This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Quit Smoking
How many times have you motivated yourself to quit smoking? How many of you have actually succeeded in it? Quitting smoking is not easy but if you have really made up your mind, then you should definitely see this infographic for that added motivation.
This infographic, created by CVS Health, explains step by step what happens to your body after your last cigarette. Starting from 20 to 30 minutes after your last cigarette, this infograph goes on to describe the impact of turning a non-smoker after 15 years of smoking.
While initially after 20 minutes, your blood pressure and pulse drops, but after 48 hours your sense of taste and smell improves. After a year, the risk of heart disease drops to almost half of a that of a smoker; and after 10 years, the risk of lung cancer reduces to half and risk of pancreatic cancer reduces to that of a non-smoker.
Finally, after 15 years, the risk of heart disease or death is similar to that of a non-smoker. Although 15 years is a long time, but it sure is worth the effort!
So, if this isn’t motivating enough to quit smoking, we wonder what is. After seeing this infographic, you should definitely consider quitting smoking.
