Smoking :: Exercise helps smokers to quit without side effects

Exercise, jogging and fitness is not only an effective way to control body weight, but it might also help smokers quit their bad habit. According to a new study conducted by researchers at the American College of Physicians, smokers who combine traditional anti-smoking techniques with physical exercise are more likely of never using the drug ever again than those who resort only to nicotine replacements.

“Exercise training is an effective therapy without side effects and aids in smoking cessation,” stated the researchers at this year’s CHEST meeting of the American College of Chest Physicians.

The American experts suggested that jogging and fitness makes quitting easier after the examinations of 68 smokers at two clinical centers in Austria.
