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.

At times, smokers can also suffer from heart palpitations that can affect their overall quality of life.
