A 2014 scientific study found that within a year of smoking cessation (or hospitalization for heart attacks), people significantly reduced their stress and became less anxious. Dental problems decrease after you stop smoking. Tartar and gum disease are reduced, but also the danger of more dangerous diseases of the mouth and oral cavity.
Skin becomes smooth after smoking cessation. Cigarettes cause unwanted wrinkles around the lips and change the tone of the skin. Experts believe that only a month and a half after smoking cessation, the skin looks fresher and younger.
Scientists link smoking and baldness (in men). Older smokers have a higher risk of early baldness. Quitting smoking at middle age means increased life expectancy. Smoking as much as one to nine cigarettes per day reduces the life expectancy of women and men. Smokers do not feel mild food and generally feel less in the taste of food due to a different stimulation of the tasteful nipples on the tongue and less connection with blood vessels. Mild cold symptoms in smokers can turn into a serious health problem. One study found that exposure to tobacco smoke could cause immune system reactions.
