A new survey reveals that people, who are involved in relationships, want their partners to quit smoking and lose weight, so that they can boost their health.
According to statistics disclosed by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), around 79% people with a smoking addicted partner revealed that they would like their partner to reduce on smoking or stop it completely. In comparison, 59% people revealed that they would like their partners to trigger off weight loss.
Statistics disclose that around 2.3 million people living in the UK are afflicted with heart diseases. In comparison to those who don’t smoke, people who are addicted to smoking, are 60% more at risk of dying from heart ailments.
Data released by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) state that asking the partners of smokers in a clear and straightforward manner was the most effective way to help them alter their behaviour.
