Congratulations on getting back on track with your quit!
Slips can be a part of the process to quitting (as you already wisely mentioned in your post) but it is more about the amount of times you get back up, not how many times you fall (never quit quitting as you put it!).
You sound like a very strong and determined person with your 10 years recovered from another addiction, and as you mentioned, there are definitely parallels to quitting other substances and quitting smoking. Also, good for you to set up boundaries to help protect you and your quit, and for expressing how important it is for you to quit.
Keep up the great work, we are here to help support you along the way, both on these forums, and with phone support through Smokers' Helpline if you need it- 1 877 513 5333.
