By now you have been smoke free for over 3 weeks. Good for you! You have every reason to be proud of yourself! It's great that you are using the Quick Mist when needed. That is what is it there for, to help people get through this process. So I say, spritz away to keep your addiction at bay!
And as for missing going outside, I went through the same feelings at work when I first quit. But that was just another change in my routine for me to get used to. Like Emily said, maybe you can go out for a quick walk. Or alternately, go out for a walk at lunch time to enjoy the air. Just avoid your smoker friends for a while, because it is all too easy to fall back into old habits.
Have you noticed an improvement in your breathing yet? Are you finding that you can climb stairs without your heart beating out of your chest? I remember quickly climbing a few flights of stairs and dashing onto the streetcar. It was only after I sat down that I realized I wasn't huffing and puffing, and it made me feel really good. That's just one of the many benefits you will realize as a non-smoker. Enjoy!
