If your New Year’s resolution is to quit smoking, then well done to you! Stubbing out those cigs will have massive benefits on your health, your appearance and your bank balance! And while some habit changes seem forever to bring results, stopping smoking creates health benefits in just twenty minutes! Our leading Stoke on Trent chiropractor reminds you just how quickly your body will respond from cutting out cigarettes:
After just 20 minutes: Your pulse rate will return to normal
After 8 hours: Nicotine and carbon monoxide levels in your blood will lessen by over 50% and normal oxygen levels will be restored.
After 48 hours: There will be no carbon monoxide left in your body and your lungs will begin to get rid of mucus.
After 72 hours: Your breathing will become noticeably easier and your bronchial tubes will start to relax. At this time, you will see an increase in your energy levels.
After 2-12 weeks: Your circulation will improve.
After 3-9 months: Your lung function will increase by up to 10% and you will notice an improvement in coughs and breathing problems.
After 12 months: Your risk of heart disease will now be around 50% lower than a smoker
After 10 years: Your risk of lung cancer will be around 50% lower than a smoker
After 15 years: Your risk of having a heart attack will be that of someone who has never smoked.
It takes less time to start benefiting from quitting smoking than it does to watch one episode of a soap opera! Don’t give up giving up!
