Today is the Great American Smokeout!
Today is the Great American Smokeout! It's a great day to quit smoking! Here are some of the benefits of Quitting Smoking!
The Benefits of Quitting Smoking
20 minutes after the last cigarette: blood pressure decreases, pulse rate drops and body temperature of hands and feet increases.
8 hours after quitting: carbon monoxide level in blood drops to normal, and oxygen level in blood increases to normal.
24 hours after quitting: chance of a heart attack decreases.
48 hours after quitting: nerve endings start re-growing and ability to smell and taste is enhanced.
After 2 weeks to 3 months: circulation improves: walking becomes easier, lung function increases.
After 1 to 9 months: coughing, sinus congestion, fatigue, shortness of breath decreases.
After 1 year: excess risk of coronary heart disease is decreased to half that of a smoker.
After 5 to 15 years: stroke risk is reduced to that of people who have never smoked.
After 10 years: risk of lung cancer drops to as little as one-half that of continuing smokers; risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas decreases; and risk of ulcer decreases.
After 15 years: risk of coronary heart disease is similar to that of people who never smoked; and risk of death returns to nearly the level of people who never smoked.
