Smoking has a long-term effect on your health and is associated with heart disease, cancer and stroke. Smoking every day can make you feel short of breath, less tired, and can also affect things like your blood pressure.

The benefits of stopping can be felt immediately – blood pressure and pulse normalize in just 20 minutes. After 24 hours, your lungs begin to clear of mucus, after 48 hours your taste and smell improve and nicotine is eliminated from the body – this is just the beginning!
