How do you benefit when you quit smoking...

No matter how old you are when you quit smoking, you improve your chances of living longer than people who continue to smoke. And because smoking contributes to many other health problem including ulcers, premature wrinkles, gum and tooth disease etc.. If you quit smiking at the age of 50 you reduce the risk of dying in the next 15 years to half that of people who continue to smoke.

We are all aware of the benefits of not smoking. But it seems that many people are still smoking despite knowing the fact that smoking kills. It's not that these people do not treasure their lives. It's just that smoking means something to them, which cause them to take the risk.

Hello jUnrhene.. Welcome to mylot... I know that smoking doesn't benefit me at all. I just can't help myself. I think that it would be easier to point that out. I know it would be really bad. I'm gonna look forward of having a short lifetime.. hehehe
