Our expert says:
An addiction of any sorts would have elements of really craving/needing/depending on “things” to such an extend that it impacts on our daily functioning. Ask yourself whether you are just enjoying it or whether you are becoming obsessed with it. What would your reaction be if you were told that you are not aloud to watch it at all?...Your response to this thought could give you some indication of the emotional/psychological hold that it has on you. If you are concerned about your growing interest in porn, you could seek the professional advice of a psychologist to explore the underlying emotions and needs and gain some clarity.
