Thinking on quitting...

I might give up Spanish (have been doing it for three years and a few months). What should I do?

Just have a few months rest from it - BUT decide when you're going return and stick to it!

I did that many years ago and my enthusiasm returned.

Agreed... but there are times when you can allow yourself a rest from it.

I would suggest giving it a break from now until the new year - as long as you do resume!

I'll never be American or British and that won't stop me from studying the language.

Tienes razón. But at what point does one "complete" learning a language?

A native speaker never stops learning his or her language. There is always something new to learn. There are ways to improve on what you think you've mastered.
Languages are ever-changing. There is no possible way to learn everything. You'll spend a lifetime trying to master your native tongue.
