Basic bribery can encourage a smoker to quit the habit.

A bribe can force a smoker to give up cigarettes. Scientists made this conclusion by analyzing the data of 16 experiments in which people were bribed with money, lottery tickets, coupons. In response, they were required to change their habits. The very idea of ​​getting quick money, even a small amount, attracts many people, notes The Daily Mail.

By the way, financial incentives can also push for training, regular rest and medical examination. From the point of view of efficiency, both large and small amounts were the same. At the same time, such bribery of smokers will cost less than treatment, experts calculated.

If smokers took part in such projects, they were twice as likely to quit smoking for six months compared to smokers who went to counseling about addiction recovery methods. Stimulation increased the likelihood of changing a person’s behavior by 62%. By the way, fines for non-compliance with regulations also worked well.

True, incentives eventually lost their power if no more money was given. Some experts suggest replacing money with supermarket coupons.

First of all, it will attract people with low socioeconomic status.
