You'll have fewer wrinkles. Because smoking lowers the body's ability to generate new skin, people who smoke get wrinkles and show other signs of aging sooner.
People who quit
smoking have a better quality of life. They reduce their risks for cancer, lung
diseases, heart attacks, strokes, blood vessel diseases, and blindness from
macular degeneration. They get sick less often, heal faster, and have fewer colds and flu episodes. And
they have less bronchitis and pneumonia. Their mood is better, and they are less stressed.
