Staying quit can be challenging at first but it gets much easier over time.
In the first two to four weeks most people experience strong cravings and need to put in daily work to stay quit.
For most people withdrawal symptoms (such as irritability, sleep disruption, cravings) will have subsided after the first few weeks and most people start to enjoy whole days free of cravings or thoughts of smoking. After a month or so you may still get the odd craving from time to time, especially when you find yourself in situations where you used to smoke. The ideas here can help you stay on track.
