In today's health matters, combining counseling with physical activity may offer teens a more effective way to stop smoking.
Researchers assigned one group of teens to a quit smoking program and another to the smoking cessation along with a physical activity program.
By the end of three months, less than five percent in the quit smoking clinic-- quit. And 14 percent who did both were smoke-free.
Study authors say their findings show it's possible to intervene and help teens quit smoking.
Findings appear in the journal 'pediatrics.
