At what point did others stop missing smoking?

I wake up wishing I could have a cigarette. I go to bed wanting a cigarette. I eat, and as soon as I am done, I think about smoking. I get in my car and I think about lighting up. Essentially, everything I do makes me think about missing smoking. Don't get me wrong- I am committed to quitting and have not smoked in 31/2 weeks! I just think knowing that these feelings and thoughts will go away eventually, would make this easier. Is this wrong to still feel so obsessed after several weeks??? I know I smoked for a very long time (35 yrs) so I get that it has been part of who I am for as long as I can remember, but i need some reassurance that eventually I can go about my day without this empty feeling. Elders- please share some insight. Thanks! Cathy
