3 months and mood swings are worse

im really suffering from anxiety after 3 months no smoking,ive been anxious for the last 2 months but 1 month ago it spilt over and ive been having awful mood swings,panic attacks,tears.

strange thing is i dont actually think im depressed (i know that feeling) as i can be very happy within the same day.

has anyone else experienced this?

other than medication what can be done for it?

how long does it take to pass this phase for most people?

im deseperate please help
