Why should I quit smoking?

ANSWER

There are so many reasons. When you quit, you’ll feel better and cut your chances of having a heart attack, stroke, or cancer. It’s worth it, even if you’ve smoked for a long time.

The people you live with, especially children, will be healthier if you quit smoking. If you’re pregnant, you will improve your chances of having a healthy baby. And you will have extra money to spend on things other than cigarettes.
