Trying to develop a query in SQL which finds the time frame between two dates with added criteria

Last Modified: 2021-04-21
Ok  I want to find the number of days between a cancellation and purchase without including repeat cancellations...

So if new customer then initial value for purchase history = A
If they looked at data put it in cart and no purchase = B
Purchase = C

So I want to get the following data from a pattern

new customer       A
1-Jan-14                     C
2-Jan-14                     B
3-Jan-14                     C
4-Jan-14                 C
5-Jan-14                     B
6-Jan-14                     C
7-Jan-14                     B
8-Jan-14                     B
9-Jan-14                     B
10-Jan-14                     C

So I would like to know the results of days between every instance of B if it follows a C or A. Without getting results for any B which follows a B.

IE the January 7 B had a C appointment three days later.
I would get no results from the Jan 8 or 9th B.
