As if there aren’t enough reasons to quit smoking, a new study published in the journal Addiction Biology found that smokers don’t sleep as well as non-smokers [HuffingtonPost.com].

German researchers looked at the sleeping habits of 1,071 smokers and 1,243 non-smokers. They found that 17 percent of smokers reported sleeping six or less hours per night, compared to seven percent of non-smokers. In addition to getting less sleep, non-smokers slept less soundly with 28.1 percent of smokers reporting disturbed sleep quality compared to 19.1 percent of non-smokers.
