Good question. I know my name's not Sarah, but she's not here at work yet ...
Feeling very tired is a common withdrawal symptom. Quitting takes energy because the body begins to heal as soon as one quits. It can also take a lot of mental energy to cope with cravings and to change the old habits and routines.
If you're able to get some extra rest, that can help. Naps, going to bed earlier, sleeping in if/when possible.
Withdrawal symptoms such as this typically lessen after the first week or two, thankfully.
Hope this helps,
