Quit Smoking Benefits

You will feel the benefits of quitting straight away as your body repairs itself. Depending on the number of cigarettes you smoked, typical benefits of stopping are:

  • After 12 hours almost all of the nicotine is out of your system.
  • After 24 hours the level of carbon monoxide in your blood has dropped dramatically. You now have more oxygen in your bloodstream.
  • After 5 days most nicotine by-products have gone.
  • On 10th day you'll feel really good because all you blood cells will be oxygenated. All the residual smoke, nicotine and poisons will be cleansed from your body.
  • Within one month your blood pressure returns to its normal level and your immune system begins to show signs of recovery.
  • Within 2 months your lungs will no longer be producing extra phlegm caused by smoking.
  • After 12 months your increased risk of dying from heart disease is half that of a continuing smoker.
  • Stopping smoking reduces the incidence and progression of lung disease including chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
  • After 10 years of stopping, your risk of lung cancer is less than half that of a continuing smoker and continues to decline (provided the disease is not already present).
  • After 15 years your risk of heart attack and stroke is almost the same as that of a person who has never smoked.

Helpful Tips

Stopping smoking has major and immediate health benefits for men and women of all ages. These benefits apply to people with and without smoking-related diseases.

If you can eat oranges or pink grapefruit, eat three a day as this detoxes the body more rapidly. Drink more water to move the poisons out and flush and cleanse the system. Eat healthy fresh foods at your normal eating times. Fresh is Best!

Blackmore's Executive B complex tablets can be helpful if you have stress in your life (it is recommended that you take them for 10 days, or longer if you wish.)

Cut down on coffee and liquor while you quit.

Chlorophyll is excellent to add to your water, you can buy it at the health food shop. It helps clean the blood and heals cells in the body. It accelerates detoxing and promotes healing.

After that LAST cigarette, you are Finished with it all, so freshen the body. Treat yourself to a good men's/women's exfoliating Shower/Bath body scrub. Cleanse the skin of dead skin cells. Help shift toxins and the skin can breathe more freely... you'll feel great for it!

Cigarette smells permeate the bedclothes (from the hair and skin), so change your sheets and pillow cases.

Treat yourself to a Massage, Sauna or Steam room. It's relaxing and detoxing. Pamper yourself!

Get your teeth cleaned at the Dentist. Enjoy your fresh new mouth.

Change your habits. Eg. if you were used to going outside in the morning for a smoke with a tea or coffee, stand somewhere else, shift your BBQ furniture around or sit in a different chair, go for a walk... change your routine.

A shower last thing before bed is very refreshing and relaxing.
