I know what you mean - before I gave up, I didn't know coal had a smell, much less that it was so strong when you had a bucket full of it waiting to go on the fire!

One less smoker is always good news.
I bet the Mrs enjoys the difference too?
Quitting smoking is quite a bit harder than quitting alcohol (not that I'm recommending that anyone should stop drinking)
The fact that you can smoke in more places than you can drink is by itself a major factor. For example you can't drink at work at most places I know, but smoking is allowed (in the designated place of course)
WOW thats fabulous because, once i was heavily drunk, about 6-8 pegs. My friends were with me, they said "Rahul have a cig"....
I still remember it was a Marlboro lights cigarette. I said, no thanks, if i smoke i will vomit. I dint touch that cigarette. Till the next day evening i never bothered to look at the cigarette. Later i gave it a thought, why not extend this period of leaving smoking.
But after a week i grew mad, i had to smoke....i had to, what ever it takes. But i controlled. The next day i smoked one. Now i thought, its foolish to quit at once, it should be gradual, okay. Now i smoked thrice a week. Now it has increased a little bit, i am afraid now, i dont want to go back there again.
Ok, please tell me, what difference do you feel? i mean something related to skin? i mean more clear complexion or something related to lungs or any thing? Please dont mind me asking such question because i want something to fall back on when i get the urge to smoke. I mean i should say to myself : "dont smoke, because you will grow more fit if you dont."
Skin tone is better, lungs are way better, stamina, recovery, all is way better. Taste, smell, is better. Energy levels are better. WHat can I say? Smoking makes you feel like an old person. If you are 40, and want to feel 70, then smoke.
If you are 29, and want to feel like 40, smoke.
If not. Don't.
Its a loaded gun too, you know you risk killing yourself at 50 or so from some nasty disease. Its about what, 33% chance you will die?
That's the choice, and the older you get, the closer you get to the deadline.

Note that they haven't got any data on cause and effect. So we don't know if mental illness makes you go vegan, or if a vegan diet makes you go mad.
Personally I'm betting on both, now, where's my bacon?
Cancer develops predominantly at a higher age, a lot because people haven't yet died from other deceases.
Correcting cancer rate to life expectancy and access to health care gives interesting results.
Comparing two countries that are so different in so many ways will not give you any usable results.
