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."

"Don’t live your life in despair, feeling sorry for yourself because of the mistakes you have made. Let the sunshine in by doing the right things—now. It may be difficult to begin, but pick up the scriptures and immerse yourself in them. Look for favorite passages. Lean on the Master’s teachings, on His servants’ testimonies. Refresh your parched soul with the word of God. The scriptures will give you comfort and the strength to overcome. "
