I have been trying to quit smoking for years now

I first started smoking when I was 14yrs old. I am 28 years old now. I have cut back a lot, but still haven't been able to stop completely. I am afraid of getting cancer, and dying at a young age. My Grandmother died of lung cancer in her fifties.

I have tried so many times but can't make it passed 5 or 7 days, until I break and have one. Then I am smoking again. This has been a re-occurring cycle since I was 18. I feel like my heart is becoming weakened, my Grandfather died of a heart attack in his fifties as well from smoking. Its scary because it runs in my family and its hard to stop.
