Pretty convincing stuff! Hard to argue with those benefits.
Thanks for the chart too, video was really helpful to outline all the great benefits that can be had after quitting. Goodluck to all those trying to quit, it's worth it for your health!

This video shows that the benefits of not smoking outweigh the negative nicotine withdrawal symptoms. I have very close family members and friends that smoke and even though they know the risks associated with smoking, quitting seems to be the hardest thing for them because they don’t want to deal with the nicotine withdrawal symptoms. For example, my husband used to be a smoker for almost 3 years. His throat was always sore, he was out of breath most of the time and he had a persistent cough, but after quitting all these symptoms disappeared. So as this video states there certainly are immediate and long-term benefits of quitting.
