Another benefit if you quit smoking is found. Not only will you be healthier physically, your psychological conditions also could be better. According to a recent study, quitting smoking can reduce the neurotic nature or often complain and the nature of impulsive or temperamental.
A research conducted by Andrew Littlefield of the University of Missouri, United States, found that when a person is more emotional, more sensitive, and anxious, they also tend to smoke. This study compared smokers and someone who had stopped smoking, aged between 18 to 35 years.
“Smokers at the age of 18 have higher levels of impulsivity than someone who does not smoke at the same age. Then, those who quit smoking significantly reduced impulsive nature between the ages of 18 and 25,” Littlefield said, according to the NY Daily News.
For older smokers, according to Littlefield, smoking becomes part of a regular pattern of behavior. It is driven by habit, desire, and tolerance and not the nature and impulsive personality. Another fact found that quitting smoking or even just trying to stop, can make you feel better.
The study, published in the Nicotine and Tobacco Research analyzes the symptoms of depression in people who are trying to quit smoking. Interestingly, subjects described themselves as never been as happy as when successfully quit smoking.Tagged with: Quit Smoking, smoking, stop smoking, temperament,
