What Happens When You Quit Smoking

Smoking can be difficult to give up - but the health benefits are huge. Have a look at how your body starts reaping the benefits of quitting - as soon as just 20 minutes after your last cigarette! 

There are lots of long term effects too.

After five years the risk of heart attacks falls to about half compared with a person who is still smoking.

And after 10 years the risk of lung cancer falls to half that of a smoker, and your risk of a heart attack falls to the same as someone who has never smoked.
