    Me too! Not lately, but for a long time I could smell bonfires, especially at night.

    Yes!  I get periods of time where I smell cigarette smoke and no one in my house has ever smoked.  It can last for a week or two and then just goes away.  Then I can go for months before it occurs again.  This has been going on for the past few years.  Had ct scan of head and sinuses and all normal.  Another weird menopause thing!

    That's funny you say that. I smelled smoke when i was getting a Rolfing session done once, which is a form of very deep tissue massage to help realign the fascia. They say your body can hold onto and store pain, emotions and memories. I told him I could smell smoke, and he was baffled. That was years ago, though long before I ever started this peri hell stuff.

    It's possible that the body is just releasing things or toxins stored in it. I did alot of clubbing with my bff in my younger days, maybe that was why lol.

    I have also heard that old injuries and illnesses can resurface in peri.

    Write anytime, we're all in the same boat here!

    I have been getting the cigarette smoke smell for a couple of years off and on and it drives me nuts! No one in my phone smokes either. I made the mistake of googling it recently and read about all kinds of scary crap. I’m thinking that if it was something awful I would of had other symptoms by now. I’m glad I’m not alone  though. Thank you all for sharing your experiencessmile
