What Happens to Your body if you stop smoking Right now?

I think one of the main reasons it’s so hard to quit smoking is because all the benefits of quitting and all the dangers of continuing seem very far away. Well, here’s a little timeline about some of the more immediate effects of quitting smoking and how that will affect your body RIGHT NOW.

In 20 minutes
your blood pressure will drop back down to normal.

In 8hours
the carbon monoxide (a toxic gas) levels in your blood stream will drop by half, and oxygen levels will return to normal.

In 48 hours
your chance of having a heart attack will have decreased. All nicotine will have left your body. Your sense of taste and smell will return to a normal level.

In 72 hours
your bronchial tubes will relax, and your energy levels will increase.

In 2 weeks
your circulation will increase, and it will continue to improve for the next 10 weeks.

In three to nine months
coughs, wheezing and breathing problems will dissipate as your lung capacity improves by 10%.

In 1 year
your risk of having a heart attack will have dropped by half.

In 5 years
your risk of having a stroke returns to that of a non-smoker.

In 10 years
your risk of lung cancer will have returned to that of a non-smoker.

In 15 years
your risk of heart attack will have returned to that of a non-smoker.

So, you have more immediate things to look forward to if you quit now besides just freaking out about not being able to smoke.
