The positive effects on your body after quitting smoking and tobacco use start almost immediately and continue for years. Blood pressure drops, circulation improves, lung function increases. After nine months, you’ll experience less shortness of breath and your lungs are better able to fight infection. After five years of quitting, your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus and bladder are cut in half.
