Semi-conscious wet dream: Is it a relapse?

I’m really really confused at this moment and have been confused in the past month with this addiction from extreme anxiety from getting into the “am i doing this right?” kind of thing, and thing that are just complex. And my problem right now is that currently on day 5 as of today, i had a wet dream this morning but i get a very scary feeling because i felt that i was semi conscious..

Here is how it went: I kept waking up the past night like 6 times and falling back asleep and right before i woke up i was having these porn related experience in my dream and when i came it didnt do it by itself my body actually was rubbing my penis on the bed until i had an orgasm

OFCOURSE i would NEVER do this if i was conscious since as of now i’m COMPLETELY stopping PMO but i think i was a little conscious and i’m not sure wether or not i could have stopped it but i don’t i could. WTF is going on? Did you experience this? Is this considered a relapse? Please help..

First off congratulations on going 5 days! It sounds like you were not fully conscious when you brought yourself to orgasm so you really shouldn’t be too hard on yourself! Wet dreams and porn dreams are common experiences when recovering from a porn addiction (I personally didn’t experience them but MANY people do).

It’s up to you whether you want to consider this a relapse. If you feel like you consciously gave in, then go ahead and start over. Otherwise, just accept what happened and keep staying strong! A wet dream is not a relapse, and this seems pretty close to one. This seems more like your body going into autopilot mode when you were sleeping.

This just goes to show how wired your mind and body are to PMO. All the more reason to keep your streak going and stay clean!
