    Hello !

    Sunday, I have receive a friend request on facebook from a bot. When I have click on his profile, I saw a thumbnail very explicit of a porn video. But I have instantly close the page.

    So my question is, should I reset ? Or not ?
     
  2. It's up to you. If it wasn't intentional then you don't have to. Nevertheless keep in mind that streak doesn't mean anything if it's not genuine. So if you think bad about it then reset. It's just a number, it won't change the progress you made and being honest with yourself make you feel better in the end - that's what I believe in.

    Yes I think I don't have to, because porn is everywhere on internet and It's so difficult to avoid it. For exemple if my streak was 200 days, but I found by mistake a porn picture or something like that, and reset the counter at day 200 just because it was a mistake, i found this pity.

    I've come across things involuntarily and ignored them. It's up to you, but from my experience, I only consider relapses as poor and intentional behaviors that happen consciously or subconsciously. I would say it's not a relapse since it did not happen of your own volition and more so, you immediately took positive action. Again though, it's up to you.

  8. Recently, I've started looking for some manga title that interested me. I began reading it knowing that it's 18+ (though it wouldn't mean anything porn every time, just gore etc.). I suddenly saw a page with something that in the past would mean porn to me and I closed it. I felt terrible, because after a while I realised that I wanted to see something like that, but it was almost as if I hadn't thought about that aim immediately when starting looking. I had cravings to continue, but I stopped. Simply stopped. I hadn't felt arousal, but I only felt terrible cravings for going on. However, I just couldn't. The thought of resetting my counter after so many days kept me from anything that would lead me to taking a conscious look at any porn.
    However, I couldn't stop thinking whether I really should reset my counter and it was really blocking my mind. Yeah, the counter helps, but also can be a nuisance.
    So, I haven't reset it. I saw a manga picture, I walked into a trap unconsciously set be myself, but I stopped immediately before going for more. If I had looked explicitly at the nude picture, I'd have reset. But as you can see, and most people would probably agree, my counter is happily going forward. I saw something, but I did not fall for it. Heck, in comparison with you, my mistake was worse, so don't even think about resetting that beautiful number :)
    Still, I feel bad... and it's stupid since it was more like a victory.
