Just quit.. Help.

Hey everyone.

I am on my second day of giving up smoking. I've gone cold turkey, because my children raised their concerns. They asked me if I'd stop for them, so I did. I have tried to quit 3 times in the past, and failed within an hour on each. So I can't believe I've gone this long. From 40 smokes a day, to none!
I was fine yesterday, and half of today. Now I'm feeling the craving move up more. I've found things to do, and these lemon drops I suck on, but the cravings still linger. I've just lost 25-30kgs and with hard work. So I refuse to eat food to stop the cravings. Has anyone tried nicorette gums or filters that you suck. Patches give me nightmares. Lol! Thanks!
