New Delhi: Hit the gym instead of smoking to slim and trim, advises Bollywood actress Sameera Reddy, a day ahead of the World No Tobacco Day.
Sameera, a non-smoker, also feels that women who smoke to remain fit should change their approach as "there is no substitute for a good diet and exercise".
"Make the decision to quit and then stick to it. Stay strong, I have seen many of my friends go through nicotine withdrawals and it`s not easy but totally worth it in the end," Sameera said in a statement.
"Do some yoga, practice some deep breathing and if the cravings get too much use a nicotine chewing gum or patch but don`t give up and go back to smoking," she added.
The actress has featured in films like ‘No Entry’, ‘Race’ and ‘De Dana Dan’.
