A new anti-smoking campaign, which starts just a month before all cigarettes have to be sold in plain packaging, is targeting pregnant women and indigenous Australians.

Everyone dreads old age. No one wants wrinkled skin, bad sight, diminishing body strength, and worst of all, the plethora of diseases that entail old age. A new study suggests that life can really begin at 40, if only one could quit smoking, limit alcohol intake, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and workout. In other words, simply follow a healthy lifestyle. Researchers conducted a study for 16 years that looked at the benefits of certain good habits that one could have during old age.
People who have tried quitting smoking know that it takes not one or two but multiple efforts to finally kick the butt. Also, it's usually not just one way that works at the first time. People try different measures various times to be finally able to get rid of the cancer stick addiction.

While most of the smokers already know what they might face in future because of their dangerous habit, they choose to avoid thinking about the future consequences and carry on with it, anyway. A new study by researchers has shown that smokers more oriented towards planning their future are more likely to stop smoking.
