When does it get easier

I'm wondering when the withdrawals stop or at least decrease in intensity.  I smoked for 30 years and quit 14 days ago. I was able to quit using Chantix. I have so many triggers and I am miserable thinking about smoking constantly.  Just wondering when it gets easier. On the bright side, I do feel physically better. The aches and heaviness in my lower legs has went away.  That's one of the reasons I decided to quit because I think my circulation in my legs was worsening and my lung function was also declining. I'm taking the stairs at work and my breathing has greatly improved in just 2 weeks! I try to remind myself of the benefits of not smoking but it really gets difficult sometimes.
