What will happen to your body once you quit smoking?

Whether you have smoked for 4 years or 40, it is not too late to quit and, by doing so you’ll dramatically increase your odds of a healthy life. Here is what happens when you stop smoking:

24 hours after quitting: Carbon monoxide and nicotine have left your system.

A month after quitting: You’ll notice a visible difference in your skin.

A year after quitting: Your risk of heart attack is now half that of a smoker.

Two years after quitting: Your risk of stroke is reduced to that of a non-smoker.

10 years after quitting: Your risk of lung cancer is now half that of a smoker.

15 years after quitting: Your risk of heart attack is now the same as someone who has never smoked.
