Help, My Friend Is A Kleptomaniac by Ronke2811(f): 8:46am On Mar 12, 2007
i have this very good , nice and wonderful friend, weve being friends since 2 decades now. she is very undersatnding and can do anything for you.
she is the first in a family of four, very pretty, brillant and has a good paying job( she earns 300k per month) and she is from a very wealthy family.
but she do have a problem: she cant but take things from your back especiallly money, i noticed back then in university so i am always cautious wenever we go out to stay beside her all through.
sometimes she might just take 100naira, 500 naira from your bag, and to make matter worse she doesnt use them for anything.
she is getting married in the next two months, i really need advice from my fellow nairalanders on how to help her. cos she is really a friend in need and indeed.

Honey, that's very nice of you, wanting to help your friend

But the fact is that it could be inborn in her, and therefore a lil bit difficult to get her to stop, but then there is only one person that can guarantee her quitting this disgraceful act,

GOD. Like i've always said, God can stop every bad habit, talk to him in prayers, commit your friend to him , believe me after a while she'll automatically stop.

question for you, does she steal any and everthing she see, any where? does she do it with every one? because if it is just you she is taking money from , argghh i am confused by this post, why is she a kleptomaniac?

Well if she really is one then you can not help her, only professional help can do it for kleptomaniacs, no amount of talking will do.Goodluck to her

@ sismose
there is no confusion with the post,
she doesnt only steal from me, she does that with anybody she is around with.
anytime she see money there will this urge for her to take it. she doesnt care the amount.
