 It has been one hour at a time for me also early in my quits. But I've found that if I can hang on, fight each craving by using distractions, that they do let up.

Everyday the cravings and urges get a little less intense and a little further apart. They don't go away altogether for months, but you will notice that you can handle them a lot easier.  You can do this!

Good Luck!

Trying to take it one day at a time, had made it 5 days and then lit up again, i have been mostly quit all year though which is a positive thing, dont know why i keep slipping back though. I mean i kinda do know my triggers, well i found a cig today in the garage and i crushed it, so far so good gonna hit the bike trails a little to kill the time, enjoy the summer day.

Good for you! You'll get this thing whipped, I know you will. Distraction does wonders. I've been at work, eating all day. I'm on day 6 and I've been fine until today. I'm not sure what's happening, but its not good. Did anyone else get this? I've been so good lately, now I'm struggling.

Oh yeah, i just had made it 5 days and broke down yesterday and smoked 3 cigs, im going to try the twelve steps that have helped me stop drinking now for 2 months, admitted that we were powerless over smoking, that our lives had become unmanageable...

That sounds like a good idea. I have heard of people quitting that way, because they are both addictions. I'd be interested to see if you find success that way.
