How to stop smoking
Share |
Have you decided you want to quit smoking? It's the best and most important decision you can make to keep your heart healthy and avoid a first or second heart attack. Kicking the habit is no joke: a recent report shows that female smokers not only have a 25% higher risk than men of developing cardiovascular disease, but the risk increases at a faster rate with every year that a woman smokes. Researchers still don’t understand why women are more severely affected by cigarettes than men, but they theorize that it is a difference in physiology that makes women more vulnerable.

Make sure the decision to quit is yours and yours alone, and that you are not doing it to please or impress someone else. If you're ready, then click the links below to get ideas and advice on how to quit smoking successfully.
