Somehow, I don't think that's just a correlation. They should quit it
cold turkey. I did it some ~15 years ago, and it did me plenty of good. 
Now, there are more interesting things than ever, but even less hours
to the day.

Do you manage to get your daily literature covered? I'm lagging badly,
especially since no longer commuting by train. I still lose 100 min/day,
but at least it's biking across mostly dirt roads in the forest.
