    Is edging considered a relapse?

    No use of porn, and no orgasm.

    Does it involve self stimulation, or is your partner helping you out?

    If it is your hand on your junk, you are totally out of bounds.
    You can search the forums for "edging" if you would like to read some strong condemnations of it.

    Edging is worse. Your brain is trying to trick you into thinking its okay, just a peak maybe? And eventually you will relapse and fall into a cycle

    Edging is worse than masturbation in some ways, as it screws with your brain by keeping the dopamine elevated. We are trying to rewire our brains here by obstaining from PMO.

    Edging is M, will lead to O in no time, as possibly lead back to porn as well.

    Stay strong!!!

    Seriously, don't do it.

    It is exactly what caused a full relapse for me a while back. Thinking it was OK but in reality it is a fast track to making everything worse. Never experienced PIED until I started edging.

    Take it from someone who is fighting a bad habit of edging. Yes there is the potential benefit of avoiding the orgasm, but the dopamine flood from the constant touching is not good.

    Congrats on not doing it without porn, but edging is counterproductive.

    Only you get to decide if edging counts as a relapse or not.

    Some people find that edging helps in the beginning with their move to being pmo free. At first I didnt count edging as a relapse, only PMO.

    The goal should be to not edge. it delays the reboot, makes you over stimulated, horny and frustrated. Then just for fun your balls will ache.

    After a while you'll realise edging buys you nothing and its better to not edge.

    Appreciate all the advice!

    I haven't edged all of today. Things seem to be getting easier.

    Edging to me is stupid and akin to torture.
