Hi there. I created this group for us spouses and significant others who are on the receiving end of withdrawal from our loved one. My husband quit cold turkey about 6 weeks ago and I am so proud of how good he has been doing. The process hasn't been easy for either one of us. I don't pretend to know what he is going through, but I need someone to understand what I have gone through. Right now we are struggling with the smell of smoke in the house and on him...still! It's been over a month and he just reeks of smoke sometimes...has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions? How long before all the toxins leave his body?? He has rewashed all of his clothes and he works in his home office, which was the site of many a smoke, but the smell still sneaks in.
I welcome anyone to this site who needs a friend to listen and understand. I look forward to hearing other people's stories and struggles
