Help - Edged to test my progress, should I reset counter?

    Hi guys, I joined nofap to overcome PIED. Throughout my current streak I have abstained from PMO and O with a partner for 44 days. Recently I have felt that I was coming out of the flatline because suddenly, I am more susceptible to triggers, have even started fantasizing (no porn, but with exes), and have been having morning wood consistently for the last week.

    I got the fantasies under control, but I was curious if i could get my penis to respond without porn or fantasy. I started masturbating, slowly, with my mind clear, eyes closed, and concentrating on instrumental music I had on at the moment. The thing is, I basically edged without getting to the point of no return. I masturbated until the moment I actually felt aroused. After that, I quickly went to the bathroom and had a cold shower and then I went to sleep. I don't advice anyone to do this though, it's like playing with fire.

    I believe I should not reset my counter because my main objective in this journey is to not depend on porn for sexual arousal, but honestly, I'm not sure. Have I lost all my progress? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Technically, yes - you should. But I think what you are describing is tamer than edging and would let it slide. Certainly, do not try it again!

    Yeah, i didn't got to the edge, but I still got aroused and erect. Certainly, I would not try it again. Thanks for replying, friend.

    It's up to you if you want to reset your counter or not? This is your journey and only you know if you have stepped the line or not?

    Lol, the mind of an addict and the reasoning it comes up with. I'm sure if you're just trying to get over PIED, porn, or masturbation addiction, but either way, don't edge. Don't wank yourself at all for at least 90 days.
