Mr Roberts is looking for participants for a study about the effect exercise has on tobacco withdrawals. Photo: SARAH MOYES Could exercise be the answer to successfully quitting smoking? Research fellow Vaughan Roberts and his team believe it could help. They know that exer- cise has a positive effect on withdrawal symptoms when people stop smok- ing. We are unsure what intensity of exercise is most beneficial and what the mechanism is behind it which makes exercise work,'' Mr Roberts says. Researchers at the Clinical Trials Research Unit and the Depart- ment of Sport and Exer- cise Science at Auckland University are undertak- ing a clinical trial to find out about the effect exer- cise has on tobacco with- drawal symptoms. The trial is looking for 50 smokers, who don't usually do regular exer- cise, to come into the Tamaki campus lab and participate in small bouts of exercise. The volunteers, who must be between 18 and 70 years old, will be recruited and screened for eligibility. Participants will then be asked to attend three study days where they will take part in 15-minute bouts of exer- cise on a stationary bike. The unit is a group of health researchers with an international repu- tation for studies into the causes, prevention and treatment of leading health problems. Cessation smoking is a major part of the research undertaken. This study is focused on the immediate effect exercise has on with- drawal symptoms. People interested in quitting smoking will be offered support at the end of the study. Email Vaughan Rob- erts on v.roberts@ctru .auckland.ac.nz or call 373-7599 ext 84718 to apply for the study.
