First of all, the moment you quit your body starts the process of healing itself from all the damage smoking does. There are some benefits that you feel immediately, whilst others over time. Obviously the earlier in life you quit the better and longer quality of life you will have.
2. Quit and Save money
Tobacco, be it cigarettes or otherwise is expensive. And they will not get any cheaper. On the contrary the price of tobacco will continue to rise. Make a simple calculation and calculate how much you spend. Get the cost of how many cigarettes you smoke every day and multiply it by 365. Maybe you can see how much you can save in one year. The moment you quit smoking you will have more money in your wallet.
3. Quit for your kids and family
Smoking does not only harm you. It also harms those around you. Better known as second hand smoke, it is very dangerous and harmful. Studies show that if your children are exposed to second hand smoke, they will get more chest colds and ear infections. There are also concerns for smoking pregnant mothers.

4. More comfortable life
Smoking is today banned from many places, both leisure and work. This means that to smoke you need to walk outside. You cannot smoke in places like bars, clubs, restaurants, work and public places. So while your friends are still eating and drinking inside, you have to go out, in the rain to smoke a cigarette!
