I Love to Spend:
How the Love of Impulsive Spending Can Take Control of your Life.
And how to take it back. (I Love to… Book 1)
This is a story of the love of spending money. The good, the bad and the ugly.
How much fun it is to do and how hard it is to recover from the aftermath. I propose to describe (mostly by personal examples which some might call oversharing) the psychological dynamics of how we lose ourselves in the moment and what we need to do to find ourselves again. And how self-hypnosis and guided meditation can help us gain control of our spending. Not to stop spending, just to do it properly.
Let the healing begin.
About the Author
Ziad Sawi MD is a Las Vegas physician who loves to spend money, especially on cars and travel. He has on occasion gotten himself into trouble for such spending and “I Love To Spend,” one of his first forays into writing, is both a chronicle of said troubles (which some might call oversharing) and lessons learned from them. Ziad intended Spend to help explain the psychological dynamics behind compulsive spending and help create self-awareness of the problem. Hopefully in a very humorous and enjoyable way, but without making light of problems of impulsive habits. Ziad then uses guided meditation and self-hypnosis to help you gain control of your life again. Hypnosis being another one of Ziad’s areas of interest.
Ziad is a board certified anesthesiologist and also a pain management specialist. Shortly after writing Spend, he became so interested in the disease of addiction (and people can be addicted to more than alcohol and drugs) that he gained board certification in addiction medicine as well. After that and some soul searching and deliberating, Ziad decided to dive into writing head first into writing and is in the process of completing a number of other books with an addiction theme. Look for “I Love to Dilly Dally” (about procrastination and lack of motivation) “I Love to Gorge” (overeating) “I Love to Snort” (about how someone…not autobiographical!!!…can gradually slide into cocaine and substance abuse.)
