If you are a smoker who believes that smoking only a few cigarettes a day does not harm you, you should think again. Norwegian scientists have studied the health records of 4300 men and women who have shown that light smoking, less than five per day, has shown triple the risk of heart disease and lung cancer. |
In both men and women smoking one to four cigarettes per day can be associated with a significant higher risk of ischemic heart disease. There is a study published in the Journal of Tobacco Control where researchers have tracked the health records of men and women from 1970 to 2002.
By reviewing these studies and realizing the cost not only in heart disease or cancer, but the cost to your children and others that care about you, please try to get help and quit before it is too late. There are many things you can do now that can help you quit. Talk to your doctor or pharmacy and ask for help - they are more than willing to help. But first you have to have the willingness to quit more than you want to smoke. Please get help where ever you can, and quit smoking, even if you only smoke a few cigarettes a day.
