If you still smoke, make this the year you resolve to quit.

I’m Laurie Edwards-Tate with LifeCycles. Some seniors who smoke think there is no point in quitting because the damage is done. Not true.

A recent national study shows that even at older ages, people who quit can improve their health enough to stop taking certain medications. They may even slow down dementia. They may have better and possibly longer lives. Even a month without cigarettes can significantly lower blood pressure. Medicare cover smoking cessation plans.

If you are open to quitting, it is one of the single best things you can do for your health, at any age. It is NEVER too late!
