I'm a little nervous to quit on Feb 1s . I really want to, but I just don't know how I'll get through the urges.
You gotta have a quit plan? And a quit kit. Pack your quit lit with everything and anything you think can help. Water, books, load games on your phone, gum, coloring books, candy suckers, my ho to was tootsie pops. Get phone numbers of friends who you can call anytime you need up talk to some one. Be sure to come here and read everything. Lots of good stuff.

You just have to reach out. We're here for you.
You can do it. Stay in the moment. Remind yourself that urges only last 3-5 minutes. Sing, dance, candy crush, meditation, text your support squad, and remember, you are already changing because you're here. Don't be afraid to try or fail, you can try again and we will too.
I prepared for cravings/urges by making a list of things I was willing to do rather than smoke. The list contained things I knew I would do--it was things I liked to do, or loved to do, or was willing. The urges came, mostly at the start-- a handful of days. I did the things I promised myself I would do--one day at a time. It was enough to deal with the day rather than looking ahead and worry about tomorrow, the next day, the next week.
Prepare by planning, reading, learning. Blog here as much as you want to. Quitting is doable, fear is normal, but lean on all the wisdom here at Ex. This is your quit community now. Here for you one day at a time.
