Smoking is a modifiable risk factor for diabetes. Improvements in circulation and lung function begin soon after a person quits smoking, leading to improved health.

National guidelines strongly recommend smoking counseling to help people to quit smoking (National Cancer Institute (NCI) Prevention and Cessation of Cigarette Smoking: Control of Tobacco Use). Tobacco Cessation Guidelines from the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) provide helpful tips on smoking cessation for patients.
