People given financial rewards to quit smoking are '50 per cent more likely to kick the habit'

People given financial rewards to quit smoking are '50 per cent more likely to kick the habit' People are significantly more likely to quit smoking if they get money for doing so, a study has revealed.

Researchers found quitters who were motivated with financial rewards are 50 per cent more likely to have kicked the habit after six months.

They said the NHS could save billions of pounds by using these incentives, such as cash or vouchers, to halt people's deadly addictions.

Interestingly, the amount of money people were getting didn't seem to make a difference. The Daily Mail
