Trying to Stop Smoking? Start Exercising

Researchers in Vienna at Otto Wagner Hospital have released a new study showing that exercise may be one of the keys to successfully ending a smoking addiction. They found that 80 percent of cigarette smokers who used both exercise and nicotine- replacement therapy successfully quit smoking. Only 52 percent who only used the nicotine-replacement therapy were able to stop smoking. An added benefit is that those who exercise during a smoking cessation program also tend to snack less, leading to less weight gain during the process. A good way to start is to add a 30 minute walk to your daily routine. You will probably find that the benefits in overcoming the addiction and to your health in general kick in almost immediately.
