Tips for Slips and Relapses
Slips and relapses are not failures, but rather opportunities to learn what works for you and what does not. It usually takes many times before someone quits for good. A slip is having one or two cigarettes while trying to quit. A relapse is when you go back to regular smoking. Remember that both are temporary setbacks - but common parts of the quitting journey.
It's completely natural to experience mood changes when you decide to quit. Understanding why this happens can help you navigate your journey with greater ease.
