Tapered quit

I’ve been advised not to do this here.  That I will stay in withdrawal.  I’ve gone from 15 to 4 cigarettes in the past month.  I use the lozenges the rest of the time.  I was in the hospital for 10 days and didn’t feel any withdrawal and used very few lozenges.  Doesn’t our body get used to lower levels of nicotine over time?  I mostly feel fatigue, waves of heat and shaky.  I can barely get up in the morning.  During the day I have a lot of anxiety as I have a panic disorder. I’ve talked to my doctor as she is thrilled I’ve cut down so much.  Maybe I am not seeing this clearly, but if I’m getting some nicotine now, having it totally gone sounds like a worse nightmare.
