(PRWEB UK) 22 August 2013
According to an article published by the Telegraph on July 18, research has been conducted which found that individuals who have given up smoking are more likely to earn more money than others. Conducted by economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Julie L Hotchkiss and M Melinda Pitt, the study used information from the Tobacco Use Supplement of the US Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey from 1992 – 2011.
The research identified that members of staff who had quit smoking for more than a year earned the most money. They also discovered that smokers receive approximately 80% of the hourly wages of those who don’t smoke and, according to the Telegraph, “former smokers have a slightly higher average wage than non-smokers as a group.”
For those looking to stop smoking, a complementary therapy such as hypnotherapy can be an effective method to help quit the habit. The National Council for Hypnotherapy connects members of the general public with professional, skilled hypnotists throughout the UK who are qualified to help with a wide range of issues including stopping smoking. A representative commented on this recent news:
“It has been proven that using hypnotherapy to quit smoking can be an effective method over other techniques. Sessions of hypnotherapy can help you understand your motivation to stop and offer help in quitting smoking.”
