I watched porn for 15 minutes just now but didn't fap.

    Have I already relapsed ? Just about when I was to go deeper into the videos and jerk off, I realized that I do not want to do it. Little precum has made its way out though. Just going to take a bath and watch 'Lord of the Rings' before sleeping

    I am currently on a 30 days Hard Mode. Will today count as a relapse. Please suggest. Would be really thankful.

    I think that because precum came out, it is a relapse.

    It's your reboot. Ultimately you have to decide. That being said, if you are following the default rules, You have No PMO. That means No Porn, No Masturbating, or No Orgasm, meaning if you violate any one of those things, it's a reset.

    Also, 15 minutes is not accidental exposure. I would suggest at 15 minutes, you had more than enough time to realize what you were doing and ultimately make a free will choice to continue.

    But again, you know your recovery criteria, so what do you think? Did you break your rules?

  5. If you're giving up porn and you watched 15 minutes of porn then this definitely counts as a relapse.

    I did PM and No O and being new here I hope I properly reset my clock to show day 1. Having read a lot of wonderful threads on here I have come to the conclusion that this is indeed a marathon and one that is kept with your own honor. I have set no PMO so although I am bummed I did PM I am celebrating that I did no O but I am back to day 1 nonetheless. This is a process I already feel empowered and I am training for this lifelong journey. I have yet to decide if I can have intimacy with my wife or to do a hardcore reboot. My Shrink seems to feel if I am having sensual intimacy with a partner that is should suffice but there are always so many details. The goal is real and it will be reached but just like that marathon, I have to get some mileage in, know how to hydrate, know how to recover and build up slowly so that I can go the distance. Thanks All!!!

    Yes, I admit that I did break my rules. This time I am going to be stronger at will, achieve my 30 days no PMO target. Thanks.
