Kokomo Tribune Columnist Ed Vasicek wrote, “Ravenous spenders often work long hours (or take a second job) to support their addiction. Notice that they are NOT willing to give up their purchase binges, but they ARE willing to give up their time and energy. Some of that time and energy COULD have been directed toward developing a meaningful marriage, interaction with the children, cultural development, spiritual growth, or community and club involvement. But what is the focus of ravenous spenders? Buying, working, charging, and making payments. Please understand this: the problem is not so much that ravenous spenders enjoy material things too much. It is that they enjoy the rest of their lives—including other people—too little.”
