    Might I suggest an interesting book to read: Zen Guitar by Philip Toshio Sudo.

    It deals a lot with the "internal struggles" guitarists have, and why we do what we do. It really helped me in finding my way with guitars. (Although I mist confess, I was already into Zen. I might be a bit biased.)
    It's a thin book, and can probably be found cheap. It takes about two-three hours to read cover to cover, and a few days to think about. You loose a few hours, and might gain some benefits from it. Just seeing it on my shelf sometimes helps me when practicing.

    Everyone has good days and bad days. There's nothing wrong with giving it up if you just don't want to play anymore. But if your goal is to become "technical" you will have to play at least a couple hours every day. And real practice is not the same as playing. It's not fun. Nothing like that comes easily.
