How long after you quit smoking do your lungs start to heal? and is it true?

Bad Robbit
7 days

This depends on how much damage you have already caused to your lungs. If you have much damage then you can't completely heal. But if you stop smoking then you will slow the progression of the lung disease. Stop smoking right away. Good luck.

The body begins to heal almost immediately after your last cigarette, when the heart rate and the blood pressure returns to normal levels. Of course, the more serious healing takes more time than several minutes, but it's important to realize that every minute that you DON'T smoke gives you an advantage over those who are currently still smoking.

Soon as you stop,Wish I never started as a 10 yr. old punk.Between smoking and nasty chemical factory jobs with no work environment protection.I now have emphysema,toxic bronchitis,which leaves me with C.O.P.D.That is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Take it from me it is a nasty slow death of suffocation.

robert KS LEE.
u must be healthy n if ur body metabolism is good it w'd heal faster about 6 months.it's true of course that u must do more exercise n eat better nutritious food as well.take care.

When Smokers Quit – What Are the Benefits Over Time?

20 minutes after quitting: Your heart rate and blood pressure drops.

12 hours after quitting: The carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal.

2 weeks to 3 months after quitting: Your circulation improves and your lung function increases.

1 to 9 months after quitting: Coughing and shortness of breath decrease; cilia (tiny hair-like structures that move mucus out of the lungs) regain normal function in the lungs, increasing the ability to handle mucus, clean the lungs, and reduce the risk of infection.

1 year after quitting: The excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker's.

5 years after quitting: Your stroke risk is reduced to that of a nonsmoker 5 to 15 years after quitting.

10 years after quitting: The lung cancer death rate is about half that of a continuing smoker's. The risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, cervix, and pancreas decrease.

15 years after quitting: The risk of coronary heart disease is that of a nonsmoker's.

your lungs begin to heal almost immediately after you quit smoking.

you will begin to see small improvements in circulation and lung function within the first 3 weeks after you quit.

ability to clear lung mucus will improve and coughing, fatigue, shortness of breath will decrease within 1-9 months.

after a year, your risk of cardiovasular disease (heart attack and stroke) decreases by half.

after 5 years, your risk of stroke and heart attack will be equal to someone who never smoked in their life.

after 13 years, your risk of lung cancer will drop by half.

after 15 years, your risk of lung cancer will be equal to that of someone who never smoked in their life.
