This week a study released shows some very good news about a potential new campaign to stop smoking. This time the campaign is aimed directly at youth smokers, specifically teenagers and high school students. According to the study, exercising is a highly effective way to get these students to stop smoking.
The theory behind the study was that the nicotine in a cigarette creates a physical buzz that the kids enjoy. Because the students had been smoking for a year or less in most cases they had not become addicted to the nicotine directly but rather the buzz it provided. Heavy exercise was enough to provide that same buzz to the smokers and remove the need for nicotine or smoking.
Obviously this is still just a preliminary study but researchers say it is absolutely great news for smokers worldwide. This could easily be developed into a nicotine and exercise based stop smoking plan that may become the most successful stop smoking system ever. No word on when a follow up study will be conducted but doctors and researchers are hopeful that this will lead to something major. This is absolutely great news for anyone that has ever seriously struggled with stopping a major smoking habit.
