Risks of Smoking

Benefits of Quitting

  • Coronary Heart Disease
    Cigarette smoking is a major factor responsible for 120,000 excess US deaths from coronary heart disease (CHD) each year.

  • Sharply decreases risk after one year
    After 10 years, ex-smokers' risk is same as that of those who never smoked.

  • Chronic Bronchitis and
    Pulmonary Emphysema
    Cigarette smokers have 4-25 times risk of death from these diseases as nonsmokers. Damage seen in lungs of even young smokers.

  • Cough and sputum disappear during first few weeks. Lung function may improve and rate of deterioration slow down.

  • Stillbirth and Low Birth Weight
    Smoking mothers have more stillbirths and babies of low birth weight - more vulnerable to disease and death.

  • Women who stop smoking before 4th month of pregnancy eliminate risk of stillbirth and low birth weight caused by smoking.

  • Children of smoking mothers smaller, underdeveloped physically and socially, seven years after birth.

  • Since children of non-smoking mothers are bigger and more advanced socially, inference is that not smoking during pregnancy might avoid such underdeveloped children.

  • Peptic Ulcer
    Cigarette smokers get more peptic ulcers and die more often from them, cure is more difficult in smokers.

  • Ex-smokers get ulcers but these are more likely to heal rapidly and completely than those of smokers.

  • Allergy and Impairment of Immune System

  • Since these are direct, immediate effects of smoking, they are obviously avoidable when you stop smoking.
