What does it feel like to quit, or try to quit, smoking?

I have a friend who tries to stop smoking every few weeks. Each time, he tells me how great he feels about quitting and breathing and smelling things, and how much he doesn't miss the cigarettes - but then a day or two later he's smoking again. I asked him once what quitting felt like and what made it so hard. He tried to explain a bit but didn't really get down into it. I don't want to ask him again (especially since he's trying to quit right now) but I'm still very curious about what this experience has been like for other people. Thank you all in advance for helping me understand.
