Is damage already done?

Hey everybody
I am a 38 year old man and quit several months ago, after for smoking for about 23 years, only to start up again, slowly but surely, about a month ago. The one thing that continues to stress me out is that I fear the damage is already done. I continue to obsess that I already have laid the ground work for serious illness which only stresses me out which makes me want to smoke. I've been a runner for almost 15 years, even when I smoked, and even completed a marathon.
Any suggestions?
