2. You can always find a way to justify your actions by claiming you're actually saving money.

3. You have, at least once, called your bank and claimed you've been a victim of credit card fraud. 

But you then go over your statement, tally up all your purchases, and realise you're just an absolute moron.

4. You're constantly coming up with excuses for why you deserve what you want.

Whether that's treating yourself for good things, or commiserating for bad things - you'll come up with some reason why you need approximately 50% of the items in Topshop.

8. And finally, you have very low standards for your recovery.

Mainly because you don't actually want to change.
