Quitting smoking

To a smoker, smoking brings pleasure and relief from a stressful environment. However, the pleasure from smoking is short-lived. No smoker will feel happy to get lung cancer.
There are many benefits of quitting smoking, even though you will suffer from withdrawal syndrome for a period of time.

10 benefits of quitting smoking
1. Reduction of carbon monoxide level
The carbon monoxide level in your body will decrease. You can experience the effect eight hours after your last cigarette. The oxygen level in your blood increases at the same time.
2. The improvement in smell and taste.
Your senses of smell and taste improve, and you can feel the effect within 48 hours of the last cigarette.
3. Breathing is easier.
4. Your health improves significantly in just three months
The effect of better blood circulation becomes apparent. While many men may not notice the sperm quality, it does return to normal.
For women, the fertility rate improves. If you participate in brisk walking and aerobic exercises, you will not feel tired easily.
5. Your health condition improves, almost to the level of non-smoker after six months.
Smokers experience coughing, tiredness, shortness of breath, and sinus congestion. After six months of non-smoking, you will not feel the symptoms above.
6. Risk of heart attack due to smoking decreases
This will happen about a year after the last cigarette. Your risk of suffering from a heart attack and stroke is as low as a non-smoker after you quit smoking for 15 years.
7. Risk of cancer decreases
Risk of smoking-related cancers, such as lung cancer, and oral cancer, decreases significantly.
8. No fear of endangering the health of your family
Your children have the opportunity to grow up in a smoke-free environment. They will not pick up the bad habit from you.
9. Self Respect
You are successful in quitting smoking. This will give you a sense of achievement, and self respect.
10. Fatter bank account
