Now that I've quit smoking...

I guess this is something of a follow-up to my last question:
I haven't had a cigarette in about 7 days. Nor have I ingested nicotine from any other source.

I'm not really having any cravings and I certainly don't have any desire to smoke (the thought of it kind of makes me sick. Even the smell makes my stomach churn a little). Nevertheless, I still feel crappy. I've been having trouble concentrating, feeling awake, and staying asleep. I also have this constant low-level headache. My skin feels kind of crawly, too.
I guess what I'd like to know is:
Was this similar to your experience of quitting smoking?
How long did it take for you to feel normal again?
I will feel normal again, right?
If it matters, I went from smoking close to two packs a day to not smoking at all, over night.
The good news is that the excessive irritability has almost entirely worn off. I'm hardly even grumpy anymore.
