This study aims to explore recovery for those who ring psychic hotlines excessively. Participants were self-selected and were predominantly female, educated, employed and single. The cohort is retrieved from the Psychic Junkie website, which is the only online support place for these people recovering from ringing psychics excessively. Recovery was defined as attempts to stop or to cut down ringing psychics. Recovery included abstinence or harm reduction strategies to control the amount of spending on psychics. A popular attempt to remain abstinence from psychic hotline ringing was within a spiritual context, which included strategies such as prayer, meditation, and attending 12 step groups. Other strategies included blocking psychic hotlines on their phone, cutting up credit cards, counselling, and medication. Harm reduction strategies included setting a budget to decrease the time spent talking to psychics.
