Good morning everyone!
We all know it takes willpower to quit but most challenging is maintaining it. I like how you, Atp never gave up trying to and look at where you are now almost 4 months!
Having a slip now is common but don't give up- try a new way of dealing with the cause of your slip and don't focus on the slips.
Asking yourself, "Was that worth it, what can I do differently next time?". Most relapses occur as a result of negative self-talk or you tell yourself something that gives you permission to return to the comfortable, old habit.
When you are on the verge of slipping try this:
-Do something- go for walk, the craving will go away.
-Phone your buddy!
-Review your reasons for quitting.
-Remind yourself, "You're a Non-Smoker".
