Is Exercise Important In Quitting Smoking?

Exercise plays an important role in helping you to quit smoking.

Research shows that smokers who take up a regular exercise program have a much higher quit-smoking success rate. The higher the level of activity, the higher the success rate. Smoking and exercise simply aren't compatible. A Gallup Poll found that smokers who exercised were twice as likely to quit smoking versus smokers who did not exercise.

Cigarettes do alleviate stress for many smokers. When you give up cigarettes, your stress level likely will rise. Exercise is an excellent stress reliever and can replace your dependence on cigarettes for stress relief. It is important to note that you can reduce your nicotine intake using electronic cigarettes.

The many positive effects of exercise are too numerous to mention or explain here. However, here is a list of some of the most common benefits of exercise:

  • Reduced stress

  • Increased feelings of well being and improved health

  • Weight loss

  • Improved muscle tone and physical appearance

  • Increased self-esteem and sense of accomplishment

  • Improved sleep Improved performance at work

  • Improved attitudes and disposition

To get started exercising you need to choose one or two activities that you enjoy. Common exercises include walking, jogging, biking, swimming, tennis, basketball, etc. You may even decide to undertake regular, strenuous yard work for your neighbours.

Try to exercise 20-30 minutes at a time, three to four times per week. If you are out of shape, give yourself time to work up to this regular exercise schedule. Consult your doctor before beginning your exercise program.

For many people, exercise is drudgery. Be sure you pick an exercise that you enjoy, and consider exercising with a buddy. Your buddy can encourage you to "keep moving" when you want to stop. You'll also be more likely to exercise when another person is depending upon you to be there.
