Giving up smoking is never an easy task, it takes willpower, hard work and determination. Quitting smoking is one of the biggest steps to improving your health. No matter how old you are, it is never too late to give up smoking, stopping at any age will help increase your life expectancy, provided you stop before you develop cancer or another serious illness. You will start to feel the benefits as soon as you quit, for example after just 20 minutes your blood pressure & pulse will return to normal, and after 24 hours your lungs will start to clear. After just 1 month your skin will be brighter, clearer and hydrated. After 3-9 months your breathing will improve and you will have little of no coughing or wheezing. After a year of quitting, your risk of a heart attack or heart disease will have halved compared to that of a smoker.
