Congratulations on setting your quit date! That is a big step in this journey.
I think you bring up an interesting point when you mention keeping cigarettes around after you quit. I know I've certainly spoken with people who have found this helpful. On the other hand, I've spoken with a lot of people who found this to be a trigger for them.
For myself, it was best not to have any cigarettes accessible to me. If they were there, I would have smoked them. Not having any around gave me time to think about why I was craving and what I could do instead of lighting up.
It's a different experience for each person and everyone has their own strategies that work them.
Look forward to reading more about your quit!
All the best,
