When you stop smoking

When you smoke there are thousands of chemicals entering your body. The effect of these chemicals not only damages your lungs but also your heart and many other body structures. The more you smoke the more damage that you do to your body.

Healthline, the popular online health and advice website tells us that the body starts to repair after just 20 minutes from your last cigarette. Your blood pressure and pulse will start to return to normal levels. Bronchial tubes will now start to move again. This is an important function because irritants and bacteria are filtered out of the lungs and when the bronchial fibers do not move then filtration does not take place.

Eight hours after your last cigarette your carbon monoxide levels start to return to near normal levels. Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that restricts oxygen from nourishing tissues and blood vessels.

24 hours after your last cigarette there is a decrease in your risk of heart attack due to reduced constriction of veins and arteries. Oxygen levels have started to improve while nicotine levels in your bloodstream have decreased.

48 hours after your last cigarette some damaged nerve endings will start to regrow. At this point you may realize that your smelling and tasting ability is better than it was before.

72 hours after your last cigarette you will find yourself breathing more easily because the bronchial tubes inside your lungs have started to relax and open up all. The exchange between carbon dioxide and oxygen is now easier. One week after your last cigarette it is now much easier for you to quit as your body's dependence on cigarettes has decreased. After two weeks you're able to walk much easier because your lung function has increased by 30%.

One month after your last cigarette you will feel a heightened overall energy and improvement in areas such as sinus congestion and shortness of breath. Three months after the last cigarette a woman can improve her fertility as well is reduce the risk that her baby will be born prematurely.

One year after your last cigarette there are dramatic health improvements in terms of capacity and functioning. Your breathing is easier and you are able to exert yourself in

exercise and other activities.

After three years from your last cigarette your risk of heart attack has decreased almost to the level of a non-smoker and then after five years your chances of death from lung cancer has dropped by half.

On top of all these wonderful changes you have actually saved around $45,000 by not buying cigarettes.
