I used to be very stressed about cello; my teacher at the time was good for some things but wasn't really strong in areas that I needed help in. I enjoyed cello, but I wasnt working on anything that really gave me an apetite, so I wouldnt practice much, and then I would get really stressed out at my lessons. I started to make no progress.
I "quit" very briefly over last summer. But I would play and play the same pieces over and over again... I quickly got tired of that and decided I needed new pieces! I called up my sister in August and told her I had decided I wanted to take cello seriously and that I wanted a new teacher, she was like "I've waited for this day, I know who you have to see." I was sent off to met a potential new teacher, who turned out to be extremely motivating and chanlenging and in tune with how I was playing the cello. And since I've been with this new teacher everything has been falling into place.. (right now I have an injury but besides that)
I dont know what your problem is exactly but after 3 years with one teacher maybe you might want to just try another teacher before you quit for good.
