Of all the risk factors we talk about to improve your health, if you are a smoker, the number one thing you should do is to quit tobacco.

That's more important than exercise and diet although they're all important.

When you quit smoking your risk of heart disease and your risk of cancer goes down.

It's never too late to quit smoking and the most important thing is you quit as soon as possible because the longer you smoke, the more risk you have.

Smoking can lead to numerous health problems. Dr. Robert Schwab​, Internist with Boys Town Internal Medicine, explains that quitting smoking is the best thing you can do to improve your health. ​
