Hi Michaela, That was the hardest part of my quit too; that missing in the morning and at night especially. Sometimes it felt like it would never get better but it did and will get much much better for you in time. Here is a blurb from article below:
Thank you, ModMarge. I did read it. I read a lot on this forum and this help me stay in the right mindset.

How are you doing, Michaela ? Thinking about you, Hope you are well.
Hi, Brenda. I was thinking about you also.
Yesterday I tried to stop nicorette gum, but I think I did it suddenly and was not good. I will try again in another manner.
I can say I am good with no desire to smoke.
One month 5 days smoke free
You’ve got this! Keep looking forward. You do not want to start all over again on day one. That is the worst day by far. I know you still feel like somebody has taken over your mind,body and soul but it is just your receptors screaming for nicotine. They will shut down but it will take time. Breathe and distract.
All the best.
Smoke free 19 months. It is true peace and freedom.
You do not want to start all over again on day one
So true. This is what I keep telling my self over and over. One day on this group we will talk about other things than cravings. I am looking forward to that day. Peace is all I want. And I can tell you that there are days I am already happy with my self, happy that I breath better and I am healthy.
Proud that I am smoke free.
Alright, alright, alright. Someone else also got an app. Pretty encouraging for me. Especially the money saved and life regained. It's going to add up quick. Brag about it to your family and friends that support you. That helps too. I'm going on 23d, 8h, and 39 min. Says I saved $221.93 but I know it's more than that. Keep it up. Kick that cigs butt.
Oh good, I am so glad. If I don't see the cute cat with the cool sunglasses, I get worried. So happy you are doing well and so proud of you.
How are you doing today, Brenda?
Today is hard. I am off nicorette gum and I feel out of my body. I slept hours and hours. I am afraid of what will be in the future, what if I will fail as I did last time. Lots of worries!
8 hours free of nicorette gum.
one month and one week smoke free.
