    Yesterday while I was at the store I came across a product with a slightly sexual image, which made me worry whether that counts as a relapse or not....I know sexual images are everywhere in our world but I am still wondering on whether that affects my reboot or whether it counts as a relapse that I came across such a product while at the store I visited. I'd love to hear thoughts and opinions as well as explanations on whether it affects my reboot or not

    I think the attitude is what really matter when coming across sexual imagery. Like if you see it on purpose to get an arousal, it could be considered relapse for you. But if you come across it and have no control about it, and don't stare, it can't be considered a relapse.

    I would not count it as a relapse. My opinion is that when things are out of my control, i don't count it as a relapse.

    So what you're saying is that images that pop up on the street do not count as a relapse? Only the things that I search on purpose count as a relapse?

    I have slipped up recently, no porn for 8 months and being back in the real world outside of lockdown is horrible for my sobriety, there is temptation everywhere, and I'm utterly exhausted and want some restbite and comfort and I'm not getting that from my sexual relationship with my partner of the last 20 years, there is a signifcant age gap and things are not what they used to be in the bedroom and it feels quite unfair sometimes, I haven't had exciting intimacy for a very VERY long time and I'm trying to be the best person I can be. I didn't FAP as it were but part of me feels like at least that would relieve some tension.
    I guess I just need to start again.

    No ,it is not a relapse, you didn't searched for it, they appears suddenly and that is out of our control.
