    About an hour ago, I was sitting down and I had an urge. I kept trying to sit correctly to avoid accidentally rubbing myself but it kept happening, I got pleasure from it. I then worried about it for a bit then I almost completely started to fantasize (20 minutes ago) for a split second I felt the dopamine rush and the urges to PMO came strong. Very strong. Whenever I walked or sat down I was trying my best to avoid it because I know I shouldn’t be enjoying it. But I kept getting pleasure from it. Now, the urges are a lot less intense. I did not give in by watching P or MOing. But I was afraid that my fantasizing heavy for a split second was a relapse. I was about to give in, like I was on the edge of the cliff in that moment. But I didn’t. I did not PMO.

  2. Good! This kind of thing can happen. But don't worry too much about it - if you rub or touch yourself, yeah, it's pleasurable. Nothing new there. You can feel great shame about it or you can just take it calm and move on with your life. I think you know which is the best choice. Come on, brother, you've got this.

    Good job on fighting the urges! By my standards, you didn't relapse. However, fantasizing is definitely going to lead to seeking out P-substitutes and then PMO. Just keep fighting those urges. The best thing to do is try your best not to touch yourself and to go and focus on some sort of hands-on task (push-ups, washing dishes, laundry, meal prep). I'm in my mid-20s and living on my own so house-chores are always a way for me to escape the urges. Even cleaning your room and re-arranging stuff in your room helps.

    Once there was a moment I felt like I will die if I don't relapse but guess what I didn't it just all in the brain if suddenly that time ur relatives visited ur house and u are chilling u won't even remember about urges as urges passes u must let them pass if u must relapse then say tmrw if u said tmrw then tmrw say maybe tmrw do it like that increase ur power of defeating urges as they are hard but beatable with proper training.

    I think it helpful to do some outdoor activities rather than stay in your room.As Gary Wilson said,"Exercise is a solid mood regulator",it seems that exercise is the most universally beneficial.By the way you can try to click the Panic Button when you are close to relapse next time.
