Slip-Up: a puff or a few cigarettes during your quit attempt.
Relapse: a return to smoking regularly.
Most people who try to quit have setbacks.
Setbacks are learning opportunities.
If you’ve had a slip-up (a puff or a few cigarettes during your quit attempt) it’s natural to feel bad but it’s also a warning to take seriously.
If you’ve relapsed (returned to smoking regularly) try quitting again when you feel ready.
A great strategy for recovering from a slip-up, or getting back on track after relapse, is to seek the support from Quitline or the QuitCoach .
