England’s Cheshire East Council Adult and Health Committee discussed during a meeting how they could reduce the number of smokers in the country.
in the report They presented, and indicated that smoking is the leading cause of cancer worldwide. It is also referred to as the leading cause of miscarriage, premature labour, stillbirth, and stillbirth.
In the locally autonomous region, about 10.5 percent of all residents smoke. 10.8 percent of pregnant women in the region reported having smoked at birth. According to the region itself, these numbers are as high or higher than the rest of the country.
The committee wrote that they now feel compelled to control these characters.
Cash prizes help
A comprehensive review of measures to help people quit smoking was conducted. What the committee found was that money in the form of cash or gift cards as a form of premium made smokers 50 percent more likely to quit than those who did not receive cash prizes.
Pregnant women who receive cash prizes are twice as likely to quit smoking as the control group.
According to the commission’s report, the number of smokers in England is stable. The commission also found that the number of smokers in Cheshire East was still worse than the national target.
Pregnant women should get the most benefit
In the effort to get as many people as possible to quit smoking, the committee presented three different alternatives. Two of these involve pushing smokers to quit for good.
The first option is to give all residents over the age of 18 who smoke a financial allowance to quit. To achieve this, they will start a pilot project where participants will be paid an amount of money in two different payments. It is suggested that 200 lbs be given to non-pregnant women, and 400 lbs to pregnant women.
The second option is to provide financial support to pregnant women only. With this variant, there will be a swatch-only demo project, but other than that it will be the same as the alternate project. The committee wrote that this would hit a smaller audience in Cheshire East. Thus it will be an advantage for those who meet, but it will miss the opportunity to meet the whole population.
The last alternative is not to implement a pilot project and therefore not make any financial donation. Thus, it will continue with the current plan to get the population to quit smoking.
