Quitting smoking is HANDS DOWN the best thing you can do for your health (yes, better than losing weight). Smoking has been proven to greatly increase your risk of heart attacks, strokes, peripheral artery disease and many cancers including liver cancer, breast cancer and kidney cancer. Smoking is a direct cause of emphysema and chronic bronchitis (people usually end up on home oxygen 24/7) and is the main cause of lung cancer. Head and neck cancers (like tongue and throat cancer) are almost NEVER seen in non-smokers..
Quitting smoking decreases your risk of all of these things, and the more years you are "smoke free" the better off you are!
