Quitting again today

Well......I have one cigarette left......going to go smoke it now & that's the end of that. I get paid on Thursday & plan on keeping my $50 instead of buying another packet. I have been here before and it worked for 4 months but eventually caved in from stress. Silly really, I know the stress will still be there even if you have a cigarette. The difference is you are just stressed with less money and unhealthy which makes more stress not less. I've smoked since the age of 16 and am now 45, recently have been waking during the night coughing and spluttering & unable to breath clearly. I've never been a heavy smoker but smoking is smoking and still effecting my health so I'm done. I want to be able to go for my walks with ease & breath freely again! I want to be able to swim in the river with the kids without nearly dying through lack of breath. It's the worst feeling. So here I go again...... wish me luck :)
