I'm 11 days into my quit and the craving never goes away. people say "oh i get like 4 cravings a day that last 1-5m"
it feels more like 1 big craving that lasts 24h to me. does this actually ever stop? possibly losing my mind.

We are all different. Are you taking deep breaths? They are very helpful for craving sensations. Drinking lots of water also helps. Make sure you are taking really good care of yourself. All of what you are experiencing will pass. Give it time. It takes time. Congratulations on quitting smoking.

I had what felt like constant cravings the 1st 2 weeks as well. But I did notice that the intesity of the cravings eased up, and, as long as I kept busy, I was able to ignore them. Remain committed and it will get easier.
