When smokers quit — what are the benefits over time?
20 minutes after quitting - Your heart rate and blood pressure drop.
12 hours after quitting - The carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal.
2 weeks to 3 months after quitting - Your circulation improves and your lung function increases.
1 year after quitting - The excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a continuing smoker’s.
5 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 2-5 years.
