Plateaus

Are there times when your body just refuses to adapt as it was doing to the lowering of nicotine?  When I was smoking, I dropped from over a pack a day to 15 relatively easy.  When I started my gradual quit, I dropped to 4 cigs and lozenges to equal the equivalent and that worked for a few weeks.  Now I have dropped to 3 cigs, sometimes less, and it’s like the withdrawl went into overdrive.  I get the sweaty feeling intensely.  Memory is shot. Don’t want to eat.  Even when I have a half cig it doesn’t stop or slow it down.  Only a lozenge will make it somewhat bearable.  This is a 1mg drop spread thru the day as I don’t smoke whole cigs ever, just a couple drags here and there and I was forgetting one which brought the allotment down.  One measly milligram can do this?
