    So I am 25 years old and started my nofap journey 62 days ago. For 62 days I have stayed away from porn and not masturbated. On day 63 I watched an episode of tv series where a couple was having sex, no display of private parts, I did not masturbated then. I finished the episode and went to sleep. In the morning When i woke up I thought about that scene a little got turned on a little and ended up masturbating. Is this a reset? if yes, do i start on day 1 or just go back by 10 days or something? I really want to quit watching porn and masturbation.

    Something like this happened to me once this year and I expect it's a common thing. I had a good talk with myself and decided that I would only set my streak back by a single day. If it happened again, I would double it to two days.
    And if it happened again, I would reset to zero. Learn from it and keep up the good fight.

    Thanks mate. I will go back a few days on my streak and keep up the good fight. Furthermore, I will be more careful and take more strict measures to prevent this. Thanks for the support All the best to you too

    This has happened to me twice. Since I did not seek these scenes out or act on them i decided not to change my counter. I did close my eyes once I realized what was happening.

    The brain works in mysterious ways and I theorize conquering these surprises only made my recovery better. It showed me how much stronger my willpower had become. Who knows maybe the rejection of using those pleasure pathways helped the healing. (All theory no research backing claim this up)

    Bottom line there’s no true way to measure the impact this had on you. Do what you think is best.

    Yeah, I never wanted to watch that I was able to stop it then but did not know it will have an impact in on me in the morning. I will think of ways to stop that and I will take my streak few days back. Lesson learnt. When I finish 90 days maybe something good will happen. Thanks for the advice
