"There is always a concern for cancer, COPD, emphysema, but also you know, being able to live longer and healthier.," said health education specialist Cody Orchard. "We know that just within 15 minutes of quitting your heart rate goes back to normal, your sense of smell and taste should come back within a week. Your lungs start to relax, all of that is within a week of quitting."
