When smokers try to quit it takes an average of 3 to 4 times to quit properly and stay off the smokes for good. You might fall off the wagon, but the important thing is that you get back on.
Things like stress and sadness can make us start smoking again after we have quit. Having too much to drink makes a lot of people feel like having a smoke, often long after they have quit.
Remember, we are much more likely to quit and stay off the smokes for good if we have support. Only 4 people in every 100 that try to quit on their own without support make it through.
There is no shame in getting help. Getting help gives you the best chance of quitting and staying quit for good.
Without support the danger of relapse is much higher. Get some help before you quit and if you relapse – it will make your quitting journey much easier.
