Posted on Tin tức 421 lượt xem

Quitting smoking is incredibly difficult, probably one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. And yet, it’s also one of the most important things you can do to affect your life in a positive way. Although we’ve given you a few steps to quitting, we’re going to take this time to talk about why you should quit, rather than how.

Effects of stop smoking

The negative effects of tobacco smoke are well known, but what about the potential positive effects of kicking the habit? Is there any way back for a smoker’s body? As part of a report released by the World Health Organization for World No Tobacco Day shows, the potentially devastating effects of smoking are actually far from a one way street.

The effects of stop smoking

Broken addiction cycle

Within one month of quitting, the many nicotine receptors in your brain will return to normal, breaking the cycle of addiction.

Better circulation

Your blood circulation improves within 2 to 12 weeks of stopping smoking. This makes physical activity a lot easier and lowers your risk of a heart attack.

Improved taste and smell

Smoking damages nerve endings in your nose and mouth, dulling your senses of taste and smell. Within just 48 hours of quitting, the nerve endings begin to grow, and your sense of taste and smell begin to improve.

Improved taste and smell

More energy

Along with improved breathing and physical activity, the increased oxygen in your body will also give you more energy.

A boost to your immune system

Quitting smoking improves circulation, increases oxygen levels, and lowers inflammation — all of which give your immune system a boost, so it’s easier to fight off colds and other illnesses.

Cleaner teeth and mouth

Smoking yellows your teeth, causes bad breath, and increases your risk of oral infections. Within a week of quitting, you’ll begin to see and feel a difference in your mouth.

Improved sex life

Smoking can harm your sex life. It increases the risk of erectile dysfunction in men and contributes to female sexual dysfunction by reducing genital lubrication and orgasm frequency.

Improved sex life

Lower risk of cancer

It may take a few years after quitting, but you’ll lower your risk of cancers, such as:

  • lung cancer
  • esophageal cancer
  • kidney cancer
  • bladder cancer
  • pancreatic cancer
