What are the benefits of quitting smoking?
As soon as you quit smoking, your body begins to repair itself. Your health will improve, you will live longer and you will save money. More specific advantages of quitting smoking include: your senses of smell and taste improve; exercising becomes easier as coughing and wheezing reduce; bad breath improves; risk of lung cancer reduces - after 10 years it is less than half that of a continuing smoker; early effects of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) can be reversed; effects of passive smoking on your family and friends are eliminated, and; risks and effects during pregnancy are removed.
