Bigger paychecks can help you quit smoking

New Delhi, Sept 3 (ANI): What if we say that your income affects your smoking habits? A new study has revealed that a raise in pay wages, can lead to about a five percent drop in smoking rates, and also improve their overall chances of quitting smoking. Researchers from University of California said their findings were especially important as inflation-adjusted wages for low-income jobs had been dropping for decades and the percentage of workers in low- paying jobs had been growing nation-wide.

The study revealed that the role of wage increased on reducing smoking among men and the less educated. The researchers also found that smoking rates for women were not influenced by wages, and that smoking rates for men were not influenced by additional household income.
