Does masturbation without orgasm count as relapse?

#1

Today I didn’t control myself and saw some porn and masturbated, however about halfway through I realized what I was doing and stopped right away. Should I reset the streak?

Even though you didn’t orgasm, you still watched porn and masturbated to it, so yeah I would count it as relapse unfortunately.

Here’s why:
By doing what you doing your remind your mind and body about your old, bad habits. Old, fading neural pathways are being reactivated and you slowly bring back your old self.

Recovery should be cold turkey with no excuses/exceptions.

I browsed girls photos via web search today and caused bringing porn&fapping me. Photos led relapse and binging with nsfw images. I resetted my streak even tho I had to lose my 12 days streak. Harsh, but this is the only way to get out of this addiction.
