What are the advantages of stopping smoking? - A Guide to Stop Smoking

There are numerous benefits of stopping smoking which mainly include your health and lifestyle. The benefits are greater if you stop at an earlier age but you can still benefit from quitting at any age.

If you stop smoking before you reach middle age then your risk of heart disease and cancer is the same as that of a person who has never smoked.

If you stop smoking in your fifties or later then you will still reduce these risks and improve your overall health. If you are suffering from a long term disease caused by smoking then giving up will prevent any further damage. Plus it may also reduce the severity of your symptoms.

The benefits of stopping smoking are:

  • Reduced risk of heart disease
