Mark Twain once said,
QUITTING SMOKING IS EASY; I’VE DONE IT A THOUSAND TIMES.”
If you tried once and didn’t succeed,
DON’T LOSE HOPE!
Instead of focusing on the quitting part, focus on the benefits—that can last a lifetime.

1 TO 9 MONTHS.
You may have less coughing and less shortness of breath.
Compared to smokers, your risk of heart disease may be cut in half.
