So have you tried doing sport? It may not seem like it, but doing a physical activity will help you achieve your goal more easily and therefore definitively break your addiction to tobacco. We explain why.
Little by little, you'll combine the benefits of quitting tobacco with those of exercise: easier breathing and less breathlessness, better sleep, and general well-being from the release of endorphins in your body.
It's all good news!
If you're already sporty and a smoker, you'll no doubt have noticed your habit wreaking havoc with your training.
Smokers often lose their motivation to quit when they start gaining weight. It gives them another reason to turn back to cigarettes.
But by doing sport, you'll not only heavily limit any weight gain, but you may also find yourself a better sports user than you were before!
Provided that you do a physical activity several times per week, you'll lose fat and gain muscle.
The result will be a slimmer figure, without gaining weight.
Let's not kid ourselves: stopping smoking is much more complicated than it seems. And if you're reading this article, you're no doubt well aware of this!
Doing sport means you'll have a goal to achieve that will help you stick it out.
You'll keep your mind focused on positive things, such as your sporting objectives, and think less and less about tobacco.
You're now full of good reasons to definitively give up smoking.
However, before getting back into sport we recommend consulting your doctor to make sure you're in good shape and to avoid any potential problems. We're right behind you!
