[Best Syndication News] The cravings for nicotine which happen when you quit smoking cigarettes can be excruciating. One way to tame the cravings is to get exercising. This is what researchers from the university of Western Ontario Canada believe that exercise is an important tool in helping a person to quit smoking for good.

Dr. Harry Prapavessis, Director of Western's new Exercise and Health Psychology Laboratory, and his team (Dr. Anita Cramp, Dr. Mary Jung and Therese Harper) have found that a combination of nicotine replacement therapy and physical fitness are both key elements to break the bad habit.

The benefit of exercise with quitting smoking is that there was less weight gain seen with women smokers. While 70 percent of the women in their study of 12 week program to quit smoking succeeded, only 27 percent kicked the smoking habit in the long run. The reason they believe the women had relapse was because they did not continue exercising after the program ended.

The research will continue on how exercise can help aid smokers to quit smoking.
