Smoking shortens your lifespan

Tobacco use wipes off around 14 years of healthy life with smokers dying prematurely of one or more of a range of tobacco-related diseases. Around a quarter of all smokers die in middle age. On the other hand, quitting smoking buys years of additional life. It has been estimated that giving up at ages 30, 40, 50 or 60 potentially gives back 10, 9, 6 and 3 years of life respectively – years that would otherwise be lost to smoking-related disease.
