Nicotinell moss billboard shows how quickly your lung function improves after quitting smoking

Nicotinell are showing that you can restore your O2 levels and improve your breathing faster than it took them to grow these moss billboards

This October, with moss billboards, Nicotinell are showing that you can restore your O2 levels and improve your breathing faster than it took them to grow the moss on the billboards! (The moss took 8 weeks to grow)

There’s no denying that quitting smoking is extremely difficult and many people struggle to give up cigarettes for good. But the data shows that people do want to quit! In fact, almost half (45%) of current smokers, aged over 16 in Great Britain, want to stop smoking.

That’s why Nicotinell are creating a moss-covered billboard that shows how fast your lung function can improve after quitting smoking.

A study has shown that the earlier you quit smoking the better and if you quit before the age of 30, you can avoid more than 90% of the smoking-attributed risk of lung cancer.

But what’s pretty amazing is that the benefits of quitting smoking can been seen as quickly as 20 minutes after stopping as our pulse rates return to normal. After 8 hours, our oxygen levels return to normal, and our lungs start to clear out smoking debris within 48 hours of our last cigarette.

And from around 3-9 months our lung function increases by up to 10%, improving coughs, wheezing, or breathing problems. Other health improvements are seen over the course of several years, depending on how long you’ve previously smoked.
