I believe a big part of quitting smoking is a restlessness

When we sleep, we dream and often physically move acting out with body motions.
We are trying to get through the situation in our dream, escape it and find resolution.
Being smokers who have quit smoking, there is bound to be a restlessness when we get the urge to repeat the motions of something we’ve done so many times before.
Because smoking is so mindless and repetitious the thoughts of doing it are bound to hang on awhile.
When you get the urge to smoke early on and through no mans land, think of it like the tossing and turning we do in our dreams. We work through things in our dreams while we are unconscious.

The restlessness of missing smoking will dissipate. It takes time
Nobody ever died from dreaming. Nobody ever died from quitting smoking.
Don’t let thoughts of smoking build up.  Say “I don’t do that anymore” as soon as you get the urge to smoke. Say it out loud. Say it over and over. That phrase affirms your choice to quit smoking and moves you away from the restlessness and points your head back to your goal..

Stay willing and know it will get better.
Don’t give up on you.    The only way out is through
