Health Benefits of Quitting

  • Within 20 minutes, your blood pressure and pulse drop to normal and your body temperature in your hands and feet increase to normal.
  • After 8 hours, carbon monoxide levels in the blood drop to normal and your oxygen level increases.
  • After 24 hours, your breath, hair, and body stop smelling like smoke. Your chances of a heart attack decreases.
  • After 48 hours, your nerve endings recover. Your sense of taste and smell improve.
  • After 72 hours, the nicotine is out of your body. Bronchial tubes relax, making breathing easier.
  • After 2 weeks to 3 months, your lungs can hold more air. Exercise becomes easier and your circulation increases.
  • After 1 to 9 months, coughing, congestion, fatigue and shortness of breath decrease. The cilia (tiny hair cells) in your lungs regrow, which cleans the lungs and helps prevent infections. Overall, your body energy increases.
  • After 1 year, your risk of coronary heart disease is cut in half.
  • After 5 years, your risk of a stroke is reduced to that of a non-smoker.
