Stop Smoking

Stop the habit

Tobacco use, particularly smoking, takes your breath away

When smokers quit, the benefits accumulate over time, says the American Cancer Society:

  • 20 minutes after quitting: Heart rate and blood pressure drop.

  • 12 hours after quitting: The carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal.

  • Two weeks to three months after quitting: Circulation improves and lung function increases.

  • One to nine months after quitting: Coughing and shortness of breath decrease; cilia (tiny hair-like structures that move mucus out of the lungs) start to regain normal function in the lungs, increasing the ability to handle mucus, clean the lungs and reduce the risk of infection.

  • One year after quitting: The excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a continuing smoker’s.

  • Five years after quitting: Risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus and bladder are cut in half. Cervical cancer risk falls to that of a non-smoker. Stroke risk can fall to that of a non-smoker after two to five years.

  • 10 years after quitting: The risk of dying from lung cancer is about half that of a person who is still smoking. The risk of cancer of the larynx (voice box) and pancreas decreases.

  • 15 years after quitting: The risk of coronary heart disease is that of a non-smoker’s.
