If you slip

If you slip and smoke a cigarette after you quit, don’t give up! You’re not the only one who has ever done this, and it doesn’t mean you’ve failed.

Just don’t have another cigarette. Remind yourself about the reasons you want to quit and talk to a friend or counselor. Keep moving forward with your plan to quit.
