Being addicted to porn is just like being addicted to drugs or alcohol. So, it shouldn't come as any surprise that most men won’t let themselves admit they’re addicted. Denial is a strong state of mind!

But don't take my word for it... If you want to know for sure whether you've got a porn problem, complete this 25-question quiz using the instructions below:

Now all you need to do is count up the number of times you answered “Yes” and then find the appropriate scoring in the section below:
How to Score Your Quiz Results:
?You Answered 5 or Less YES’s
If you scored less than 5 Yes’s, there’s a 50/50 chance you’re lying to yourself about at least some of these answers. The first thing you should do is go back and make sure you’re being totally honest.
If you’re still here, then congratulations! You probably aren't addicted to porn. At least, not in the way that many men reading this are.
Keep in mind that porn statistics tell us only 1 in 200 porn-viewing adults believe they’re addicted, but 70% of men and 20% of women look at porn at least once a month.
The moral is that you shouldn't take your low score here as a reason to keep looking at porn… Stop while you’re ahead. There are plenty of [reasons to stop looking at porn] even if you’re not addicted.
?You Answered 6 to 12 YES’s
You’re addicted to porn, but it’s not too late to quit cold turkey without extreme difficulty. Still, no one should underestimate how hard it is to stop a regular porn habit.
If you’re in this score range and you don’t take immediate action, I can guarantee you that porn will continue to worm itself deeper into your brain. Quit now because it will only ever get harder to quit, and months will turn into years as your sex life continues to decay.
Seriously, make today the day that you start saying “no”. It will only get harder tomorrow.
?You Answered 13 or More YES’s:
Want to know what my score would've been when I first realized I had a porn addiction?
25 out of 25.
I would've said “Yes” to every single question up there. In fact, that’s how I came up with this quiz… I just thought about all the things I did that I've seen other addicts do too.
If this is you, I’m sorry. Really and truly, I am. I've been there and I know it’s going to be a long and difficult road. But you must face it. You have to conquer your habit.
For the sake of your marriage, your wife, your kids and yourself, you MUST beat your porn addiction. From this day forth, you’re David and porn is your Goliath. Time to man up and kill the giant!
Wherever you scored, my advice is to go back to [Porn Addiction 101] and figure out what to do from here. Whether you want to [quit looking at porn] or learn more about [what porn does to your brain], we've got you covered inside Husband Help Haven.
