Stop smoking hypnosis works and a new study shows that quitting smoking after a heart attack has immediate benefits, including less chest pain, better quality of daily life and improved mental health. Many of these improvements became apparent as little as one month after quitting and are more pronounced after one year.
Did you know that within 20 minutes of stopping smoking, your blood pressure, pulse rate and the temperature of your hands and feet have returned to normal. Within 8 hours the remaining nicotine in your bloodstream has fallen to 6.25% of normal peak daily levels, a 93.75% reduction. Within 12 hours your blood oxygen level has increased to normal. Carbon monoxide levels have dropped to normal. Within 48 hours damaged nerve endings have started to regrow and your sense of smell and taste are beginning to return to normal. Cessation anger and irritability will have peaked. Within 1 year your excess risk of coronary heart disease, heart attack and stroke has dropped to less than half that of a smoker. Within 5 to 15 years your risk of stroke has declined to that of a non-smoker and your risk of coronary heart disease is now that of a person who has never smoked.
A study by Dr. Joseph Barber of the University of Washington, Seattle, for example, found that hypnotic intervention can be integrated into a treatment protocol for smoking cessation. Of 43 patients who were undergoing the protocol, 39 were still smoke-free at their follow-up, which was 6 months to 3 years after the treatment ended.

Quitting smoking after heart attack gives quick boost to mental health, quality of life
Washington University School of Medicine, August 25, 2015: A new study shows that quitting smoking after a heart attack has immediate benefits, including less chest pain, better quality of daily life and improved mental health. Many of these improvements became apparent as little as one month after quitting and are more pronounced after one year, according to the research.
“Even in people who smoked and had a heart attack, we see fairly rapid improvements in important measures of health and quality of life when they quit smoking after their heart attacks, compared with people who continue smoking,” said senior author Sharon Cresci, MD, assistant professor of medicine.
