I'm glad my answer seems reasonable, it was a speculative one because as i said it is an unusual complaint. The feeling of being energized after training is very common and many people, including myself, can't sleep after training and that's why it's probably better to allow a few hours at least. I know from experience that training at 6pm means sleeping at 11 pm at the earliest, it's just too difficult to sleep any earlier. There are reasons for this, all related to how the body prepares for exercise, and it just takes time to 'wind down' after wards.
As for the smoking, if you are serious about quitting, I would speak to the GP again, and find out what he has available. These days there are many patches, gums, and other methods to gradually 'wean' you off the addiction. The other option is cold-turkey - just stopping but that's really not easy and so I would use whatever is available in the form of these gums and patches.
