There are millions of smokers here in the United States, but two-thirds of them want to quit. The impact of smoking shows up in disease and lost money. Smoking is an expensive habit that will probably ultimately kill you. Kicking this filthy habit is not easy, and it often doesn’t just happen overnight. There are treatments your chiropractor offers that can help smokers who are ready to quit. When you do take those steps and quit smoking, the benefits to your body begin almost immediately.
Within the first twenty minutes of your last cigarette, your blood pressure and pulse rate will return to normal. Within the first 24 hours, the carbon monoxide will have been removed from your body. This carbon monoxide in your body hindered blood from carrying oxygen to your cells, tissue and organs. Now that is is gone, the mucus and smoking remains will start to clear from your lungs. You will notice that you can breathe easier. After just two days, there is no nicotine left in your body. You will also notice dramatic improvements in smell and taste. You will also begin to feel more energised as it is easier to breathe. At the five month anniversary, you will discover that your circulation has improved and that nasty cough has finally cleared up. You lung function has also increased by about 10 percent. After 5 years of smoke-free living, your possibility of a heart attack is half that of a smoker and your risk of long-term disease has fallen drastically.
