Good to hear from you :)

I am glad to hear that you have quit smoking,good job 👍
In order to go for a detox program please consult a well trained dietician and nutritionist.However meanwhile you can add veggies,fruits,vegetable juice,coconut water,light soups to your diet.Please make sure that you do a detox only under the supervision of a diet professional and not by yourself. Take care

All the Best :)

Do a fruit and vegetable detox for 1-3 days. Only raw and uncooked foods. This helps in detoxification. Start with Vit. C rich fruits or up to 1000mcg in supplement form.
