  • be honest, if you are a good mate, ask her to stop for her own good!!

  • Thanks mum888 – so kind of you. :)

  • Your welcome. You’re a good friend to her .

  • Thanks for the long and good answer. It is helpful and I will do what I can. :)

  • A friend of mind can be impulsive in spending especially if her moods are not that good, ( hence , retail therapy ) and she can buy multiple clothing and seen her layby jewellery in the past etc … and it doesn’t matter what I say , she still went ahead with it . You might say something like , do you need that many clothes or can you afford this etc.. as a hint if she is a close friend of yours but in the end there is nothing much you can do for her as she is holding the wallet . If she is aware she has a compulsion then maybe suggest you go to a counsellor with her to stop the habits but she has be believe it is a problem first. Good luck anyway .
