Kicking the Habit


Yet another reason to keep up your resolution to go cold turkey, especially if you have heart problems.

A new German study finds smokers who suffer a heart attack and survive benefit in the long run if they kick the habit after their attack.

In a study of 1000 patients, they found those who returned to smoking were more likely to suffer a second attack the following year than those who quit.

Statistics show giving up smoking reduces a heart patient's risk of suffering another attack by 40 percent.
