Does this count as a relapse?

    I know I’m posting these questions almost daily, but it just helps me clear up some questions I have about the things I do.

    Today is day 2 and I’m feeling pretty good already (compared to what I felt the other day).

    I’m starting to get a clearer head and my energy is starting to increase big time.

    I had this anxiety over what was a relapse, and what is not.

    today I felt like I had to question if this is.

    So I was playing a game to take my mind off of things because of the energy increase I’ve been having, I was playing a completely inncocent game obviously.

    I then saw an ad pop up and it was timed (I hate these because depending what the ad is it can be annoying.)

    I tried exiting multiple times but I had to wait it out. When I clicked the X to exit the ad, the App Store pulled up and I saw a woman’s cartoon face on the front of the app. I don’t remember minor details, as I didn’t take a long look intentionally. But what did happen was I was trying to close it and I looked at it a couple of times and I got aroused.

    Since this was not porn, did it count?

    Even if it was a slip up, will I be fine?

    You are just too anxious about all this! Chill out, you are over thinking everything!

    If you are concerned about what could show on a phone or tablet game, don’t play them!

    You’ve not ruined your streak, you didn’t seek it out, presumably didn’t act out either.

    It ok to ask questions, but to obsess with whether or not you’ve reset/relapsed could end up being a cause of you relapsing due to being too anxious.

    Be nice to yourself, don’t think every action, omission, error is going to affect you. ya don’t wanna become a nofap addict now do u?

    Thank you, I’ll make sure not to obsess too much and focus on moving on when I notice something.
