Smoking & chewing tobacco is bad for your health, but exactly how does quitting make life better? Here are ways your health will improve when you stop smoking.

  • After 60 minutes your blood pressure and pulse return to normal.
  • After 24 hours your lungs start to clear.
  • After two days your body is nicotine-free and your sense of taste and smell improve.
  • After three days you can breathe more easily, and your energy increases.
  • After two to 12 weeks, your circulation improves.
  • After three to nine months coughs, wheezing and breathing improves.
