Sleeping problems after quitting

I had smoked about half a pack a day for 6 years. I quit smoking 4 months ago. I was getting dizzy and would get headaches after each cigarette. I feel like I became sensitive to the nicotine. When I first quit I slept a lot for about 2 weeks. After this the real problems began. I used to sleep about 8-9 hours a night my whole life. Now if sleep even 8.5 hours I get so dizzy and get that dirty feeling of sleeping too much and cant function. If i sleep less than 8 hours I feel tired all day. I am in a constant state of being tired from undersleeping or dizzy from oversleeping. Has anyone else had any similar symptoms and could maybe help me out. I am 28. Thanks.
