It's great to have you here on the site! I'm happy that you reached out with these important questions this morning.
Having a low mood or some mild depression can be a common withdrawal when quitting. The body goes through big changes and adjustments when going smoke free. For most people, the withdrawals improve over the first 2-4 weeks. However, if you have a history of depression or it feels strong, it may be good to check in with your health care provider for support.
As far as cravings go, that one is a little tougher to answer. It can vary for each person on how often the cravings happen and how long they last. It seems to be very individual. If you would like to have help with a quit plan or to find ways to help manage the cravings, please consider contacting your quitline by calling 1 866 366 3667.
Wishing you all the best,
