A shopaholic is a person who is addicted to shopping, who suffer with overspending.
Have you ever seen "Confessions of a shopaholic", a movie which deals whith this kind of disease ?
To de-stress, a shopaholic has to buy thousands of stuff like chothes, shoes or even kitchenware (for instance)
As far as I'm concerned, I don't consider myself as a shopaholic (fortunaltely!) but I confess that I'm fond of shoes and clothes (unfortunately for my bank account)...
And what about you ? Could you cut your credit card ?
