It’s never too late to quit tobacco. After going tobacco free for just 20 minutes you’ll start to experience the positive benefits of quitting, and many of the negative health effects of tobacco can be reversed by quitting. Studies have shown that quitting at around age 30 reduces the chance of dying from smoking-related diseases by more than 90%. If you quit at around age 50, you reduce the risk of dying prematurely by 50% compared with those who continue to smoke. Even those who quit at around age 60 or older live longer than those who continue to smoke.
