UK aims to add health alerts in cigarette packs

The objective is to motivate more smokers to quit by informing them about the potential enhancement in life expectancy and the possibility of saving around £2,000 annually if they kick the habit.

Under consideration is a plan that involves placing inserts inside both cigarette and hand-rolling tobacco packaging. These inserts would contain positive messages designed to encourage individuals to quit smoking and direct them toward advice and support resources.

These messages will outline the various health advantages of quitting smoking. For instance, they will highlight improvements in breathing within a short span of time and a 50% reduction in the risk of a heart attack within a year. Furthermore, they will illustrate the potential financial savings that can be accrued by quitting, with an average individual expected to save over £2,000 each year upon quitting smoking.
