The main reason that smokers want to quit is to improve their health. We all know that cigarettes are a right pain and lead to all sorts of diseases, including lung cancer.
By doing sport, you'll start taking better care of your body, which is poles apart from what you do when you smoke.
Little by little, you'll combine the benefits of quitting tobacco with those of exercise: easier breathing and less breathlessness, better sleep, and general well-being from the release of endorphins in your body.
It's all good news!
If you're already sporty and a smoker, you'll no doubt have noticed your habit wreaking havoc with your training.
Laboured breathing, longer recovery times, disappointing performances and discomfort and pain are all linked to doing sport as a smoker. By quitting, you'll gradually shake off these issues. What better motivation than seeing yourself improve?
However, before getting back into sport we recommend consulting your doctor to make sure you're in good shape and to avoid any potential problems. We're right behind you!
