Study Shows Quitting Smoking Reduces Depression

Quitting smoking could help reduce depression symptoms, according to a new study. Researchers at Kings College London and Charles University performed a study on 3,775 patients at a stop smoking clinic in Czech Republic. Many of the patients reported symptoms of depression.

The study revealed that those who successfully quit smoking showed significant improvement of their depression symptoms. In fact, about 66% of those who reported moderate to severe depression said they had minimal or no symptoms one year after quitting.

Quitting Smoking Has Mental and Physical Benefits

Smoking is the biggest factor contributing to lower life expectancy for people with a mental health condition. Thus, quitting smoking could have have a twofold benefit for those struggling with depression.

“Research has long demonstrated the benefits of quitting smoking on a person’s physical health. Knowing that it can also improve one’s mental well-being should encourage those dealing with depression to take the steps to quit,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
