Quit Smoking and Your Health Will Be Improved in 20 Minutes

by Martin Elmer

If you smoke your last cigarette now, your health will already have improved tomorrow. In fact the healing process will start after a few minutes. 20 minutes is all it takes, before the healing process starts.

20 minutes after your last cigarette, your blood pressure decreases, your pulse rate drops, and your body temperature of your hands and feet increases. 8 hours later your carbon monoxide level in blood drops to normal while oxygen level in blood increases to normal.

Tomorrow at the same time, your risk of a heart attack is decreased. And the day after tomorrow your nerve endings will begin to growth again. Your will also have improved your ability to taste and smell. On day later your breathing will be easier.

Your circulation will improve in the following weeks and months. Your walking will also be easier, and the lung function will improve. You will probably also feel that the nicotine withdrawal symptom isnt that bad. Now you can focus on the psychological need of smoking.

On year after you stopped smoking, your risk of coronary heart disease is decreased to half. And smoking is directly linked to 30 % of all heart disease deaths in the United States each year, so this is a very important step.

It is not only the short-term benefits, which makes it worth quitting. The risk of a stroke has been reduced to the same as people who have never smoked after only 5 years. And the risk of lung cancer drops to one-half that of the smokers after 10 years. The risk of other cancer types will also decrease; including the risk of cancer in the throat, esophagus, kidney, mouth, and pancreas.

The risk of coronary heart disease will be the same of people who have never smoked after 15 years. And in many other ways will the risk of death be at nearly the same level of people who have never smoked.

So stop smoking today and see the result already tomorrow. But remember that it is an ongoing process to heal from a nicotine addiction. So expect quick improvements, but do also realize that other improvements will happen more step by step.
