Participating in the Great American Smokeout?Will you be participating in the Great American Smokeout? Recently the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reported that by smoking less, it shows you have better self control.

“Researchers say a form of Chinese meditation can help smokers reduce their craving and their cigarette use even if they hadn’t intended to.

At Texas Tech University, Yi-Yuan Tang looked at data on 27 smokers, of whom 15 got five hours over two weeks in Integrative Body-Mind Training, which includes relaxation, mindfulness and mental imagery.

Tang says the trained people wound up smoking less. “We find a significant reduction in smoking – around 60 percent, in daily cigarette uses.” And he says there was increased activity in parts of the brain associated with self-control.

The study in the Early Edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences was supported by the National Institutes of Health.”
