Gaming Addiction

Hello guys. I'm here to talk about a serious problem I've developed now that I'm an adult; shopping. And no, not clothes shopping ew. Not even music or movies or going out. I've been going to local game stores and buying anything and everything-gaming nonstop. If it's Nintendo-themed, it's mine. And I'm not saving anymore so it's scaring me. Just now I'm going to the bank and depositing money to buy a poster I promised SGC I'd get from him months ago, and also to see what I can nab on Amazon, eBay and Esty. I NEED TO SAVE FOR COLLEGE DAMNIT! But I can't stop!

So my question to you guys; anyone ever been on the same boat? Like you can't see something that's adorable like a plush or shirt, or even something badass like a replica of Link's Sword without thinking "okay I'm buying eight of those"?

Tried that. I got out of it by saying "Hm...well if I transfer money from this account to my checkings it won't be too bad..." and now I do it every other week. I know, I'm bad.

I'm like this with playing cards. I like to buy playing cards ALL of the time.
Never that much with gaming stuff, however...
I blame lack of a large amount of funds.

I've been in this exact situation pretty recently, I spent around 4000 on games, posters, plushies, manga.. and well probably 200 of that was takeaways. Now I have to save up again and it's going to be hard. I probably won't.

Yeah. I could easily spend my money on anything. My mum taught me to save during younger childhood, I saved up a hell of a lot of my birthday money or pocket money back then. Sadly, it didn't stick and I can spend far more easily. The only thing I ever really managed to budget was food - stuck to 10 a week when I lived alone. I probably could have got it lower than that, but I was too lazy to cook so I often just got eggs, bread, milk, cereal and ready meals. Safe to say I could make almost perfect omelets (It's sad when that's an achievement).

I just spend it on anything. I don't even know what on most of the time. Sometimes my money's gone a week after I've had it, and I get quiet a lot.

I was buying games all the time, for the longest time. Now, I'm kind of the opposite most of the time, unless I really want it, I just don't buy it. I just justify that I have lots of stuff already, I don't need more, and whatever I buy, I likely won't play much anyways. Try that I guess? Not much help, I know, sorry :P

If I had the money, I'd be up to my ass In anime figurines. I've already bought a Miku Hacune figurine for $50.
Moar like obsession / passion for. Not addiction.

Unless you actually get high from it. In which case, hand me some of that "merchandise".
