    Hi I’ve been on a streak for about 5 days now. I never really had a huge addiction to porn or masturbating and was sometimes able to control it but wanted to better myself because I am currently trying to loose weight. Unfortunately, today I was edging (which I believe means hard or close to masturbating; correct me if I’m wrong please) and precummed after looking at regular non-nude photos on Instagram and was snot watching porn. I know this is bad and tried to distract myself but I realized I had little to jo precum. So I was not doing it for more than 5 minutes and I was only hard but not masturbating or pants down. I want to apologize if this is graphic I am just new to this and wanna be as detailed as possible. I am currently using the app “StopFap” a free app to track your progress. Anyways, I wanted to know if this would have broke my streak? Again, I was not doing it for long and never ended up “stroking” or masturbating completely. Please tell me know because my mind knows this is wrong but my this is all my body wants to do. I am almost at 7 days for the first time ever and feel way better. Thankyou

    If you gotta ask, then you already have your answer. Anything else is just attempts at justification. And in the end, the "streaks" have no meaning. Do you want to change your life or not? Because that's what this is about, kicking addiction is not only about not doing one specific thing, but to shift your life for the better. Also, define "huge" addiction. Addiction is addiction, if you logically do not want to do a thing, but you do it anyway because you can't stop yourself, you're addicted and the rest is just details.
    Yes, it's harsh, but it's time to make your own fate, and you can certainly do it. Won't happen overnight, but if you're honest to yourself and do your best, you'll make it.

    Of course I want to change my life. I was just mentioning that I didn’t have as big of an addiction as most people on here do and am sometimes able to control it.

    If your telling me I’ve already answered my question then I think it hasn’t. I understand your point on streaks but for me it is good at keeping track of things and my progress. I think when you are starting no cap regardless of “looking at something” or not (just going with your day) pre cum is natural but I wanted to make sure since i was new to this.

    I hope now you can answer my question.

    Thankyou for your help!
