Quitting smoking before 40 could add 10 years to your life

It's well known that being a smoker cuts at least 10 years from your total life span- but a new study has found that people who quit prior to turning 40 can potentially gain all of those years back.

The study, that came out of the University of Toronto found that people who quit smoking between ages 35 and 44 gained about nine years to their lives, as well as those who were aged 45-54 who gained six years, and those who were 55-64 gained four years. It also found that non smokers were almost twice as likely to live to the age of 80.

According to the leader of the study, Professor Prabhat Jha: "Quitting smoking before age 40, and preferably well before 40, gives back almost all of the decade of lost life from continued smoking.

"That's not to say that it is safe to smoke until you are 40 and then stop. Former smokers still have a greater risk of dying sooner than people who never smoked. But the risk is small compared to the huge risk for those who continue to smoke."
