Exercise Reduces the Urge to Smoke

,

Craving a cigarette? Try hitting the gym. Researchers found that short bouts of exercise reduce people's desire to smoke, by a large amount. It's unclear why this works so well, though it may be that exercise acts as a distraction or boosts the mood without nicotine. The evidence suggests aerobic exercise may kick cravings better than strength training, but more research is needed for verification.
