Today is the Great American Smokeout!
November 20, 2014

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.
