The Journey to Recovery: How Your Body Rebuilds After Quitting Smoking and Vaping

Did you know there are over 7,000 chemical compounds found in cigarettes and over 2,000 in vapes?

The time to quit has never been greater and it not only will enhance your wallet with savings of over £4000 or more per year, if you smoke 20 per day, but also don't forget the huge benefits to your health and longevity.

A typical hypnosis session to quit smoking or vaping last up to 2 hours but that's it- its done in one session!

Here are some of the benefits:

20 Minutes: Liberation Begins Just 20 minutes after your last cigarette or vape, your body starts its journey to recovery. Your heart rate begins to stabilize, and blood pressure starts to drop. The constriction of your blood vessels caused by nicotine begins to ease, improving blood flow and circulation throughout your body.

8 Hours: Oxygen at Work 

Within 8 hours of quitting, the oxygen levels in your blood start to return to normal. Your body is finally able to utilise oxygen more efficiently, which can lead to increased energy levels and better overall vitality.

12 Hours: Carbon Monoxide Declines

As the clock hits the 12-hour mark, the carbon monoxide levels in your bloodstream decrease significantly. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas found in cigarette smoke and vaping emissions that competes with oxygen for space in your red blood cells. With its levels dropping, your body can transport oxygen more effectively.

24 Hours: Lung Bliss 

One day after quitting, your lungs already begin to breathe a sigh of relief. The excess mucus and debris that accumulated due to smoking or vaping start to be cleared from your airways. This leads to better lung function, improved breathing, and reduced coughing. Your heart attack risk also declines.

48 Hours: Nicotine Farewell 

Within 48 hours, nicotine is well on its way out of your system. As your body adjusts, you'll begin to experience improved taste and smell. Flavors become richer, and scents become more vibrant – a small but encouraging sign of your body's healing.

3 Days: Breaking the Grip 

At the 72-hour mark, the nicotine addiction's hold on your body loosens even further. Physical withdrawal symptoms peak around this time, but as your body adapts, your cravings begin to diminish. Your bronchial tubes relax, making it easier to breathe, and your energy levels increase. Carbon Monoxide levels return to normal.

2 Weeks: Respiratory Rebirth

Two weeks into your journey, your lung function takes a noticeable leap. You'll find yourself breathing more deeply and effortlessly. With the cilia – tiny hair-like structures in your airways – regaining function, they can now effectively clear mucus and pollutants, reducing your vulnerability to infections. Shortness of breath also improves.

3-9 Months: Cardiovascular Renewal

Between 3 and 9 months, your cardiovascular system experiences remarkable changes. Your risk of heart disease starts to drop, and your blood circulation continues to improve. The strain on your heart lessens, and your endurance during physical activities increases. You're on the path to better heart health.

1 Year: Milestone Achieved 

Reaching the one-year mark is a significant milestone. Your risk of coronary heart disease has dropped to about half that of a current smoker's. Your lung function has significantly improved, and your risk of respiratory infections is lower. Celebrate this achievement – your commitment is paying off.

5 Years: Respiratory Revival 

Five years smoke-free or vape-free, and your lungs are in celebration mode. The risk of stroke has significantly diminished, and your lung capacity has increased. Your risk of lung cancer has also dropped by half compared to someone who's still smoking.

10 Years: The Healing Continues

A decade after quitting, your risk of dying from lung cancer is now half that of a smoker's. You've significantly reduced your risk of various other cancers and are making strides in preventing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

15 Years: Full Circle 

Fifteen years into your smoke-free or vape-free life, your risk of coronary heart disease is now almost the same as someone who has never smoked. Your body has shown an incredible capacity for recovery, reminding you of the importance of your decision to quit smoking or vaping.

Remember, every step of this journey is a testament to your strength and commitment. Your body's recovery from the effects of smoking or vaping is a remarkable process that illustrates the incredible resilience and healing potential that reside within us.
