Question about slip

I'm not sure what to call what happened in the middle of the night last night. I'm either at 1 week or Day 0. I'm going to email my counselor too, but I'd love to hear what you all think. Maybe I already know the answer.

So, I woke up in the middle of the night and started to mb. I'm not sure I was fully awake. I eventually was awake enough and got my head in the game enough to stop (which is an amazing achievement either way). I guess I'm just still wondering if I stopped soon enough. If this had been the middle of the day I would say it was clearly a slip. Being the middle of the night makes me wonder how much slack to cut myself. I don't want to be too hard on myself or too easy.

Any and all opinions are welcome.

"I do not view it as a slip up unless you went all the way to climax, which is the real addiction for me at least. Now if this was a continual issue, I would be more concerned."

"I agree with RachP. I wouldn't count it a slip unless you went all the way. It's not like my slip with p~rnography. Even just looking with that is enough to be a slip, but starting with m~sturbation and not following through isn't actually doing it. I think you're safe."
