Quitting smoking presents people who smoke with immediate and long-term benefits. A number of these benefits are ones that a former smoker will notice right away. For example, your sense of taste will improve, as well as your sense of smell, and your hair, clothes, and breath will all smell better. People who quit smoking will notice their fingernails and teeth stop yellowing, they will save money, and they will have more time and energy to pursue activities. People who quit smoking will also notice that they are more socially acceptable to those who do not smoke.
