    Hello guys I'm doing Nofap Hard Mode and it is Day 10 of my Nofap streak. So, today when i was watching a video game walkthrough there was a sex scene in it but however it did not show the actual sex scene and it did not show nudity... But i didn't jerk off to it...
    So, is this a relapse??

    Not if it was an accident. Just be carful, sounds triggering

    And if it was not an accident... It still is not considered to be a relapse, right?

    I think you're ok so long as you hold yourself to your goals. Be strong, be prepared to be unprepared.

    Be careful, when starting a streak, I find I'm very susceptible. No need to make things tougher than they are. Stay away from triggers.

    Cheers,

    As the other fapstronauts said here, do not play with fire. It is definitely not a relapse, but the images you saw might have planted dangerous triggers in your subconscious, waiting to show up when you feel low and you're at your lowest. Just be careful and stay awake. Good Luck

    It doesn't seem like a relapse to me. But to prevent this mental dilemma, go back to what your goals are. Do you have specific, objective measures for what constitutes success and failure? You don't want to be in a situation where you have to ask others whether you failed or succeeded. That's for YOU to decide!

    Question: When you decided to check it out, in the back of your mind was there a faint hope or desire of seeing something sexual or enticing? Even if your answer is "yes" I do not consider it a relapse.
    But be careful. It can be a road to relapse.

    Did the sex scene in the video completely surprise you? Were you absolutely 100% not expecting it?
    If so, then you learned that video games can also put you into situations that are unhealthy or tempting for you.
    If you are not surprised it was there, or you were somewhat expecting it, then you have to make some serious decisions about video games. Some are just a substitute for porn. And watching or playing games that include sexual situations will not help your recovery. Just my opinion.

    However i knew there was and me watching the video was a bit intentional from my side... But the sex scene wasn't shown completely i.e. It did not contain any nudity nor they showed any sex actions the only thing the sex scene had was only sounds and it showed only the facial expressions and it was in first person view
