    Day 6 - headache all day?????

    No nips KW!!!!
    This happened to me too, cannot remember exactly what day it was but it wasnt right at the beginning. It is probably all the toxins leaving your body. This takes time. To help it along drink lots and lots of water. Eat well and lightly, give your bod all the help it needs to recover. If it gets really bad take a mild painkiller, but eat a little first.
    You'll be fine, you are doing great!

    Day 6 - headache all day?????

    If you stick to your guns and remain AF, there will be all SORTS of aches and pains and annoyances that will arise, and you will have thoughts such as "maybe a nip..." What do you think the outcome might be if you listened seriously to those thoughts?

    Be strong. It's just a headache. Take an aspirin or something.

    Day 6 - headache all day?????

    Hey Keep!

    I had headaches for quite awhile. I ended up going to my chiropractor for accupuncture. It seemed like a sinus issue for me. (I had quit smoking too)
    That seemed to work, but I still get some doozies sometimes and sometimes a mild one. I tend to not drink enough water which doesn't help.
    I'm learning it takes months to detox--hang in there, you're doing great. And if you decide you want some relief--I like Excedrin for headaches.:h

    Annoying as the headaches are, they will go away, as everone else here has said.
    They are only impemanent, and will fade away.
    When you look at the alternative, it is worth a little temporary discomfort to rid your body and mind of the poisons.
    Take care.
