There’s no doubt, the sooner you quit smoking the better off your health will be as a result…
Just found this chart at top5ofanything.com, it’s a little outdated at 2013 but it’s eye opening to see how Tobacco deaths compare to others in the list:
According to the tobaccoatlas.org “Globally, tobacco use killed 100 million people in the 20th century, much more than all deaths in World Wars I and II combined.
If you’re about to quit smoking, good news, you won’t have to wait very long to feel the benefits. Here are some useful facts on what happens to your body when you quit smoking which I compiled from the UK’s National Health Service website. And the best news is that there is NO nicotine in the body after 48 hours!
Smoking accounts for more deaths in the UK and USA than anything else. It takes a terrible toll on families, health services, businesses, and governments. In the USA, smoking kills around 430,000 people each year, more than alcohol, illegal drugs, car accidents, murders, suicides, and AIDs combined. In the UK, smoking directly causes over 100,000 deaths each year and contributes to many more.
