30 Bananas a Day!

What's the best way to detox for someone who wants to give up smoking?

Hi everyone,

I'm not the smoker. This person who wants to give up smoking but keeps bringing themself in a vicious cycle is already vegan.

I know the best way is HCRV, but I'm wondering if maybe a transition via HCCV would be better as this person loves their noodles.

This person has expressed interest to try banana island, but is worried about withdrawal symptoms (headaches, mood swings, concentration problems) among others. I know it is also important for this person to eat at least 3000 calories. Although I can testify that HCRV gives better concentration and clarity!

Which do you find the best path?

Mono fruit island  --> HCRV

HCCV  --> Mono fruit island ---> HCRV

HCCV ---> HCRV ---> Mono fruit island ---> HCRV

It would be most helpful hearing from ex-smokers who have beat their addiction through this lifestyle.

Many thanks in advance. :)

I didnt beat the addiction through this but when i quit i read up on stuff that helps you detox consumed it and also what sort of nutrients a smoker might be deficient in and cranked that in. For me lots of water cranberry juiece bananas. The sooner the nicotine is out the better! I think it takes 72 hours for it to get out. Your system doesnt normalize however for about 2 weeks but in just 3 days those really intense wall climbing cravings should be gone sooner if you crank in good foods! its such a short period of pain for the lifetime of freedom from that death sentance!.

I wanna say vitamin B is osmething smokers are deficient in the nicotine causes you to loose it fast etc.. Any besides vitamin B is great for your nervous system and metabolism and well simply makes you feel good! Any sort of detoxing fruit / veggie and cranberry juice.

Tell this person to lay off the noodles for a few days! gotta get the system clean!

I never had headaches etc.. either keeping those nutrients up will keep the bad symptoms down. It wont help to much tho with the wall climbing cravings gotta fight that battle one crave at a time!

Thank you Jim Whit for your input. :)

If you don't mind me asking how long did it take you to defeat the habit for good? Did you have any relapses? If so, how did you get yourself to keep on going?

Yeah nicotine has a high niacin content which is important to your nervous system.  I found a link that lists the highest niacin sources after reviewing the entire nutrtional database.  Looks like the best are sun dried tomatoes and dried shiitake mushrooms.


Thank goodness there's a German online shop where you can by sun dried tomatoes without yucky salt. :)

I see people here using sun dried tomatoes for tomato sauce. A zucchini or cucumber noodle recipe with that and dried shiitake mushrooms wouldn't be a bad idea I think...

Thanks for the feedback Dennis. :)


Be part of something bigger than yourself, you know.  Acupuncture.  Nicotene Anonymous.  Two effective strategies to quit, even better combined.

He may be opened to acupuncture, but to NA I'm not sure. I'll talk with him about it...

Thanks for the feedback. :)

Now you can't be vegan 'cause... Mineral levels in plants are depleted. LifeRegenerator lacks sense

LifeRegenerator appears on RawKristina's video and repeats what an anti-vegan told me days before... that mineral levels in plant foods have depleted by 85 percent
