The struggle to quit involves testing us with the physical withdrawal - sleeplessness, headaches, irritation, nausea, dry mouth, hunger, loss of focus - those things i experienced, as have most others. That is your body screaming out for nicotine. In a few days that will peak and then start to pass. Be strong and ride it out. The rewards are fantastic - smell better, feel better, realize you can breath again and walk stairs without having your heart exploding in your chest, the money you save...
Those first few days I munched through a bunch of bags of Nibs and rice cookies.
A also got in the habit of making oatmeal in the morning - steel cut type that you have to cook for half and hour. Keeps you focused and occupied instead of missing those morning smokes and the oatmeal fills you up.
