Addictive use of pornography is frequent, compulsive, distressing, and impacts functioning.

Things to look for include:

Social Impairment
Failure to fulfill obligations at work, school, or at home; continued use despite consequences in these areas
Risky Use
Continued use despite physical or psychological problems
