It's Never Too Late To Quit Smoking, Even In Your 60s

Smoking is an extremely harmful habit. In fact, it is so damaging that some are resigned to the toll it takes on their health and feel there is no reason to quit. A recent study covered by NPR provides a ray of hope and an incentive for such long time smokers. There are benefits to be derived from quitting smoking after the age of 60.

Smoking has been a health scourge for generations and has killed millions worldwide. It is the leading cause of preventable death, accounting for 1 out of every 5 deaths in the U.S. Smoking can damage your DNA for decades but this is no reason to postpone quitting.

I believe the "secret" to quitting smoking is to get healthy first, which will make quitting much easier. Exercising is part and parcel of this plan, as research shows people who engage in regular strength training double their success rate at quitting smoking compared to those who don't exercise.

Healthy eating is another crucial aspect that can't be ignored. I recommend reading through my comprehensive free nutrition plan. It provides an actionable framework for adopting healthy eating habits. Two of the primary tenets are to never eat processed food and to prepare your own nourishing whole foods.

Developing a healthy emotional outlet can also aid your smoking cessation plan. I also recommend the empowering practices of the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). It can help clear out emotional blockages from your system (some of which you might not even realize are there), thus restoring your mind and body's balance and helping you break the addiction and avoid cravings.
