It's common for people to use tobacco once in a while after quitting. Here are some ideas for getting back on track.
It's common to have a few slip-ups. Most people who quit tobacco try many times before they quit for good. Don't give up.
Plan what you'll do the next time you're in that situation.
Ask loved ones for help. Try a support group, a quit-tobacco app, or a quitline that provides counseling.
Avoid places where you can easily get tobacco. Don't buy any. If you're tempted to use tobacco, wait for the urge to pass.
Try to learn from past situations when you resisted temptation.
If you're not using medicine or nicotine replacement, think about trying it. Consider starting a quit-tobacco program or talking to a counselor trained to help people quit.
