Accidentally saw a bad picture, should I reset my counter?

    I was looking for reference photos to draw,
    I usually use image search to find references of models to draw.
    I didn't realize filter explicit results was off and
    once I scrolled down a little I ran into a rather bad image.

    Does this count as reason to reset my counter?

    Did you fap to it? Did you linger and fantasize? Your counter says you reset whenever you "INTENTIONALLY" watch any P, or M/edge at all. This wasn't intentional so if you didn't get sucked into the moment, then your answer is NO.

    Great job on 10 days!

    Well, your counter says you reset if you intentionally watch porn, and this wasn't intentional so you don't need to reset.

    However, I wouldn't advise looking at models if you're on a reboot. Personally I would find the temptation to continue on to more graphic images too great. It's not too bad, but it won't help in your reboot. Try to limit yourself from any suggestive material whatsoever. (It's difficult...). Be careful with image search, sometimes even explicit content can get through on safe search. I use K9 safe search, which is probably better than google (although functionality of K9 search is limited).

    Well done so far in your reboot. :)

    I'm totally staying away from google images for now. I can still feel the buzz of the temptation. Gonna put my self in a no technology zone for the night. Ah!

    Use opendns to block google images, it works for me.

    when you're looking for models to draw are they naked models? If so try searching for older naked models or girls with bikinis, personally this is opening a can of worms. Best to stick with models of guys that way you can't go wrong!

    But no in regards to your question it doesn't constitute a reset, if you didn't linger and fantasize just chalk it up as a learning experience.

    I just wrote in female reference. I think I'm totally staying away from this.. First it was bikini's then it was more the further I kept scrolling. I think I'm just gonna make robots for a few weeks.
