Or, self respect?
This permission to smoke called a "slip" hurts your quit.
I liken it to putting holes in your armor.
Think about that one.
When people believe slips are ok,
They've already given themselves permission to smoke.
I quit many times and relapsed...I didn't call them slips because I was unfamiliar with that terminology. I always beat myself up so much when I started smoking again that my self hatred completely destroyed my self respect and each time, I had to start over and face my very disappointed family in addition to myself. I would never, ever want to do that again.
Every time I tried to quit before and failed, my self-respect went down the privy. I really found it hard to look at myself in the mirror for quite a while.
