How long is it supposed to it take for your body/lungs to heal after quitting smoking?

6 month

While some parts of the lungs may heal from the damage caused by smoking, much of the damage is permanent and will leave smokers (and quitters) at an increased risk for a range of health problems.

Natural healing

takes a long time if there is no permanent damage. The body is a self healing machine. The ONLY thing you can do is attend to a good diet and lifestyle and wait for healing to occur

Now that you have taken your first steps on the road to a healthier life, your lungs will naturally heal themselves. The best ways you can help them to do this are to continue to not smoke, to eat a good and balanced diet, to sleep well, and to begin an exercise program. The more you do for your overall health, the better able to heal your lungs will be. There are no magic pills.

Dr. Bahman Omrani answered:

Quitting smoking, will my lungs repair themselves over time?

No Butts

Yes, depending on the amount and length exposure (pack years = packs of cigarettes smoked daily divided by the amount of years smoked). Research has shown that lungs of x-smokers are indistinguishable from those of non-smokers 10-15 years after one has quit smoking. The body has the tendency to heal itself.
