Smoking is a chronic addiction that can lead to a number of costly consequences further down the road. In addition to a long list of potential health complications for smokers and their loved ones, according to the American Lung Association, “Smoking cost the United States over $193 billion in 2004, including $97 billion in lost productivity and $96 billion in direct health care expenditures, or an average of $4,260 per adult smoker.” Quitting smoking can be both one of the hardest and most rewarding things a person can do and, as an employer, you can help.
