Plain packaging as a nudge to quit smoking

Graham Watson

27th April 2017

This is a lovely article that suggests that the UK ban on branded cigarette packets could reduce the number of smokers by 300,000, if the measure has the same effect as it had in Australia. Research group, Cochrane believes that the packets might reduce the number of smokers by 0.5% and encourage a greater number of people to try and quit.
