    You won't, they aren't following cents, but more will get you banned

    Found this with a quick Google search

    I accidentally clicked on my own ads. Will this cause a problem for my account?

    Although publishers are not permitted to click on their own ads for any reason, we do understand that accidental clicks may occur. We therefore don't require that you contact us every time you click on your ads. Rest assured that your account is being properly credited for all clicks and impressions we consider to be valid.

    No. Accidents happen.

    If you clicked continuously many times then it was not an accident, you'll probably receive a warning.

    I see you are planning to do some fraud, with google adsense you will certainly get banned

    You "accidentally" clicked on your ad 6-7 times?

    Normally, if you click it once, that's not a problem. I've done it before, and my account is still alive and well. 6 to 7 times... Well... That certainly doesn't look like an accident, it looks like attempted click fraud.
