Quitting smoking

If you smoke, quitting is the biggest step you can take to improve your health and wellbeing. You’ll feel a host of immediate and long-term benefits.

After just a few weeks, ex-smokers notice they cough less, are less congested, breathe easier, and have lower blood pressure and heart rate. Their senses of smell and taste soon also become much sharper. And in the longer term, after years of not smoking, research shows that the risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and lung disease is lessened. And it’s not just ex-smokers who benefit: when you quit, you’ll enjoy cleaner air at home, which is good for your families and friends. Don’t forget your wallet: it will be in better shape as well. 

If you have a definite plan to quit and are ready for the challenge, tallying up the benefits can boost your chances of butting out for good. Need a helping hand? Consult your health professional.
