sounds to me like the only problem you have is that psychologically you continue to perceive cigarettes as a coping tool. if you were able to go 2 months, then obviously you were able to kick the physical addiction.
im currently trying to quit. i went 4 days without smokes and then caved today. i just tore up a pack of cigarettes because you know something, they didn't make me feel better.
i think to be successful one has to 1) find a way through the physical withdrawal and then 2) truly see cigarettes as a negative, not just from a health perspective but from a lifestyle and psychological perspective.

This time I am finding it really really hard. I have smoked about a pack a day for 10 years (started when I was 17) and I'm afraid I'll just keep trying and trying to quit but never be able to kick it for good. Any tips to get me through the bad cravings?
