What Happens To Your Body When You Quit Smoking? The process of quitting smoking can be very challenging. Many people stick with it and eventually manage to kick the habit completely. If you’re looking to quit smoking and wondering what will happen, this infographic provides a timeline of what happens to your body when you quit smoking.
There’s no question that smoking is bad for your health. It increases your risk of developing lung cancer and many other health issues, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, and pulmonary diseases like emphysema or chronic bronchitis. But if you’ve decided to quit smoking, it may be helpful to know what exactly happens to your body when you do so—and how long it takes for those changes to show up. In this article, we’ll look at why quitting smoking is so important for your health (and why it can take so long), as well as at some specific effects of nicotine withdrawal on both physical and mental health over time.
While you may be aware that smoking causes cancer, heart disease and lung disease, you may not be aware of how many different ways it can affect your body. Smoking causes emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), stroke and other serious health issues.
In addition to these negative effects on smokers’ health, smoking also negatively affects the people who are around them. Secondhand smoke is dangerous to anyone who breathes it in—especially children and pets—and those who inhale secondhand smoke are more likely to develop lung cancer themselves than those who don’t breathe in chemicals from cigarette smoke all day long.
In the end, quitting is worth it. Whether you’re starting to think about smoking or have been smoking for years, quitting is a smart move for your health and your future. We know that quitting isn’t easy—but we hope this article has given you some helpful tips on how to do so successfully!
