  Quitting smoking reduces anxiety

  Smokers who successfully quit feel less anxious afterwards - despite the belief that smoking relieves stress, researchers say.

  研究人員說,雖然一般認為吸菸可舒緩壓力,但吸菸者成功戒菸後,反而比較不會覺得緊張。

  The British Journal of Psychiatry study followed nearly 500 smokers attending NHS stop smoking clinics in England. It found a "significant" decrease in anxiety levels among the 68 smokers who had quit after six months.

  「英國精神病學期刊」刊登的這份研究,追蹤在英格蘭前往「國民保健服務處(NHS)」戒菸診所的近500名吸菸者。研究發現,68名在6個月後戒菸的吸菸者,緊張感「顯著」降低。

  The effect was greater among those who had mood and anxiety disorders than those that smoked for pleasure.

  戒菸對有情緒與緊張失調者的影響,比為了愉悅感而吸菸者來得大。

  The researchers - drawn from several universities including Cambridge, Oxford and Kings’s College in London - said the findings should be used to reassure smokers attempting to quit that concerns about increased anxiety levels were unfounded.

  選自劍橋、牛津與倫敦國王學院等大學的研究人員說,這項研究發現應該被用以讓嘗試戒菸的吸菸者保證,戒菸會增加緊張感的憂慮沒有根據。
