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."

" Is it possible to reclaim a life that through reckless abandon has become so strewn with garbage that it appears that the person is unforgivable? Or what about the one who is making an honest effort but has fallen back into sin so many times that he feels that there is no possible way to break the seemingly endless pattern? Or what about the person who has changed his life but just can't forgive himself?The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us. His Atonement is infinite. It applies to everyone, even you. It can clean, reclaim, and sanctify even you. That is what infinite means—total, complete, all, forever. "
