If you relapse

If you start smoking again, try quitting again. Each time you try, you are more likely to quit for good.

Take some time to think about what happened:

Look at your quit plan and make changes. Then pick a new quit date and try again. Your friends, healthcare providers, and the counselors at the Massachusetts Smokers’ Helpline will keep supporting you for as many tries as it takes.

You CAN quit smoking!
