So I’ve jumped onto YouTube and searched up things like butts and boobs and allowed it to load up on the screen but after seeing the pictures I get a grip on myself and close it down immediately. I consider this as edging but at what point is it a relapse? I’ve done this several times all with the same outcome. I know my goal is to stop porn and masturbating for good. So do I count those as relapses even though I’ve immediately closed out of it without watching a video? Do I count it as a relapse because my intention was to actually view and masturbate at first? Should I count it as a relapse because I’ve done it more than once?
@Sensh1nSeeker I think it’s a relapse if you follow all the way through to the orgasm. If you don’t have an orgasm but feel guilty it’s up to you to reset the counter or not.
I seem to do okay 1week at a time but then I give in. I stay PMO free for days and then I feel like the pressure or urge lasts all day. I hate feeling like this all day. To me as long as you don’t have an orgasm you shouldn’t have to reset your counter.
I like this question and think it’s really good one.
I edged often to start with. I also relapsed as I felt the edging went that little bit further each time.
But your relapse point has got to be a point that only you are happy to set for yourself.
It also has to be realistic and a point still under your control.
Hope this helps
