Promise of Cash Prompts Smokers to Quit

I like this article.

Mostly for this quote: "I think, in general, people have a lot of trouble making changes for the sake of delayed health benefits,".

I look back and wonder why I always thought I was invincible. And why I did such stupid things. Hindsight is 20/20 I guess. It's hard to know how valuable your health is until you lose it. Knowing what I know now, I'm still not sure how I'd successfully tell a 10-year-younger version of me not to smoke and eat/drink everything in sight.

I'd probably go for the money incentive :)
