"I never thought I'd be able to quit smoking. Thanks to Pritikin, I've quit FOR GOOD. My past smoking life is a distant memory that will never return. Pritikin should be sold out on its smoking cessation program alone. I know of no other program where people can stop smoking and lose weight at the same time.", Charles Krobot, NY.
As little as five minutes of moderate exercise, such as walking, can help smokers quit by reducing cravings for a cigarette and symptoms of withdrawal, according to a new study.*
“I really want to quit smoking. Do you have any tips for handling urges?”
An excellent anti-aging strategy may be staying thin and staying away from cigarettes, concluded new research.* Among more than 1,100 women studied, the white blood cells of those who were obese or smoked were “older” than those of normal-weight and nonsmoking women.
