There’s only so much you can do to get through to smokers. Maybe this appeal to their personal pocketbooks will make a difference.
Direct your smokers to this tool. It’s a cost-of-smoking calculator, provided by Discovery Health.
It’ll show employees how big a chunk cigs take out of their wallets every week, month and year.
Example: At $5 a pack, a person who smokes 10 cigarettes a day will spend:
- $17.50 per week
- $75 per month, and
- $912.50 per year.
Who knows? Maybe the prospect of an extra $900 in their pockets will be enough to convince more employees to kick the habit.
