When doing good becomes an obsession, it also is counted under mania list. Giving gifts and presents are good. Who would not love to see a smile on their loved one’s faces? But for some people gift giving becomes an obsession. It goes to a level where they become broke and faces problems of taking debts and credits.


We all must have fallen in love at some point of time. Or we might have some kind of affection or an urge to propose to someone we have a crush on. But making it an obsession is so unusual. Gamomania is an obsession where the Gamomaniac has a bizarre obsession of asking different people to marry at the same time.


It’s such a kind act to love wild animals. No harm in that. But for some people the liking of wild animals goes to a point where it becomes a madly obsession, so much that they also choose to live among them.


It’s the habit of compulsive lying. Sometimes they exaggerate things to justify their stories. It becomes so much that they assume its normal and do not even consider it wrong.
