    Last night, I was looking at pictures of something (not trying to get aroused) and I stumbled across images that got me aroused, I tried to ignore them multiple times, but I got so aroused I almost fapped right then and there. Now I have urges still and also I feel a little bit of pressure in my head. Do you think it’s related to getting aroused? Or could it be because I’m thinking about it.

    You searched for such images of your own volition? >> closer to the addiction, therefore relapse.
    You touched yourself, in the literal sense? >> relapse
    If you are still going strong without stimuli (searching porn and sexual images) and haven't done the two above, you're fine.

    To clarify, the images were not images I remotely hoped to get aroused from. But after I got so aroused I almost looked at Instagram pics. But closed the app and continued the streak.
     
  4. You didn’t relapse at all. There is a difference between a reset and a relapse. A relapse is a full PMO session or MO session if that is your goal. To see some images feel aroused and feel urges just means your human haha.

    Not sure why it gave you a headache maybe because your brain is craving it but your denying it its hit of porn so you kind of are having mental strife over it. Easily could be that

    Yeah that’s true. It’s really weird for me personally. Whenever I would get really aroused and then not masturbate I would have really really strong urges and I would have physical symptoms (brain fog, head pressure, fatigue, really dry eyes, slight social awkwardness (not as much as pmo), flatline feeling, etc.)

    it definitely could be because I stopped myself when I would before usually give in and fap. In that case, I think it’s really good.
