If You Slip Up

Oct 28, 2013 | Posted in Step 3: After You've Quit

If you slip up and have a cigarette or two, look at it as a learning experience You are still an exsmoker Don’t dwell on the situation, but ask yourself why it happened and do things differently next time. For example:

Were you simply tired and hungry?

Next time, don’t skip meals, and make sure you get enough sleep.

Were you having a drink with smokers?

Next time, if you drink, make sure there are no cigarettes around.

Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Just “re-quit” as soon as possible, and strengthen your will power in these ways: Read over your reasons for quitting. Repeat to yourself: “Smoking is not an option for me.” Avoid the situation that led to your puff.
