The benefits of quitting smoking

Regardless of how long a person has been smoking, the physical benefits of quitting smoking start immediately.

20 minutes after quitting:

Your blood pressure drops and your pulse normalizes

8 hours after quitting:

Carbon monoxide levels drop, oxygen levels return to normal.

24 hours after quitting:

Your heart attack risk starts to drop.

48 hours after quitting:

The chance of having a heart attack begins to decrease; taste and smell begin to improve.

72 hours after quitting:

Bronchial tubes relax, which makes breathing easier, and lung capacity increases.

2 weeks to 3 months after quitting:

Blood circulation gets better and lung function improves by as much as 20-30%.

1 to 9 months after quitting:

Your lungs work even better as you cough less and experience less shortness of breath.

6 months after quitting:

Coughing, tiredness, sinus congestion and shortness of breath all decrease.

1 year after quitting:

The risk of heart attack due to smoking falls to half that of someone who smokes.

10 years after quitting:

The risk of dying from lung cancer falls to half that of someone who smokes.

15 years after quitting:

The risk of dying from a heart attack is the same as for someone who has never smoked.

Thanks to all these health benefits, quitting smoking increases life expectancy.

There are also financial benefits to quitting. On average, a one-pack-a-day smoker who succeeds at quitting could save more than $3,000 in one year.

While it can be hard to quit smoking, there are ways to deal with the symptoms.
