I do wish you all the Luck in the world! I know first hand how hard it can be! At one time in my life I smoked a couple of packs a day, but that was a long long time ago, I quit cold turkey, but I never would say I quit smoking till after I went a full year without having one! Several years later I took up dipping, and believe it or not that was harder to quit than smoking was, "just a pinch between the cheek and gum" you are main lining nicotine right through your gums into your blood system. after a few years I finally quit that too! Just take one day at a time! And I for one will support you every step of the way!
Good Luck to You and I do wish you success!
