Stop Smoking With Exercise

 

 

If you want to stop smoking get more exercise.

That is the conclusion by a study in two Austrian hospitals.

Patients were given treatment programs with either nicotine patches or nicotine gum, or a program that included exercise.

At the end of three months, 80 percent of those in the exercise program quit smoking. In the group that used only nicotine replacement, only 52 percent had quit.

Walking is a simple, yet the most effective exercise, that can be enjoyed by everyone almost anywhere.
