Benefits of Quitting Smoking


• Quitting smoking any time will make life not only better, but also longer.

• If you are pregnant, quitting smoking will improve your chances of having a healthy baby.

• Infants and young children are at special risk and could suffer permanent damage due to cigarette side-stream smoke.

• You will have extra money to spend on things other than cigarettes.

• Studies have shown that more than 25 percent of U.S. adults smoke and if you are a 45-year-old woman who does smoke, the odds that you’ll die in the next decade are 50 in 1,000.

• Although 70% of smokers want to stop smoking and 41% attempt to quit smoking each year, only 2.5% succeed.

• Smoking can restrict the blood supply to the lower spine, leading to chronic back pain, and also can slow recovery from bone surgery.

• Research has determined that heavy cigarette smoking by female smokers doubles the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis.
