Women Smiling

Many women are surprised by how well they feel after they quit smoking.

Here are four benefits many women experience after they quit:

  1. Feel More in Charge

    Women who quit often say they feel more in control of their lives because they don’t need to plan their lives around smoking. They don’t have to worry about finding places to smoke or about bothering others when they smoke.

  2. Smell better

    Many women say they’re glad they quit smoking because their hair, clothes, homes, cars, and breath don’t smell like smoke anymore. They also report that they can smell foods, flowers, and other good scents better.

  3. Have fewer worries

    Women who quit often feel that they have fewer worries because they’re not always making sure they have cigarettes. They also have more money and don’t have to worry about their health as much after they quit smoking.

  4. Look good and have more energy

    Many women say that they feel better after they quit smoking. They have more energy when they walk, play with their kids, or do something active. They also report that their skin looks healthier.
