Realize that smoking is just a habit, and a habit can be changed
How you think about smoking is critical to your success in quitting. Notice the way you think and talk about quitting, because these are clues to your obstacles and your pathway to success. You can start changing the way you think and talk about quitting even before you do anything else. For example, say "I am going to quit smoking" rather than "I am going to try to quit smoking".
