    Top 6 Benefits of Quitting Smoking

    6) Lookin’ good, feelin' better
    Quitting slows facial aging (less wrinkles), stops bad breath and teeth yellowing. Plus, exercise becomes easier and more enjoyable!

    5) Faster recovery
    Quitting will make a huge difference in recovery time and risk of complications after any kind of surgery.

    4) Fewer sick days
    Quitting makes it easier to fight off colds and flu.

    3) More energy
    Quitting increases oxygen in the body, and improves circulation (less tired and fewer headaches).

    2) Longer life
    Quitting is the single best thing a person can do to improve the quality and length of their life.
    • After one year, risk of a heart attack or stroke is cut in half.
    • After five years, risks of throat and mouth cancers are cut in half.
    • After ten years, chance of getting lung cancer is down 50%.
    • After 15 years, risk of heart disease and stroke is back to the same level of a non-smoker.

    1) Better sex
    Stopping smoking improves circulation and that means better… uh… blood flow. Heavy smokers suffer erectile difficulty 60% more than non-smokers.

  • Friends & Family

    To be there for my family. Someone they look up to and count on.

    Quitting smoking makes a positive difference in the lives of those I care about.

    No more second-hand smoke

    • Even a little second-hand smoke can cause respiratory problems - including coughing, wheezing, and breathlessness. It is especially dangerous for those with conditions like asthma.
    • Children are also more likely to have lung problems, ear infections, and asthma from being around second-hand smoke.
    • Babies who breathe second-hand smoke are at a greater risk of dying from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and have weaker lungs than babies who do not breathe in second-hand smoke.

    More money for those who matter

    The average pack-a-day smoker spends almost $4,000 a year on cigarettes. That’s a family vacation a year, and after five years, that's almost a college education!

    Setting the right example

    Quitting smoking sends a big message to my kids and those around me. It shows that I care, that I want to be there for them and that it’s important to be a good role model.
