At this point, we should all really be aware of the damage that smoking can do to our bodies.

There’s health warnings slapped on the front of cigarette packets, frequent TV adverts, and NHS campaigns popping up here, there and everywhere.

And while we’re probably all guilty of a cheeky cigarette after a few too many beers, it’s the regular smokers who really need to worry about what they might be doing to their health.

Even so, although there’s plenty of information out there about how smoking hurts you, it’s probably more effective to instead consider the benefits that quitting can have on your body.

This handy infographic tells you exactly what happens to your body in the minutes, hours and days after you stub out that last cigarette. And you might be quite shocked at how quickly your life can change after giving up.

Remarkably, within less than half a day after quitting, you’ll already sleep better and be generally healthier than before.

After just several months, your breathing will have dramatically improved and, a year on, your risk of developing heart disease will have been cut in half!
