Have you ever about this? It is called for someone who like to steal somthing founded. I have a friend who suffered this thing, even just a little things he founded would he take. What do you think about this sickness, because i am sure it is hard to wipe this habit off.

I've never known a kleptomaniac. Now I'm not judging anybody, but I once read this definition: Kleptomaniac: a rich thief.

I think that stealing is something that you have to grow out of. I used to have a huge problem with stealing. I would tell people that I was going to steal something before I did just to see if they could catch me even with warning and most of them couldn't. I never was medicated for it or anything, but I eventually grew out of it.

Kleptomania is a strong desire to steal. Often a kleptomaniac person steals things he could have bought easily.The person steals just out of tension. Eating disorders and substance abuse disorders are common in individuals wih kleptomania. This disorder is rather easy to treat. It is important to make the patient realize that others are harmed by the stealing activities and also by keeping the person busy in another occupation.
