Sleep Problems After Quitting

Have any of you experienced serious sleep challenges after quitting? I’m just shy of two weeks into my quit. I’m NOT using the patch, Chantix, or any other med known to interfere with sleep. I am using the lozenge, but most days I only use two with the second one coming after lunch. 

 

For three nights now, I’ve fallen asleep just fine, and then wake up 30 minutes to an hour later.  That pattern continues for the rest of the night, sleeping an hour and then waking up again. If I’m really lucky,  i’ll sleep two straight hours at least one time during the night.  Finally, around 4 AM, I give up and just stay up. I am EXHAUSTED.  I need to fix this somehow, or I’m worried it could lead to a slip. I'm not young enough to go without sleep like this and still manage to work full time. 

 

 If you’ve had a similar experience, what did you do that helped?  Is this a quit-related thing that will end soon? What do you guys think?
