Hi welcome to ehealth forum, I have read your query and would like to help;

First of all I congratulate you on quitting smoking this is one of the major milestones towards your healthier lifestyle. 24 hours after your last cigarette your chances of having a heart attack have already decreased. You’ll start to breath more easily within 3 days!
Several herbal teas and foods can detoxify lungs like onions, garlic, ginger, green tea, lentils etc. I’ll give a quick recipe.
Boil 1 litre of water in a pot and add ginger root and onions and 2 tablespoons of turmeric and let them boil then add honey to enhance taste and drink it twice a day.
Best wishes,
Dr. Khalil
