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."

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "
