No matter how old you are or how long you’ve smoked,
quitting can help you live longer and be healthier.
People who stop smoking before age 50 cut their risk
of dying in the next 15 years in half compared with
those who keep smoking. Ex-smokers enjoy a higher
quality of life. They have fewer illnesses like colds and
the ;u, lower rates of bronchitis and pneumonia, and
feel healthier than people who still smoke.*
