Addictions are hard to shake off and it is a frustrating part of life for many people. The compulsion to continuously engage in self-rewarding acts despite the negative and damaging consequences to one's self and others is peculiar behavior that can be a challenge to identify and treat.

It could an addiction to video gaming, drugs, alcohol, gambling, social media sites such as Facebook and of course, it can also be an addiction to porn. In fact, psychologists from Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary said that 4 percent of users may have a porn addiction problem and they have formulated a way to reveal if an individual has it.

Published as the Problematic Pornography Consumption Scale (PPCS),  they claim that they have identified an "optimal cutoff" to identify problematic and non-problematic porn consumers. The quick five-minute test may then help you find out if you indeed have a "porn addiction."

'The PPCS is a multidimensional scale of problematic pornography use with a strong theoretical basis that also has strong psychometric properties in terms of factor structure and reliability," the psychologists said in their research paper.
