Am I an Addict?

How do you know if you’re struggling with sex and/or porn addiction? What are the signs of addictive or compulsive behaviour? Are the symptoms of sex addiction different to the symptoms of porn addiction? Or the symptoms of compulsive sexual behaviour disorder? Does the type of behaviour define it as a problem? Or how often you do it?

These are very common questions that we are frequently asked and the assessment tool below will help you to decide if you have a problem and also help you to decide what action you want to take. As you’ll see, the symptoms are all the same and they’re not measured by amount or type, but by consequences. Take the anonymous assessment today and find out for yourself.

Pivotal has changed my life and my way of thinking. When I first saw the course I was nervous to take the first step as no one wants to admit they have a problem. However it has turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life and has put me on a journey of recovery. It’s not easy and you will have to work for it but I promise you it’s worth it!
