Rather than quitting CS altogether, you might be better off quitting your current CS program for a more challenging program at a nationally recognized college. My experience was that CS was quite challenging, and my fellow students quite intelligent, so there is hope to find a program worthy of your knowledge and ability.

I agree with the poster who said that a degree was the white-collar equivalent of a union card, which is necessary to get a job at many sites no matter how good you were. If you want to work in CS, and particularly if you want the good jobs doing challenging work, you need a degree. You should also know that recruiters and hiring managers frequently know which colleges have good programs, and may sort your resume according to that knowledge, or they may ask questions that are only covered in good programs, and sort your resume by your ability to answer.

But be careful what you wish for. A good CS program will be harder. If you will just end up complaining on codeproject that the classes are too hard and there is too much homework, maybe you should drop out and open a gluten-free bakery or something.
