Quitting smoking is more difficult for women than men

New Delhi, Aug 16 (ANI): The findings of a new study done on more than 35,000 smokers found that even though women smoke fewer cigarettes than men but they are less likely to quit. The research was recently presented at ESC Congress 2021. Study author Ms. Ingrid Allagbe, a PhD student at the University of Burgundy, Dijon, France said: "In our study, women who used smoking cessation services had higher rates of overweight or obesity, depression, and anxiety compared to men and kicked the habit less often.” The study enrolled smokers aged 18 and older with at least one additional risk factor for cardiovascular disease: overweight/obese (body mass index [BMI] 25 kg/m2 or above); high cholesterol; diabetes; high blood pressure; history of stroke, heart attack or angina.
