Do you want to break your impulse shopping addiction and habit of buying stuff, without dramatically changing your life? Do you want to save money? Do you want to be Underspent, not overspent? Right now, the rising cost of living is one of the biggest issues in Australia, America and the UK. According to the media, the average American owns 3.5 credit cards and owes US$15,799 in credit card debt. Three out of five American families cant pay off their credit card debts. In the UK, someone is declared insolvent or bankrupt every five minutes, and a property is repossessed every eighteen minutes. Thirteen per cent of Australian adults and seventeen per cent of Aussie kids live below the poverty line, whilst the average Australian adult spends the first eight weeks of each year working just to pay for their car. There are more than eighteen million shopaholics in the United States, and five per cent of all waste in Australian landfill is discarded clothing. In this groundbreaking and entertaining book, Rachel reveals the Seven-Step Process she took to break her shopping addiction and buying habit, without dramatically changing her life. For Rachel, the ultimate result of implementing the seven steps set out in this book was: •being Underspent-spending less than usual (she was spending less money than was required and expected) •breaking her impulse shopping addiction and habit of buying stuff •saving 38 per cent of her net (take-home) annual salary •feeling happier and more content. This is a book that people can use, not just agree with. Underspent examines in detail the problems caused by impulse shopping addictions, what triggers our shopping and buying, the challenges and personal battles we face when quitting and the seven steps to being Underspent. This is a practical guide for men and women who want to quit shopping and save money. With case studies, stories, information and practical exercises, Rachel shows you how to apply the seven steps.

Neuropathology of Drug Addictions and Substance Misuse, Volume 3: General Processes and Mechanisms, Prescription Medications, Caffeine and Areca, Polydrug Misuse, Emerging Addictions and Non-Drug Addictions is the third of three volumes in this informative series and offers a comprehensive examination of the adverse consequences of the most common drugs of abuse.

Volume 3 addresses prescription medications, caffeine, polydrug misuse, and non-drug addictions.

However, marshalling data on the complex relationships between addictions is difficult due to the myriad of material and substances.

Masters Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Industrial Management, grade: 110/110, University of Siena, course: Industrial economy, language: English, abstract: It has been more than two decades since internet boosted its potential and now it can be considered a fearful competitor of many mortal businesses such as retailers, advertisers or even intermediaries. It is also known that the advent of internet in our daily life has also changed many systems structures such as the transaction costs in B2B, B2C or even the C2C models. Internet has abolished geographical boundaries, connected people and facilitated information flow. We now live in a world that everything happens in real time, which also brought changes in economic equilibriums, marketing strategies as well as speculation margins. Amazon, Google, EBay has revolutionized the custom of traditional shopping, increasing consumers addiction to consumption by differentiating products in every possible and imaginable manner. Well, this works attempt is to shed a light on the dynamics of this evolution, to acknowledge the main players and see how equilibrium can be set and re-set incessantly in a very volatile market due to its lack of physicality (i.e there is a physical gap between supplier and demander at the purchasing moment, therefore is very difficult to build customer loyalty). The example used to extrapolate some statistical evidence is linked to group buying e-commers such as coupon companies. It is the case of Groupon.com, the daily offers company with the highest growth rate among web companies since 2008 . The first part of the study is a theoretical literature review mainly arranged to give a theoretical backup to the empirical analysis that will follow. It seems that there has been a lot of field research on the topic. I suppose the reason is the worryingly fast growing pattern of these virtual business realities. The first chapters aims to concatenate the main features of these new business models, trying to understand the differences between them and the traditional ones which offer the same products or services- also the reasons why normal firms are greatly suffering market share losses. The third chapter instead is totally dedicated to online intermediaries since they seem to be the economic agents to have better fit in this new giant virtual marketplace. Different types of intermediaries obviously play different roles in the business arena and also provoke different welfare effects in terms of costumers wellbeing. For such reasons the interesting part here is their game strategy while intermediating either information or services.
