Not uncommon after: Quitting smoking for people to have second (and third) thoughts about it, to feel anxious and irritable. If you quit cold turkey, and are having severe withdrawal symptoms or cravings, consider nicotine replacement therapy with lozenges, gum or patches. If you are not in a smoking cessation program, strongly consider taking part in one - the support and suggestions can help a great deal.Congrats.
