Hi Dondada20,

Congratulations on quitting.  Things get gradually better after the first 3-4 days.  You'll start noticing a difference shortly if you haven't already.  By this time next week the physical withdrawals should be just about over.

Keep posting and let us know how you're doing.  Things are a bit slow here these days so you'll have to be patient waiting for a response.
