Chopping and storing Garlic

You know how you can buy those pre-chopped/minced jars of garlic? Well I've used those for years as I stink at mincing garlic when I need it, and I hate how it leaves a smell on my hands and cutting board and so on. Well I am wanting to mince up a whole bunch and fill my own jar (one I kept from the ones I've emptied) and wonder if this is ok.
I wonder how long it will keep. I know those jars last about forever it seems...I've had one for up to two months when I haven't been cooking a lot. Would my own chopped up garlic not last as long? Do I need to add anything to it? The ingredients on the jars just say garlic...
