Quitting IB role before getting a new job

I know it is never wise to quit your job before getting a new one but I am truly miserable in my IB role and would like to spend time finding the right buyside role. However, it is extremely hard to find and interview for jobs when you work 6 days a week and can't really leave your desk. Would it be a horrible move to quit before finding a new job? I would be comfortable being unemployed for 6 months if that's what it takes.
