According to the u.s. surgeon general, this is what happens after your last cigarette:
20 minutes: your blood pressure drops
8 hours: the carbon monoxide level in your blood drops back to normal.
24 hours: your chance of a heart attack decreases.
2 weeks to 3months: your circulation improves and lung fuction increases.
1- 9 months: your coughing, sinus congestion, fatigue and shorness of breath decrease.
1 year: your added risk of heart disease is half that of a smoker.
5-15 years: your stroke risk is reduced to that of a nonsmoker.
10 years: your lung cancer death rate is about half that of a smoker
15 years: your risk of heart disease is back to that of a non-smoker...

stop now...please...
