Brief Answer:
ts withdrawal

Detailed Answer:
Hi
yes this is nicotine withdrawal
tiredness
malaise
myalgia
fatigue
discomfort
irritability
These are all features of withdrawal
I will suggest just hold on
These symptoms last almost a week to a fortnight
thereafter they start reducing
So if you manage to hold on for 15 days, you may manage to kick the habit
Best of luck
Stay motivated
