 Quit smoking. Feel better. Live longer.

This is a personally run site. It is not TSA sponsored. There is no posting of any SSI/FOUO/PII on the site.

I know that it is not easy, but every day people show it can be done. The more you know about how to quit, the better your chances for success. There is not one "right" way to quit smoking that work for everyone. But believe me it can be done. Read how I did it. I smoked for 20 years and I quit.

Within 12 hours after you have your last cigarette, your body will begin to heal itself. The levels of carbon monoxide and nicotine in your system will decline rapidly, and your heart and lungs will begin to repair the damage caused by cigarette smoke. See below some more benefits of quitting.

In 24 hours Your chance of heart attack drops.
In 2 days Your ability to smell and taste improve.        
In 2 to 3 weeks Your circulation gets better.        
  You can walk more easily.        
  Your lung function improves.        
In 1 month Your cough, sinus congestion, fatigue, and shortness of breath decrease.        
  Your lungs start to repair themselves, reducing the chance of infection.        
In 1 year Your risk of heart disease is cut in half.        
In 5 years Your risk of cancer of mouth, throat, and esophagus drops by about half.        
  Your risk of stroke and heart disease is reduced to that of non-smokers (about 5 to 15 years after quitting).        
In 10 years Your chance of dying of lung cancer is about the same as non-smokers.
