    Absolutely. I celebrate every hour I make it. Every day I do a little victory lap in my head. Keep going!

    One questions guys! I looked at some porn images last night. Maybe for 2 minutes i got hard and quit the page. Does this mean I relapsed? Do I have to start all over again? Didn't touch myself.

    The answer to this is something only you can decide. If you had a reset criteria such as mine, then a reset would be required. However, many on this site do not apply such stringent criteria to themselves. Some interpret PMO as the three aspects all together i.e. P + M + O = reset. Others would see it differently i.e. P or M or O = reset. Some place some significance on the amount of time spent doing this (although that seems like an excuse).

    Personally, I reset my counter whenever I intentionally use any porn, edge or masturbate or orgasm at all (unless it is a wet dream). If you do not change the wording of your counter, then you should at least be clear in your own mind, exactly what it means. I am not intending to have sex, so what I am doing is called hard mode. All of this can sound rather pedantic, but there is a very serious point to it - relating to the 90 Day NoFap Challenge.

    Essentially, we are all here because we are addicted to masturbation and/or pornography. Therefore, we need a reboot of our neural pathways which takes several months. The younger you were when you watched high-speed internet porn the longer your brain will take to recalibrate itself. Hard mode is the quickest way to reach your objective. But if you allow occasional masturbation or do what you just did, the reboot takes longer still.

    So, your personal interpretation is that you can watch porn as long as you do not touch yourself?

    I think that is the right decision

    Remember, pornography is not just video, it includes sex stories and still photos.

    I don't think so, but the further you are from temptation the easy will be to avoid it.
