I was in the same boat as you. I "prepared" for quitting for one year, and each time my quit date would come and go. A snowstorm hit and I had only 1 cigarette, and a closet full of Nicorette, because I was preparing. So my quit date was unplanned, and I went for it, and I got committed because it had taken so much effort.
Now, I'm on day 473 and still going strong. Sure, smoking is and was part of what I did, not who I was. And now I have a new identity as a non-smoker, and it is fabulous, and has not always been easy, but sooooo worth it. Go for it! and good strength!
