Amazing Detox Incident
Posted by: banJoe ()

I've been raw vegan for 12 days & I've been experiencing quite a bit of the normal detox maladies though at times they are rather acute and/or gross.

Until yesterday afternoon. As I was preparing for work, I noticed the tip of one of my fingers was a bit orange in color. Didn't think too much of it but while I was working I kept smelling cigarette smoke odors. Which is VERY odd because I haven't smoked for TEN years and every place I deliver to is non smoking. It was so bad at one point that I was sniffing & digging all around the cab of my truck to see if someone hid some old cigarette butts in there. Nothing. Around mid shift, I washed up and saw that 2 of my fingers were very orangish-yellow, so I did what any guy would do. I sniffed them. PEEEUUWW!! Cigarette smoke!!

I had smoked for 23 years but quit TEN (10!) years ago. But now, after finally going raw, my system has a chance to purge that stuff out. Amazing!!

I'm a believer!!
(yes, I tried to wash/scrub the stench away, it only returns w/in 30 minutes)

Down some lemon water. Using the lemon peel on your hands may also help some..
