Dangling enough dollars in front of smokers who want to quit helps many more succeed, an experiment with hundreds of General Electric Co. workers indicates.

Among those paid up to $750 to quit and stay off cigarettes, 15 percent were still tobacco-free about a year later.

The company I work for will pay for ANY method you need to use to quit.. 100% of the cost. You have to be smoke free a year and then they will give you the money.
