Am I a Sex Addict? – Test
“Knowing you are a sex addict doesn’t mean you are bad or perverted or hopeless. It means you may have a disease, an obsession from which many have healed.”
Dr. Patrick Carnes
Do you wonder, “Am I a Sex Addict?” Take the test below to help determine if you have a problem.
Here are some questions that may help you determine if you may have a problem and should seek help. You may exhibit many of these behaviors or very few. The number of check marks is not necessarily a measure of your addiction. Left untreated addiction is a progressive disease.
When answering the questions, use the last 12 months of your life as a frame of reference. Be honest with yourself; only you will see the results of your test.
This quiz is not meant to diagnose sex addiction. The results cannot substitute for a full evaluation by a healthcare professional, and should only be used as a guide to understanding any problematic sexual behaviors and the potential health, legal, social and family issues involved with it.
Note: Never Minimize Suicidal Thoughts
If you’re feeling suicidal, immediately tell someone who can help. Call your doctor, go to the emergency room, call 911, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255). Getting care and the proper treatment can help you overcome thoughts of suicide.
