Feeling Better?
 
If your quit day was within the last week or so, it's still probably a little early to reap all of the health benefits of smoking cessation. However, you may notice a few positive things.
 
Are foods tasting richer? Can you smell the intensity of the soap when you shower? An improved sense of taste or smell is one of the first things you may experience after giving up cigarettes. They will improve even more as you continue on your smoke-free journey.
 
And how's your pep? Do you feel more energized? Your energy level should pick up soon after your withdrawal symptoms wear off. And what about that smoker's cough? It may take a little longer before it goes away, but it will lessen, and one day you'll notice it's gone.
 
Keeping track of how you feel as a nonsmoker will reinforce your commitment to lead a smoke-free life. You'll notice more and more advantages every week. And if you find yourself craving a cigarette, you'll be able to remind yourself of all the good healthy feelings you've been experiencing since becoming smoke-free.
