A 2009 study offered smokers $100 for the completion of a smoking cessation
program, $250 for cessation within six months and an additional $400 for
remaining smoke-free six months after cessation. Six months after the program
began, the incentive group had participation and quit rates of 15.4% and
20.9%, respectively, versus 5.4% and 11.8% for the control group. Confirmed
quit rates at 9 and 12 months were three times greater in the incentive group
(14.7% versus 5%). Although cessation rates decreased over time, after 18
months, 9.4% of the incentive group remained smoke-free as compared to only
3.6% of the control group.
