  2. Watching porn or masturbating without orgasm still causes elevated dopamine levels. Part of rebooting from PMO is to achieve dopamine balance, so edging will hinder your recovery. And my friend.. You are fighting your urges, not controlling them. You need to recognize these urges( sexual energy) and use it towards something applicable towards your recovery( like working out or doing something productive). Masturbating without orgasm is not a viable option for releasing this energy.

    In my experience, edging will only weaken your resolve and amplify the urges till you relapse again

    For me edging was all part of the PMO process...
    I cannot see any outcome other than relapse if you continue to engage in this practice

    No! It will not help with your urges. It will only greatly increase them. Find another way to fight through the urges. I'm pretty sure there isn't one successful rebooter, who has edged to reduce their urges and managed to reboot successfully. It makes the neural pathways involved in your porn addiction stronger.

    From personal experiance, this is only your addicted brain telling you it's okay to do it just a little. That's a lie. If you edge now, you will want to edge a little more very soon, and more and more and more, until you repalse.

    Find another way to fight through the urges.

    You are creating a wildfire when you to that - it's just as harmful.

    What everyone here said. Don't do it. Eventually you'll feel like you're about to explode and can't control yourself anymore.
     
  10. More harmful, because without orgasm your elevated dopamine level stays longer. Read aloud when urges come.
