If you have tried to quit smoking or quit vaping and failed before, take comfort in the fact that most people fail several times before quitting successfully. Your past failures are not a lesson that you are unable to quit. Instead, view them as part of the normal journey toward becoming a nonsmoker.
For most tobacco users, tobacco cravings or urges to smoke can be powerful. But you’re not at the mercy of these cravings.
When an urge to use tobacco strikes, remember that although it may be intense, it will probably pass within five to 10 minutes whether or not you smoke a cigarette or take a dip of chewing tobacco. Each time you resist a tobacco craving, you’re one step closer to stopping tobacco use for good.
