    Myth busted: Smoking can't relieve stress

    Contrary to the popular perception, smoking does not relieve stress, while quitting does, a study has found.

    UK researchers measured anxiety levels in almost 500 smokers - before and after they tried to give up and found the claims of benefits associated with nicotine are a myth.

    One in five people said they smoked to help them deal with stress, the Daily Mail reported. All took part in an National Health Service smoking cessation programme, which involved being given nicotine patches and attending two-monthly appointments.

    Six months after signing up for the course, 68 of the 491 participants were still abstaining - and they were less anxious than before.

    However, those who tried to give up and failed were more stressed than in the beginning, according to the findings published in the British Journal of Psychiatry.

    Really wonderful news to the smokers. But any amount of telling will not make them to stop unless smoking stop them to breath. thanks Vijigermany
