Australian scientists have established the most likely to smoke large quantities of cigarettes men experiencing at work is constant stress. In total, the experiment involved more than a thousand men.
Scientists have deduced one of the main criteria influencing the habit of Smoking: more than 50 hours a week. Note, the standard work week consists of 35-40 hours. Approximately 70% of avid workaholics admitted that he started Smoking since he came to work.
There are two more important factors: stress and tension at work. Firefighters, paramedics and representatives of many other specialties trying to relax with a cigarette smoked at the time of the minute break.
However, this method did not contribute to the relaxation, the scientists conclude. Cigarettes soon after the formation of habits become an additional stress factor and lead to increased risk of developing many diseases from heart attack to lung cancer.
