Mindfulness is the only true cure for GAS.
Being true to yourself, including being lenient when you feel the urge to buy something. Don't berate yourself if it happens. And understanding that we are a consuming species, with urges that are nay impossible to always keep at bay. Especially these days of unrelenting consumerism. Remove some of the sirens if you feel they're urging you onwards a bad habit. MW, MG, other two letter places, YT, IG, FB. Take a step back from when you want to buy, to give yourself some space from that part of yourself that's whispering promises. There is absolutely NO offer that cannot be found again. There is no module that will fill the case. There is no piece that is really missing. Also, keep in mind that the urge is real, you're not alone, we all struggle with it, I've struggled with it for years, but the urgency itself is fake. Spend time to really check how you feel and what story you tell yourself before you buy, while you make a purchase, after, and after you have the module. Figure your habits out and why you act the way you do sometimes, especially if it's not consistent with other parts of who you are.
Start where you are
Use what you have
Do what you can
I give myself distance before I buy. Weeks, days, maybe a month. Sometimes that doesn't work but I try to be in contact with myself. Making music usually helps realize that I don't care for anything extra. Fantasizing about music does not. I have realized how much my brain enjoys troublesolving, hence I spent an inordinate amount on MG, fixing problems; more than I spent with actual case designs I've made on MG. I've changed since.
Really, try to be truly mindful about what your mind goes through when you want to buy things and talk with yourself in an honest and understanding fashion.
I can't stress this enough. Mindfulness i s the solution. I know it might sound mundane, or boring, or unfun, but for some people things can turn ugly and bereft of creativity. Consumerism can lead to doldrums and owning too much can be a problem for your creativity. Hope the above helps, it is coming from a very honest place.
