Quit smoking. Smoking results in the inner lining of the arteries, or the endothelium, getting damaged. The carcinogens and carbon mono-oxide present in cigarette smoke result in the arteries becoming more prone to spasms, thus leading to high levels of cholesterol in the blood. Cigarette smoking lowers a person's high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) or "good" cholesterol while raising levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) or "bad" cholesterol. At times, smokers can also suffer from heart palpitations that can affect their overall quality of life.
