But the treatment is the same in either case, just telling people no isn't going to work if it's a deep seated psychological urge, but working with the person to identify ways to fill or supress the urge without doing the harm does tend to work.


I found this link while doing some internet browsing on another subject. It is mainly about wells and touches on the 'why' people leave offerings at wells. Wells do seem to be the biggest draw to people leaving offerings and as the article points out the psychology seems to be 'You get nowt for nowt'.

I'm not condoning just trying for an insight.
