Help! This one isn't huge, but it sucks anyway.

I smoke at my computer... chain smoke at my computer actually. I am also a writer and write for online publications, so I need to be at my computer for a good 4-8 hours a day.
My quit date is October 16th, and have tried moving my ashtray away from the computer which seems to work a little bit, but it also frustrates me when I have a deadline to meet and I have to leave my desk every time I want to light up. I'm worried that the frustration might derail me, considering both my partner and my room mate smoke (my room mate smokes the same brand as me) so I have pretty easy access to cigs when I'm at home alone.
I've quit before, but I was working a brick and mortar job at the time, and it was easy to just not go into the smokers lounge on my breaks and that eliminated 8 hours of almost every day. This time is going to be difficult.
