    I wouldn't count that as a relapse. You didn't masturbate to orgasm.

  4. If you voluntarely searched for it then it will fall into the edging category, it is really up to you, because only you know how it made you feel.

    Stop wanting to get away with fucking edging and at the same time bullshiting yourself and people.NoFap = No porn and no masturbation.It’s the porn that makes someone addicted to PMO ! P leads to M and M leads to O.I’ve relapsed enough times kid, I know what I’m talking about.

    I think that when we do PMO, we are setting our head to an PMO mode. Also i think that in the real sex with another woman, your head is setting your mode to a different mode, not the PMO mode.

    Every time you watch porn, you are setting your brain mode in a bad thing.

    I would classify it as a reset not a relapse since you stopped youself. That being said if you start watching more and edging to it yeah it's a relapse.

    Its discouraging to put your counter back to 0 but you haven't lost any process unless you start binging.

    Bullshit.SEEING porn by accident (maybe a pop-up or some shit like that) and then quickly shut the page is the ONLY time when it doesn't count as a relapse (since it's unintentional).But WATCHING porn is always INTENTIONAL, so no matter how long you watched it, it's a motherfuckin' relapse son ! I've said it enough on this forum but you guys don't seem the grasp that idea: NOFAP IS A FUCKING LIFESTYLE AND A FUCKING MINDSET ! Why the hell would you go watch porn is you're on NoFap ? It just shows that you're not taking this shit seriously and that you're a childish motherfucker who wants to do something impossible which is to walk two paths at the same time (the path of NoFap and the path of PMO) ! Some of you still have something in the mind that tells that "PMO is ok" and that's why you keep relapsing and then bitching on the forum about how shitty your life is and how depressed you are because of the relapses ! PMO WILL ALWAYS LET YOU DOWN ! EVERY SINGLE TIME ! I'm telling you: YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SUCCEED ON NOFAP UNLESS YOU COMMIT TO NOFAP ! (which includes giving up P(porn)M(masturbation)O(orgasm) forever without ANY sorts of edging bullshit !).Just man the fuck up and DO IT ! You won't die if you stop playing with your little ding-dong and fuck up your brain with PMO ! In the contrary, you're life will only get better ! You freaking guys.

    Wait no no that's not what I meant lol

    A reset is you resetting your days back to 0. You looked at P on purpose that means you reset your days back to 0.

    Replase is going the full PMO route.

    Looking a P is bad yes but you not doing the full extant of damage by PMOing.

    And I mean like what OP did here he looking at P shortly and stoped.
    Not full 3 hour edge session

    Reset your days to 0 and reflect what made you look a P and try again

    To me, what you call a "reset" is the same thing as a relapse since you're back to square one.It's seems like it's not as bad a "real" relapse, but it only seems that way because we like to sugarcoat shit and not face our demons.I tried every sorts of bullshit/edging possible, trust me (that's why I talk about how bad PMO is with so much authority).I had a period when I was only watching porn without MO and first it was only a few seconds just like @shane813flow.But one thing always leads to another and I ended up MO at some point.It may take seconds, mintues, hours , days, months, years or whatever but if you watch porn, you'll MO sooner or later.Why ? Because porn gives you a dopamine high that you get used to overtime so you want MORE.And what's more than P ? It's the M and the O !

    I know I believe you, I did that to as well. I start with P-subs then to P actress fully clothed and then to full blown relapse. When I was looking at P-subs I still kept my counter.

    Now If I do anything like that I reset back to 0.
    Instead of keeping my counter until the PMO happens. Keeps me focused. I don't want to keep going back to 0

    Relapse is a very personal level definition. If I look at porn intentionally, I would call it a relapse for myself because I want to remove porn from its roots from my head and make NoFap my lifestyle. It's really up to you based on your goals. But if you are fine with edging to porn occasionally, you are taking a big risk and you should consider reviewing your goals.

    Your headache is a result of your brain craving a bigger shot of dopamine. In withdrawal, I get a lot of pressure headaches.
    I can't tell you to do with your program, but, from my own experience, when I used to take quick looks at porn, it would lead to longer looks at porn, which would lead to PMO.
     
  20. That's the power of beautiful nude women even in pixel fantasy land! The stimulus digs deep roots into the conscious and subconscious mind! The suffering of addiction isn't funny. Mister Fire has every right of being very stern and no-nonsense about the matter. Save the joys of sex with a real partner! Even voluntarily stroking myself for a second or voluntarily seeing porn for even one second, and my day-counter goes back to zero. No questions asked and no excuses!
