    Congrats on stopping the smoking! Your heart is thanking you for giving it a break. It now does not have to work so hard to pump O2 into the rest of your body. As for working out! Again, congrats, now you are making it easier for the heart to pump again and creating more vascular pathways. Athletes generally have nice slow heart rates so it is not a problem.
    PS– now try to get away from the coffee
    Good luck trouper!

    yes it will..

    also smoking causes an irregular heart beat.. in fact the dirty little secret is, smoking kills more from cardiac damage, than cancer.. staying clean from nicotine will help your circulation too..

    the good news is that i now have been quit for over 5 years.. i quit trying to quit alone, and joined a support group.. i attend nicotine anonymous meetings both locally and on line.. on line voice meetings are he as close as your computer, and you can attend while still smoking, before actually attempting a quit.. however you decide to quit good luck, there is simply no wrong way to quit!!
