This is an enlightening and straightforward list of the almost immediate and timely benefits to your health that occur after you quit smoking.  It starts within 20 minutes after your quit, when your blood pressure and pulse rate drop to normal levels. At surprisingly short periods of time after you quit, one after another health improvements occur, until, after 15 years, you are as healthy, at least for the ailments associated with smoking, as a nonsmoker.
