Hello happy2quit - we are so glad you joined us here online, and congratulations on being quit 5 weeks! WOW!
Sound like although you were not planning on quitting, its proving to be exactly what you were meant to be doing at this point in your life.
Withdrawal can involve a long list of symptoms - including the ones you mentioned like difficulty concentrating and feeling lightheaded. Your body is going through alot right now, and its working really hard on getting well. This is part of the healing process, and may involve more sleep or taking daily tasks a bit more gently.
Of course, if you concerns about any of your symptoms, reach out to a health care professional to discuss, and let them know you quit smoking.
Hoping the coming days and weeks ahead have you feeling you better.
All the best and keep up the all your great work!
