Don't smoke and if you smoke already, do everything in your power to quit. Don’t buy into that my-granny-smoked-and-lived-to-be-90 crud – not even the tobacco giants believe it. Apart from the well-known risks of heart disease and cancer, orthopaedic surgeons have found that smoking accelerates bone density loss and constricts blood flow.

Take action: If you struggle to quit on your own, make an appointment with your doctor. Various types of therapies exist to help you kick the habit for good. And get the support of your family and friends – they'll carry you through when the going gets tough.
