Your Quit

Relapse… More Addicted Than Before


  1. To return to a former state.
  2. To become sicker after partial recovery from an illness.
  3. To recur. Used of an illness

The following post was recently shared on one of our Facebook Groups:

Relapse Post

“Again relapse after 15 days and more addicted than before today day 3 with nicotine, I want to quit again…too difficult.”

If you know anything about and it’s members, you know the sort of responses this post received. There was some ‘tough love‘. There was some name calling. There was, sadly, some coddling from folks who don’t quit ‘get it‘ themselves. But more than anything there we people responding from a place of caring because they understand what the original poster is going through… because we’ve all been there.

Response To Relapse

This was my response to this post:

15 days. Man, you were free. You were 100% nicotine free and you blew it. Now, when you start over, you’re going to need to go through all of that withdrawal all over again.

You’ve gotten some tough love here, some from truly bad ass quitters who know what it means to get and more importantly, STAY quit. They’re talking about strength of character cause, candidly you’ve not show it.
Is quitting easy? Not by a long shot. Is it doable, even for people for more addicted than you are?


So, here’s the bottom line. Have you made your decision to quit? Or are you ‘trying’ to quit? There’s a massive difference. It’s an important distinction to make. If you’ve decided, then you’ll have a different mindset. That mindset won’t allow you to give in 15 days from now when you’re drunk and craving. That mindset, where dip is OFF THE TABLE is just different. The folks that have given you ‘tough love’ above get that. Cause that’s what they did.

We bust balls not to be dicks, but because we know what works. We know what works because we’ve been right where you are.

You CAN do it. But YOU have to do it. Decision time.
