I have heard of this! I have quit for 22 years almost, Sept. 9th.
And very rarely do I have still have urges to smoke, but I still do. When I do they are less and less. They don't stay long and they are more of just a thought then a physical symptom. You can do this. I'm so proud of you for quitting as along as you did. Keep at it and work through the urges, they lessen, I promise.
