I felt horrible for 2 1/2 months physically and mentally ... help

I quit smoking cold turkey 2 1/2 months ago.  My entire body felt like it was dipped into novocaine and I was aggravated, arguing with my wife constantly, being mean and overly sensitive. 

Starting Wellbutrin, almost 2 months in, helped a bit with the physical symptoms, but the aggravation would not stop. 

Three days ago I bought a pack and started smoking 4-5  cigarettes a day and besides the guilt, disappointment, and health worries ... I feel better. 


I don't want to smoke again, but I don't want to be so darn aggravated and on edge anymore either.  It's not a lack of self-discipline - these feelings were so powerful, overwhelming and horrible.  Plus the absolute exhaustion, despite sleeping 9-10 h a night... just not normal!


I quit before but never had these horrible side effects! I usually had so much energy that I had to go on long hikes every day and any physical symptoms stopped after 3 days ... this time is for some reason is the complete opposite.


Any advise would be appreciated.


Thank you
