Show your heart some love—quit smoking. When you do, the benefits start right away. Twenty minutes after your last cigarette, your heart rate begins to return to normal. One hour later, your blood pressure isn’t so high. One day tobacco-free, your risk for heart attack starts to drop. And one year later, it’s cut in half!
