Quitting smoking before you celebrating your 30th birthday could add an extra 10 years to your life expectancy.

The study published in The Lancet medical journal looked at 1.3 million women, who were recruited in 1996—2001 and then resurveyed around 3 and 8 years later. The findings showed that women who continued to smoke into middle age died 10 years earlier than those who gave up by the age of 30.

Speaking to the BBC, Lead researcher Prof Sir Richard Peto, from Oxford University said, "More than half of women who smoke and keep on smoking will get killed by tobacco...Smoking kills, stopping works and the earlier you stop the better."

Can't argue with that.
