It’s been a month since you made the commitment to quit smoking. Nicely done.
If you’re still making plans to quit cigarettes, get prepped with these helpful tips:
Even if you’ve slipped up once or twice over the course of the month, you’ve still made monumental progress — and now it’s time to reap the rewards.
Yes, there are in fact rewards. But what are they? Well, funny you should ask…
The average time to smoke a cigarette is six minutes. If you’re a pack-a-day smoker, that means you’re saving nearly two hours a day for 30 days, bringing your monthly time-saving grand total to nearly 60 hours.
Cigarettes are expensive, with prices falling somewhere between $5 – $15 dollars a pack (depending on the state). Quitting smoking for a month means that pack-a-day smokers can save, on average, around $300.
A month without cigarettes, your body is already well into the self-healing process. You’ll notice breathing is easier as your lung capacity and function increase. Circulation also improves and so does athletic endurance, leading to a renewed ability to engage in cardiovascular activity.
Quitting smoking for a month improves all aspects of your oral health: You’ll have a reduced risk of mouth cancer and gum disease, a brighter smile, and a heightened sense of taste and smell.
