Hi larvic,

According to this WebMD article on Quitting Smoking, "Symptoms of nicotine withdrawal are worst within the first week or so after you quit. They may last a few weeks. Some people crave cigarettes for months." Each person is different and there are medications and treatments that can definitely help you through the cravings.
