40 Questions for Self-Diagnosis as Sex and Love Addict
The following questions are designed to be used as a tool to identify possible signs of sex and love addiction.
While not an absolute tool of diagnosis, these short, to-the-point questions have often proved to be effective as a prompt of self-diagnosis. We appreciate that the diagnosis of sex and love addiction is a matter that needs to be both very serious and very private. We hope that these questions will prove useful in recognizing patterns linked to obsessive or compulsive sexual behavior.

If reading through these questions has brought home to you the fact that your sexual activity, romantic behaviour, or emotional involvements may be suspect, what now?
First of all, rest assured that you are not alone – that many of us have lived out addictive patterns highlighted by these questions, and have found recovery through Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous.
If there are regular S.L.A.A. meetings in your area, attendance at these meetings will bring you into contact with recovering sex and love addicts. If you live in Singapore, and wish to attend an S.L.A.A. meeting, you can find out more about attending our meetings here.
In the event that you know of no such meetings, we encourage you to write to S.L.A.A. Singapore or to visit the S.L.A.A. FWS website for information on locations where meetings exist. In response, you will be forwarded whatever meeting information we have for your area, or the S.L.A.A. contact person nearest your location.
Above all, know that recovery is possible, and that a path to recovery does exist which can be shared.
