"Quitting smoking is easy. I've done it a thousand times," Mark Twain is supposed to have said.
Maybe you can relate to this sentiment. Maybe you've tried to quit and then slipped up.
But that doesn't have to set you back to square one with smoking.
The difference between a slip and a relapse is within your control. You can either use the slip as an excuse to go back to smoking, or you can review what went wrong and renew your commitment to staying quit for good.
Yes, quitting takes hard work and a lot of effort, but you can do it.
Stronger next time
Remember, most people try several times before they finally quit smoking. Review what helped you and what seemed to work against you. Use that information to make an even stronger attempt next time.
