Do Any Of You Struggle With Addictions Besides Your Depression?

Since I stopped drinking alcohol and smoking “Mary Jane”, I struggle with shopping. I am always ordering stuff from Amazon. I have a bad habit of that especially when I am triggered I will go shopping 🛍️. I have been getting better with the overspending but some days are a lot tougher than other days 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️I need help seriously 😳

Reading the post of @A MyDepressionTeam Member and @A MyDepressionTeam Member gives me thoughts that I am not alone about dealing with money and depression. I too, at times spend too much because I sacrifice so much in other areas of my life. I recognize that making decisions at times is difficult when I am in a deep state of suffering with many symptoms of my depression. When I am in remission it's like I can think clearly again.
