Good to see you are still working towards your quit date.
Trying to wean off cigarettes by reducing the amount smoked can be hard as you are fighting not only your body's physical need for nicotine, but also that long ingrained habit.
Use the next week to mentally prepare yourself and get a Quit Kit ready for your big day - The day you become a non-smoker.
A Quit Kit can include any NRT's you might be planning on using, extra bottled water, gums, snacks, note pads (to write out inspirations, reasons you quit, reminders, etc), whatever else you might need.
The one thing I see repeatedly on this site is that we all want to quit and be free of this terrible addiction, and that it takes work and effort to do it. You just need to be committed.
When your quit date comes, have that last cigarette, throw out everything smoking related and focus on your new life being a non-smoker.
The one thing I was amazed by with my quit was how quickly I started to notice some of the physical improvements. Within a week or so I was breathing better, my cough was going away, I started to actually smell and taste things better. All that stuff everyone was saying was so true!
You can do it.
