Running group can help you to quit smoking

Hindustan Times and various media outlets reported on a UBC study that found half the people who completed a running program were able to successfully quit smoking. Participants showed improved mental health and lower average carbon monoxide levels.

Carly Priebe, a UBC postdoctoral fellow who analyzed the program, said results show a community-based exercise program can be an effective aid for smokers who want to quit.
