Remove your payment details from steam

There's nothing wrong with buying new games every once in a while but you probably don't want to blow that much money on it. Look through your older games and see if you can get really involved in them again. Or there's places you can buy like 10 random game keys for 1 (obviously not like popular new games, but games) so if you like the thrill of buying, that's a good way to get it for cheaper.



Take as long as you need.

You can stop by identifying the reasons why you have your compulsions to buy keys. Then find strategies which would remind you that whatever you may be feeling, buying keys will not solve the root problem. The root problem is your desire to fill an inner void. Buying keys is merely an outlet. It's a symptom. Sure, buying keys is relatively harmless when compared to other things you could be buying. But think about it - if you keep feeding into your desires, then the problem will escalate. Addiction is progressive. If you don't nip it in the bud/ keep yourself in check, then eventually, your addiction to buying keys will lead to a much, much more harmful and potentially deadly addiction. It may sound stupid, and you may be thinking, "I'm only buying keys. That doesn't mean that I'll start doing smack." It doesn't matter what the object or substance is. Addiction is still addiction. The mind-set is the same regardless of what the addiction is to. If you don't address your issues or proactively work towards resolving them, then the problem will only get worse. Soon, buying keys will no longer give you the satisfaction you crave. You'll move onto other things. The progression of addiction may be over days or years - but it is always downhill. As a recovering addict, I know first-hand. I had to learn these things the hard way. You don't have to. If you feel as if seeking out the advice of your peers isn't effective enough to stop the problem, then I would suggest to seek outside help from a therapist or psychiatrist. There is no shame in someone admitting they have a problem and getting help for it. The shame is in not doing anything about your problem and allowing it to continue.

When you ask, "what do you guys think is cheaper," you're essentially asking us to co-sign your bullshit. Spending money can be an addiction. Buying unnecessary things can be an addiction. You are exhibiting addictive behaviors. It is unhealthy to ask which object(s) you should buy. It's like asking "Which is cheaper? Crack or heroin? I can't decide what to buy." It's the same concept.
Like I said earlier, it does not matter what the object or substance is. The outlet can be keys, knives, fast food, or even dope. It doesn't matter. Addiction is addiction.

Do you want help in what you should do about your addiction? Or are you asking us which is the better way to feed into your addictive behaviors?

"co-sign your bullshit" is a saying frequently used in Narcotics Anonymous. I meant no offense by it. And it sounds like you're trying to justify your buying keys/spending money by comparing what you do to what others do. It's just an observation. This isn't a debate. I'm just trying to help you to be more aware of what you do.

I'm only responsible for what I say, not how you interpret it. It was not "hating." Thank you, I appreciate the apology. No worries!
Keep in mind that I would not be spending my time on here if I didn't want to help. I have no reason to be hating on anyone.

Hey
You posted this in addictive behaviours, meaning that I think there is some part of you that wants to stop doing this. You say you buy gift cards. Maybe when you go out, you could leave your wallet at home, or only take the money you need (like bus fare) so that even when you are tempted to buy gift cards for steam you have no way to. Another suggestion is to think of all the other things you could buy with the money instead. Perhaps start a savings account, and save up for something big that you want. That way you have a goal to aim for, and you're not spending money on keys. Or, set up a budget and allocate a small amount of money you are allowed to spend on keys, and over the next few weeks try and make that smaller and smaller, so you're buying fewer and fewer keys.
Take care
