SMOKERS are about 70 per cent more likely to suffer from depression.

    SMOKERS are about 70 per cent more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety than ex-smokers and non-smokers, a study has suggested.

RESEARCHERS said quitting smoking could help people combat anxiety and depression and improve mental health as they found that levels of anxiety and depression reported by long-term ex-smokers were indistinguishable from people who have never smoked and were much lower than current smokers.
The study of nearly 6500 people over the age of 40 found that 18.3 per cent of smokers reported suffering depression and anxiety compared with 10 per cent of non-smokers and 11.3 per cent of ex-smokers.

The research, described as the first of its kind to compare the prevalence of anxiety and depression in smokers, non-smokers, and long-term ex-smokers (smokers who have quit for longer than a year), dispels the commonly-held perception that lighting up helps relieves stress, those behind it said.
