Welcome to the community and a big 'WOOHOO' to you for taking the step to quit smoking.
The patch/lonzenges are great, but they deliver a steady lower dose of nicotine. For those crawling up the wall cravings try using the mist - it isn't cheap but is does give you a quick come down from those cravings.
I also drank lots and lot of water. Then there was the small snacks to keep my hand s and mouth busy - Nibs, gum, healthy pea chips, oranges.
First few days are totally disorienting - you want to smoke, you are used to smoking, and what exactly do you do if you are not smoking?
Focus on a picture of your kids - that is your motivator for today. You know that they can smell the smoke on you and all your belongings so there is no hiding it. One of the first things I noticed after quitting was my smell returned real fast and I could pick out someone who smoked from 10 feet away.
Take a deep breath, you can do this. One day at a time.
