Smoking is a nasty habit and one of the top controllable risk factors for heart disease.

The American Medical Association and countless other organizations say that ending this addiction can be one of the biggest steps you can take to improving your health.

You reap some of  the benefits of quitting within the first few days and you lower your risk of heart attack by 50% in the first year, not to mention how much money you will save on cigarettes. If you quit a 10-cigarette per day habit, you will save more than 1,300 hundred dollars a year.
