Reasons Why You Should Quit Smoking

By doing so, you get to lower your risk for heart attack, stroke, emphysema, cancer and other terminal illnesses.

You would feel better and have more energy to be able to focus on other important things, like your family or your job because you won't be focusing on when will be your next puff.

You will breathe easier and cough less.

You will be more physically healthy and active because you will be less short of breath and fatigued.

You will save money ;). You don't need to set aside some amount to buy your cigarette.

You will be protecting your family and friends from the dangers of second-hand smoke instead of exposing them.

For women who quit smoking, they will reduce their risk for fertility problems, premature birth and low birth-weight babies.

You would look better, smell better, have healthier teeth, healthier gums, fresher breath and cleaner clothes.

You won't have to worry about going to bars, restaurants or shops and not being able to smoke.
