Quitting remains the only way
There’s a common belief that reducing the number of cigarettes per day necessarily means fewer risks for heavy smokers. Heavy smokers meaning persons that smoke more than 15 cigarettes a day. After all, one pack a day must be better than two packs a day.

Most people I know who smoke, even if not willing to quit, have moments when they are worried about smoking effects on their health. When I was smoking, I sometimes had the same issue. So cutting back on number of smoked cigarettes becomes a goal. It eases your mind and has some impact on your budget. And it looks like no more good would come of such a policy.

Recent studies show that quitting remains the only way to reduce risks. A long-term Norwegian study, of more than 51,000 men and women aged between 20 and 34, found stubbing out was the only way to cut the risk. More information on the study, published in the Tobacco Control journal, here.

    When asked, I could never tell why I started smoking. That's why I also stopped. No good can come out of it in my opinion.

    I started because it was cool. I stopped when it became uncool (from my point of view). And yes, no good can come out of it.

    Alina, thanks for posting about this. I lost my mom to lung cancer. She was a heavy smoker. I think if people could see how much suffering that type of illness causes they would be more inclined to quit. :-)

    Sorry to hear about that! I can only imagine how hard that must be! My parents are both heavy smokers and I do fear for them sometimes.
