If you're ready to give up smoking, will it be easier if you're a pack-a-day smoker or someone who only puffs a few cigarettes a day?
The answer, according to the journal Public Health Review, may surprise you.
Researchers at Ben-Gurion University in Beer Sheva, Israel, looked at the traits of people who were able to stop smoking successfully. And they found that those who had smoked more than 25 cigarettes a day were more likely to quit than those who smoked less.
When they looked at other factors, there were no differences between quitters and relapsers in marital status, age, education or nationality.
