How to Prevent Slips [ STEP 5 ]

Every quitter must deal with the risk of a slip sooner or later. This section tells you how.

Don't Let Tough Times Take You Back To Smoking

The highest risk times for new quitters are when they're feeling negative emotions including stress and boredom. These times should alert you to be on guard.

Don't Be Caught Off Guard

Anything could trigger the urge to smoke, so be prepared ahead of time by having a plan in place to avoid smoking. Remember — the urge to smoke will pass, whether you light up or not.

Recognize high-risk situations — remember H.A.L.T — and plan ahead for them

Hungry
Don't skip meals, have healthy snacks on hand.

Angry
Accept the anger, deal with your feelings and vent them safely. Discuss your feelings with a friend, take a walk, and breathe deeply.

Lonely
Call someone, visit a friend, and talk with a Quitline Specialist for support.

Tired
Take a nap, relax, enjoy a warm bath, pamper yourself.
