How long do the physical withdrawl symptoms last after you quit smoking. I am extremely emotional and very easy to cry. Can't stand it & have to go to work. I can hang in there if I know when the end is.
Jonathan Foulds, PhD replied to baylieandme's response:
Most of the nicotine withdrawal symptoms are psychological (like feeling very irritable) rather than physical (e.g. people generally don't get the sweats, or headaches when they quit smoking). But that doesn't make the withdrawal symptoms any less real.

The symptoms that we know are due to nicotine withdrawal are: irritability (impatience), poor concentration, restlessness, anxiety, depressed mood, increased appetite/hunger, difficulty staying asleep, and craving for a cigarette.

These symptoms peak in the first few days/week and have generally returned to normal within 2-4 weeks after quitting smoking. So it is important to know that the mood swings are temporary and you will soon be feeling much better.
