Have you opted against quitting smoking because you find it to be better for your mental health? It's time to rethink that argument! The latest research has found that quitting smoking is actually linked to better mental health! You can reduce feelings of depression, anxiety, stress and improve your quality of life by ditching the cigarettes.

The (basic) science behind the research: there is a common relationship between anxiety reduction and smoking because smokers have an addiction to nicotine. This creates an urge or craving to smoke, which is experienced as anxiety, depression and irritability which is relieved by smoking. However, when you quit smoking and overcome this addiction, the cravings go away along with these negative feelings.
