Where Does the Name "Shoppers Rehab" Come From?
Hi, my name is Claudia and yes, I am once a...Shopaholic!
Can I help you? Asked the sales girl in the makeup section of the achingly fashionable department store as I browsed their rails of gorgeous lipsticks.'
‘Yes, I'll take one of these in every colour,' I replied, pointing to the rows of exquisite, candy-coloured lippies.
I was supposed to be working at home, but, for some reasons I couldn't quite understand at the time, I'd left my desk, almost in a trance, to go shopping.
As the shop assistant scanned the tags on the 20 gorgeous lipsticks, I felt as if a helium balloon was being inflated inside my head.
Walking home, however, I was overcome by a different, but increasingly familiar feeling.
I no longer wanted what I'd just bought. I felt sick and guilty; back at my apartment, I already had pile of makeups, bags and clothes, unopened, but I couldn't stop buying.
I knew I had a problem, but I didn't want to face up to it. Shopping was my escape, my secret, my addiction.
Eventually, I became determined to break free of my addiction.
I put up an online store and named it "Shoppers Rehab." With this, I felt like I am still collecting items I like but the difference is, I am selling them. I sell items that are useful and not just because you will want them.
Today, I do still shop, but I have to truly desire something before I buy it.
My life and shopping habits have changed beyond recognition.
