In brief: Absolutely

You will breathe better and you will be more emotionally stable.
After the withdrawal period of several days-weeks- you will feel better.

Sometimes the increased energy takes the form of anger.

In brief: More oxygen, energy

Ex smokers report an energy boost between 2 and 3 times what it was when they smoked.
When you quit smoking, the carbon monoxide leaves your system, and oxygen levels in your blood increase, your senses and complexion improve, you see and think more clearly, and instead of tying up your energy fighting the effects of smoking, you can devote it to living your life!
