I have a problem - May 11th 2011, 11:09 AM

I shoplifted about 10times already. I feel guilty each time. It's not that I'm poor or need some fun or anything. It's just that sometimes I feel that I want something now and I am saving money or left it at home. I got caught a few times. But the last time I did that was about a year and a half ago. My dad sent me to my school counsellor. I might have thought I'm okay now but I still feel the urge sometimes. Now I feel very guilty whenever
I walk into any shop.

I also have a problem about vandalism, I can't seem to help it, just tearing out, scratching, drawing on public property.

Well, the first question I would ask myself is why you are doing it? Is it the rush of doing it? Both of these things are illegal, so they are definitely things to avoid. :\ Maybe when you go into a store, you should bring a friend or sibling or somebody to watch you and help you not do it. And when you go to places to vandalize, don't bring the tools to do it.
But ask yourself-why are you doing it? Is this something that can be fixed? Is there a common thing that happens on days you do it, like a fight with parents, or something of the sort?
PM me if you ever need!

You have to find something to do every time you get the urge to do one of those other things. and I agree, have you figured out why?
