Smokers get paid in Portugal

portugal pays smokers

If you are a smoker in Portugal, there might be some good news for you, according to officials from the Portuguese Health Ministry.

Smokers who are serious about kicking the habit usually go for consultations or seek medical treatment. These are usually subsidised for them in an effort to help them quit.

Now, a new advertising campaign is about to be launched by the Ministry which will see ex smokers reaping a monetary reward. That’s right; ex smokers will be paid cold hard cash for nipping their habit in the bud, literally. These smokers will only get paid after being clean for a certain amount of time.

This campaign is similar to the one running in Britain which warns smokers against the harm they are causing others.
