Help me kick my compulsive shopping habit!

I've been aware for a while now that I had an issue with compulsive shopping: basically, buying stuff I don't really need. I haven't worried about it too much up until now because I make a very good salary, and I don't hoard stuff, so it doesn't cause an issue with having too much junk in my house. If I have too much of something, I give it to the the thrift store.
Rock bottom: This afternoon I found myself running around the house scraping up small change so that I could meet a friend for coffee. I make US $120,000 a year and have no credit card debt. I am ready and willing to change, but I don't know where to start. Ideas?
