8 months clean and feeling bored and irritable. Will it get better?

Hi everyone. I’m almost 9 months clean off of migraine pain pills and quit smoking cigarettes the same day. It’s been a heck of a journey. I felt awful physically and mentally, then good, then not , etc. lately I’ve been feeling very bored even when I’m busy or doing something fun. Although I rationally know I feel better, I think about pills and cigarettes all day long and my brain tells me I’ll “have fun” if I just have one of each. Has anyone experienced this boredom feeling and if so will it get better? I’m also extremely sensitive to noise and loud talking all of a sudden
