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
