London: Smokers are more likely to doze off for less than six hours a day and have a `disturbed` sleep compared to non-smokers, a new study has claimed. Researchers from Charite Berlin medical school in Germany found that of nearly 1,100 smokers surveyed, 17 per cent got fewer than six hours of sleep each night and 28 per cent reported `disturbed` sleep quality. That compared with rates of 7 per cent and 19 per cent respectively among more than 1,200 non-smokers who were also surveyed, the Daily Mail reported.
