Breaking Bad Habits
  Limiting Alcohol
Alcohol may have some benefits for your heart, but it may also lead to abusive drinking and other diseases.
  Quitting Smoking
Cigarette smokers are two to four times more likely to develop coronary heart disease than nonsmokers. Smoking also doubles the risk for stroke.
  Managing Stress
High levels of cortisol from chronic stress can increase blood cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure. These are traditional risk factors for heart disease.
