What is in tobacco?
What if I slip?
Isn't tobacco use just a habit?
Why do I need outside help?
What if I'm not ready?
What if I enjoy tobacco?
What if I slip?
There is a difference between a "slip" and a "relapse". A slip is when you may smoke a few cigarettes or use smokeless tobacco a few times in a short period, but return to your no-tobacco status.

A relapse is when you go back to your "pre-quit" amount and stay there! Most relapses occur within the first two weeks to three months after a quit date.

If you slip or relapse, you have not failed. You're a step ahead. The average person attempts to quit at least five times. Each attempt to quit should be considered a SUCCESS.

  • If you slip, learn from it. Stop Again


  • This was a mistake, not a failure


  • Set a new quit date and get back on track


  • Remember your reasons for quitting and the benefits you had when not using tobacco
