After going 7-8 without PMO I fapped before going asleep. But instead of doing it to porn or a picture I thought about a real sexual encounter I had a couple years ago. Does fapping to memories count as as relapse?
Yes, if you are addict, and at rebooting. During the reboot, you must avoid not only P, but P substitutes, and sexual thought, as much as possible. This includes PMO, MO, and even O during sex. Why? Because those things give you a dopamine rush. You are not addicted to P even though we call it porn addiction. You are addicted to a dopamine rush. A big part of the reboot is desensitizing to all artificial sexual stimulation, by avoiding artificial sexual stimulation as much as possible.
