Here are a few quotes and thoughts to keep in the back of your mind. Maybe one or two of these might be enough to keep you on your quit journey, or get you started on your quit journey.  Add to the list if you have any. 
Stay Strong! You CAN do this.

Every beginning is difficult, but it gets easier from there on. 

Quitting smoking is rather a marathon than a sprint. It is not a one-time attempt, but a longer effort.
You are as strong as you think you are, you can achieve things you think you can achieve, its all in your head.
Every failure can be considered as a tragedy or a chance to learn something. The latter is healthier.
How important is it really that you feel satisfied right now for 2 minutes, compared to getting yourself free from addiction forever?
Every time you try to quit smoking you are actually getting closer to staying smoke free.
The process of quitting smoking doesn’t end with the last cigarette. It’s not quitting itself, the real key is staying quit.
It’s all in your head, you have the power to make things seem hard or easy or even amusing. The choice is yours. 
The perfect day for quitting is not real. It will never come, so you might as well start today.
Make today count, so that you can look at it tomorrow and feel proud.
Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into but hard to get out of.
Every cigarette you smoke reduces your lifespan by eleven minutes. 
You've only got three choices in life: Give up, give in or give it all you've got!
The most exhilarating  achievement is breaking a bad habit.
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step.
Believe you can and you're half way there.
Will it be easy....nope. Worth it...ABSOLUTELY!!!
It's a process, it's a process, it's a process. Change takes time.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising up every time we fail. Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. Theodore Roosevelt

You can have anything you want, if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to accomplish if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose. Abraham Lincoln

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

Pope John XXIII

Not One Puff Ever
