Abstract

Successful smoking cessation is a problem for many smokers and the 1-year quit ratio among smokers is <1%.1 Women may have lower cessation and higher relapse rates than men2 and their risk for developing heart disease and lung cancer has increased significantly in recent years.3 Physical activity offers a healthful alternative to smoking: it facilitates regulation of body weight,4 moderates mood changes5 and improves responses to stress.6.
