My Quit:
When I quit, the thought of going ONE DAY smoke-free scared me. I couldn't imagine my life without cigarettes. I tried to remember what it was like to not feel full after eating and needing a smoke, or what it was like to drive and not smoke...or what I did when I was bored....or drinking. How was I going to make it, if I couldn't even remember what it was like to not smoke? That's when I started getting sick. I started developing a problem with my tonsils swelling up, and I would be sick for about a week. Each time I would tell myself I was going to quit. I got sick again. This time though, I woke up not being able to breathe because my throat was so swollen. I promised myself I would take it one day at a time. It has been 3 months today!

Advice:
You may want a smoke every day, but say "I'm not going to smoke for just today." You must have faith in yourself as well.

photoJust Don't Smoke, do whatever you have to do to protect your quit. Visit the Q often and realise that nothing worth having is easy, and this IS worth having.
