Smoke so one bad habit that is difficult to stop. Will be more difficult the longer a person quit smoking. It is a dangerous thing.

For teens who are already involved in smoking habits can still be overcome. Before the age and difficult to stop.

According to a new study cited from MedicineNet, Thursday (18/04/2013), a small amount of daily exercise can help older smokers reduce or stop the dangerous habit.

Researchers observed 233 teens in 19 high schools in West Virginia that has the highest smoking rates in the country. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 13 percent of people under the age of 18 years in the state are smokers.

All the teens in the study who were daily smokers smoked an average of half a pack a day on weekdays and a pack a day on weekends. Plus other unhealthy behaviors.

"It's not unusual for adolescent smokers engage in other unhealthy habits. Smoking and physical activity, for example, often go hand in hand," said the study's lead author, Komberley Horn, also associate dean for research at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services, in Washington, DC in a campus news release.

The teens in the study were divided into three groups. One group took part in a smoking cessation program combined with a fitness program. Two groups took part in a smoking cessation program alone. And a third group heard only brief anti-smoking lectures.

All teens increase the number of daily physical activity only in the study. Teens who increased the number of days to exercise at least 20 minutes, equivalent to a short walk away, to significantly reduce the number of cigarettes smoked.

According to a study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health, teens are more likely to quit smoking if taking part in a smoking cessation program combined with a fitness program. By increasing the amount of exercise a day for at least 30 minutes.

"This study adds to the evidence that exercise may help teens who try to quit smoking," added Horn.
