Here are some questions you can ask yourself to help you determine whether porn addiction may be a concern for you:

• Do you find that you think about porn all of the time?

• Does your pornography habit make you feel powerless, as if you have no control over it?

• Is your pornography habit starting to negatively impact your relationship?

• Do you find that your partner often questions you about your obsessiveness toward porn?

• Do you prefer to spend your time alone, with porn, as opposed to being social or spending time with others?

• Is your compulsion for porn making you create a sort of double life, a side of you that you don’t want others to know about?

• Is porn affecting your work, either in lower work productivity or because you’re violating office policy by viewing it while on the job?

• Have you noticed that what used to excite you pornographically no longer does?

• Have you expanded your pornography preferences into areas you once thought were disgusting or “wrong”?

• Have you tried to walk away from it, yet find that you keep coming back for more?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it’s possible that you have a pornography addiction, which can negatively impact your life in a number of ways.
