    Okay! So I'm on day 12 of nofap and I was watching a video about a female YouTuber and in the video it has a picture on the thumbnail on the girl naked laying on bed but on the bed but she wasn't showing anything like her boobs or vagina but when I got to a comment that pointed out that there was a nip slip in the video I looked the the time stamp, and I caught myself feeding into my urges so I left the video and I noticed a few minutes later that there was a tiny just a tiny bit of clear liquid. But I didn't look at p didn't m and didn't O but should I reset? :(
     
  2. If you knowingly aroused yourself to any sort of pixels...yes it’s a reset.

    It depends on your goals. I would say no, this is not a relapse. Seeing cute girls on the internet is very hard to avoid in general, eventually you're going to stumble into a similar situation again. It sounds like you were aroused and than decided to stop before you did any danger to yourself. This is good. You know where the line is. Just keep going and don't look at cute girls on the internet as best you can. It will lead you to watch P.

    I would not count it as the reset either. The most problematic, though, is "I looked the the time stamp..." (you did it intentionally, out of - not contained - curiosity, right?) So consider also this:

    What is your challenge? (in number of days): If anything else than "infinity" than you may regret you have not reseted the counter when you eventually achieve your goal since you may still feel like the victory is not that "absolute". (Sombedy has mentioned this already here in the forum somewhere...). I mean, once you start hesitating was it reset or not, you are in a risk that this hesitation will last for your entire streak till the final victory. So I would say; Imagine yourself celebrating the end of this streak. Is there any risk this little event can harm your championship? If so, isn't it better to reset now for the sake of better feelings later?

    If, on the other hand, you go for the "infinite" streak and just use the counter as self-motivation, then resetting the counter just because of this little thing may actually demotivate you and eventually lead to a relapse.

    I'm conflicted, because I do feel a little less bad because it wasn't Blately porn and did directly searched porn up but I when it came to the nip slip thing I was generally curious that something like that actually got away with being in the video because you don't see stuff like that on YouTube but Ik what you mean. I think.. I'ma keep the streak because I didn't look at porn, beat my meat or orgasm, I guess in a way it is like I came across a sex scene in a TV show and didn't skip it .
