TOO LATE TO QUIT SMOKING??

British Medical Journal

 Actually, it’s never too late to quit smoking. Even at age 60, those who stop smoking see their heart attack risks dramatically improve after just 5 years of being smoke free. We’ve known for years that it only takes 1 cigarette a day to cause fatal cardiac arrhythmias, so it’s not just a question of cutting back. The big problem is that smoking is very addictive and very hard to stop. Several prescription medications can be very effective, but I have found that you, the patient has to want to quit. It’s very hard to quit if you are motivated; almost impossible if you still enjoy smoking.
