Exercise makes you want to stop smoking17th November 2009
Researchers at the University of Exeter have suggested that taking some moderate exercise could have an effect on decreasing smokers' desire to have a cigarette.
In a study, 20 smokers were requested not to smoke for 15 hours and were then shown some "smoking-related or neutral images". Some of the group rested and some spent 15 minutes using an exercise bike, before they were shown the images once more. The group who participated in exercise spent 11% less time looking at the images.
