In brief: It may take a while

To start feeling healthier as a nonsmoker. Start exercising which will be easier as a nonsmoker. Even as you become stronger, some of the changes will not be seen right away.
You have reduced your risk for cancer, heart disease and other illnesses, remind yourself that this is true to keep from relapsing. Congratulations on quitting!
