Smoking Menthol Cigarettes, Could Make it Harder to Kick the Habit

If you smoke menthol cigarettes, you may have a harder time kicking the habit.

Experts recently compared the health effects of menthol cigarettes to regular cigarettes and found they were equally harmful.

However, people who smoked menthols were less likely to quit smoking.

The study found nearly 70-percent of menthol users were still smoking 15 years after they started, which is compared to 55-percent of non-menthol smokers.

Researchers say switching to non-menthol cigarettes may make it easier to quit.
