Cigarettes more likely to go because of kids



    Quitting for Baby's Sake
    The threat of harming your kid with second-hand smoke seems to be one of the most effective incentives for kicking the habit.

    Seems that breaking a bad habit for your own health doesn't work as well as doing it for someone else.

    New research from the New York State Department of Health found that smokers are 76 percent more likely to quit if they're living with a child, than if there are no children in the home.

    The research about the effects of second hand smoke on children, especially the young ones, include more respiratory problems, ear infections, bronchitis and pneumonia.
