Smokers Have More Trouble Sleeping

A new study shows that smokers are four times more likely to have trouble sleeping than non-smokers.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins compared the EEG sleep signals in the brains of dozens of smokers with the same number of non-smokers. They found that smokers had trouble falling asleep and spent less time in a deep sleep.

Researchers believe the nicotine in cigarettes stimulates the brain, making it harder to wind down at bedtime.
