Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. Your symptom of excessive tiredness is most likely due to stopping smoking. Nicotine is a powerful stimulant. It can take up to 3 months to normalize and for you to begin to feel more energy. Exercising will help.
