When your dreams go up in smoke

Cigarettes are well known for having hazardous and potentially fatal effects upon smokers’ health – and now the tobacco product is also being linked to ruining sleep patterns.

A German study found that 45 per cent of smokers experience less quality sleep than non-smokers, even after other factors such as stress have been taken into account. They also discovered that the number of cigarettes smoked will have a detrimental effect on rest.

Researchers have suggested that the stimulating effects of cigarette consumption and a wider range of lifestyle factors could be behind smokers’ lack of sleep.
