Well im in Arkansas it its finally freezing temps now, lately it's been around 40-55 degrees. Now we have snow so that always means I get sick. And sure enough I'm sick. Which is a bad thing but a good thing too, I cannot smoke while sick. It makes my throat hurt worse. I've has 2 cigs today. When normally I would have smoked half a pack already I've had the same pack for 3 days. Still Got half in there. Slowly but I'm trying!

Use this as the springboard you need to launch you into the new smoke free you! It's be shown that if you smoke under 10 cigs a day it is MUCH easier to quit. Even a week of that reduced intake gives you better chances of success!

Just do it
You are young, you haven't smoked all your adult life, You have many years to live, don't cut out your friends that smoke. Do you have a Dobe or dog in your life? Think of them, my Dobe comes out of the bedroom and sneezes, from 2nd hand smoke, enough for mr 2 quit

AND luckily, I spent Christmas with friends who had a 4 year old with a full blown green snot cold--she gave it to me. Must have been a new and particularly virulent cold because I was so sick with it for nearly six weeks that I didn't even want to smoke. And I've always ended up with bronchitis after any cold and with the bronchitis after this one I was still hacking my lungs up months after the actual cold. By the time I'd stopped coughing, gotten rid of the bronchitis it occurred to me that since I'd gone over four months without smoking that it was a perfect time to actually quit permanently.
I didn't go into a bar or restaurant that served liquor for nearly three years--the association was too strong--booze--YEAH! grab a cigarette. (Wasn't quite as bad as a friend who quite smoking after he retired from the military after 20 years and a three pack a day habit--he'd been out and a non-smoker for 10 years when we worked together and told me the first thing he STILL did in the morning when he woke up was reach for a cigaretter. Even though there hadn't been one on his night stand in over 10 years.)
I also quit hanging out around people who smoked.
I took up doodling on scratch paper, napkins etc to have something to do with my hands.
I gained weight and still fight that.
But I mostly quit coughing. I don't get as many colds. My clothes don't stink like smoke. And I see from the signs around here that cigarettes are now, on sale, at around $5 a package for my chosen brand. My Scots forebearers are now quiet in their graves since I'm not blowing (umm how much would it be?) around $1,700 a year in smoke.
OP--move out--visit the smoking parents in restaurants that don't allow smoking. Ditch the fiance' if he won't quit with you--Vivienne's right--you'll fight endlessly about it if you quit and he doesn't.
And good luck!
