New Study Says Cutting Back Isn't Good Enough to Cut Risk

Some smokers may say they are cutting back before quitting.

A Norwegian study throws a kink in that plan. The new report in Tobacco Control says cutting back on the number of cigarettes smoked every day does not appear to cut back on a smokers risk of early death. 

They followed  more than 50,000 men and women for more than 20 years. The study says the effort to cut back may make the smoker feel better about their habit, but the only real way of reducing the risk of smoking related health consequences and early death is to kick the habit altogether.
