Any time you quit is good. The pacer is metal, it doesn't care if you smoke.

Yes, there is pure oxygen around recovery rooms. Smoking is strictly prohibited.

Yes, there is a difference. If you say that you're going to wait until tomorrow, well, tomorrow never comes. This is a truism of any addiction. My FIL fought your battle for years. His "tomorrows" included at least two heart attacks and two bypass surgeries. Sorry but that's the way it is.

Gave up smoking long ago twice. Quit alcohol 33 years ago.  Smoking was by far most difficult.  

you're very welcome
