It really is Never, Ever too late to give up smoking!

Older people can sometimes resign themselves to the fact that if they have not quit smoking at that point in their life, they never will.  Plus many feel that the damage is done, so why bother quitting at this late-a-stage-in-the-game.  New research is contradicting this mindset.  Researchers are suggesting that older American reconsider their perceptions and beliefs about their smoking.  See the article below – Breaking The Habit

“Older people who smoke may think there’s no reason to give up the habit. After all, hasn’t the damage to their bodies already been done?

But it turns out there’s a benefit to quitting even later in life. Research published Wednesday in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine finds that older adults who quit smoking in their 60s had a lower chance of dying in the years that followed than contemporaries who kept smoking.”
