    I'm sure this question has been asked a lot of times but anyways. My opinion is that it should depending on how it makes you feel. ( i havent watched porn but edged a lot today depending on my feelings tomorrow i will decide if i want to reset.

    Depends. If you're actually jerking off with the goal of getting near orgasm I consider that a relapse. For me there has been days where the fantasies got strong and I even got to touch myself a bit just to see how I'd feel but I didn't get even near orgasm. I don't see that as relapse at least.

    Well, are you going hard-mode, abstaining from PMO? Then yes. If just abstaining from P, & you didn’t watch any P or P-subs then no, not a relapse.

    For me, I think it isn't as u still can feel an urge after edging, but why do it in the first place

    But still, imo, edging means that you surrendered to your urges

    Depending on how I felt today I've decided to not reset. Simply I dont feel back at 0 more like 3-4 but deducting is a stupid practice.

    Although I'm going hard mode I might as well switch to noP. Small steps are necessary in order to reach further! I cannot be going hard mode when I have an addiction since I remember myself. This thread helped me a lot. Thank you.

    This is what I’m doing too, I’ve realized my main nemesis is P and P-substitutes, & feel like MO are natural behaviours which almost never reach a compulsive level, without P that is. Bonobos M too... I think of it this way, if my urge is so bad that I’m just beside myself, what would I rather do? Just MO & get it over with, or binge P and get dopamine-intoxicated for hours upon hours. I’m doing NoP, so if an urge is bad enough, I may M for like 4-5 mins, & usually my sense comes back by then & I stop. Most importantly I don’t have to feel depressed about it that everything been lost. Come to think of it, P is a lot like doing cocaine, you’re pretty high while you’re at it, but higher you’re, the worse is your crash the day after. Same mechanism too, all dopamine-related.

    Hi, there. I am doing hard mode, but I have been edging here and there throughout the day for about 15-30 minutes at a given time. Do you guys consider this a reset or not? I am close to finishing my third week on hard mode. The tough parts have been the flatline (headaches, fatigue, and insomnia).

    Take it from me under no circumstance do not edge it is very dangerous it releases a huge amount of dopamine plus it just will continue to set you back on your journey and don’t think of it as a journey it’s more of a lifestyle

    edging as in PM without O? yeah definitely. Not only that, it is even worse than PMO.

    It gives endless dopamine rush, unlike doing a quickie PMO.

    Also my doctor said it is dangerous to masturbate without ejaculation (he said this when i went for testicles aches)

    No, I don't do PM without O, I just edge with no PMO. I guess if you consider edging masturbating, then I am M-ing without the O.

  18. It should be, as you're stimulating yourself and stopping before the point of no return. Even if you don't O you're still giving your brain what it wants, dopamine...

    Many times I wake up at night or morning and im kind of humping my blanket or pillow during my sleep, when I wake up it takes me a few seconds to realize that Im kind of fapping and then I stop immediately.

    Techically its fapping but I cannot control this, its so damn annoying but also a sign that my penis is recovering overnight I guess. I have this my entire life but came back strongly around day 150-200 as my flatline was getting less and less. Currently at day 300 with ups and downs, some days no sexual interest and the other days thats the only thing I want to think about.
