Dear lybrate-user, don't worry. Congratulations on quitting. You did a great thing. Your body has started its repair process immediately on your quitting smoking. You need to augment it with plenty of liquids, fruit juices and nutritious food. Physical exercise and sweating helps to clean the lungs from the nicotime residues. On an average it will take around one year to completely clear the lungs. In the meantime, do not smoke even a single cigarette. Take care.
