Kick the Habit!

March 26, 2015

It is never too late to get a nicotine free new lease on life! Most studies now show that long-term smokers lose up to 10 years off their lives depending on how much they smoke and for how long. An interesting study out of Oxford University highlights the importance of quitting regardless of your age. The study followed 35,000 doctors over the course of 50 years. As I just mentioned, the long-term smokers died an average of ten years sooner than their non-smoking colleagues. But the study also shows that quitting can put years back onto your life expectancy! Quitting between the ages of 30 and 60 can add anywhere from 3 to 10 years back to expected life span. Life expectancy has increased dramatically over the last century, but that trend does not hold true for folks who insist on making smoking a part of their lives!
