Quitting tobacco is one of the best things you can do for your health. There are many benefits to quitting, but here are a few:
- Lowered risk of lung cancer and many other types of cancer
- Reduced risk for heart issues like heart disease and stroke
- Reduced respiratory symptoms like coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath
