My dad smoked for 30 years. Since he was14. He has averaged about 14 cigarettes a day. He is very active, in the road construction business often walking over 5 miles a day. He recently quit smoking 2 weeks ago. How long will it take for his lungs to clear out to the best it is going to get. Is there any time period(ex. Within the 5 years after quitting the risk of lung cancer developing is at its highest) that he is more prone to getting lung cancer, heart attack, or stroke? No history of cancer but my grandfather did have a very mild heart attack. He is walking talking and breathing just like he was before the heart attack. Do you know what I found? Focus on having a good time. He is doing the right thing, now leave it up to luck My son was always worried I would die suddenly like his friends dad. Then my wife died at 39, with me still going strong at 64
