    I would hope that there is a lot of support in place in addition to this. And the gift voucher is more a 'reward' to treat yourself. Not sure if that's insulting though. Sorry if it is as I am not trying to be.

    Geeze, the reward might be your healthy baby, your own health and longer life span. Smoking sucks, it's a sh1tty addiction many pick up under negative circumstances as a young person in life.

    I think it's a great idea and yes, financial incentive may help when the "invisible" incentive of good health/improved outcomes may fail. I hope it helps a few pregnant mums to quit for good.

    Shouldn't I get a reward for being healthy and responsible for not taking up a filthy habit in the first place? It's a crock to reward someone for giving up something they should have the courage, strength, willpower and common sense to think about doing if they really cared for the child's health they are carrying in the first place.

    I think it's sad that a woman would give up smoking for $50 more than for the health and safety of her child. That to me screams that she shouldn't be having children. I get that it's hard to quit smoking and that's why some can't even while pregnant.. but if you can give it up for $50 you can give it up for the health and safety of your child. Seriously.

    So you've never been a smoker I'm guessing?

    I'm supportive of the idea of a programme that will help a pregnant woman quit smoking for the health of her unborn child.

    As a non-smoker I don't begrudge them receiving some sort of reward-based incentive, but is a $50 voucher incentive enough to break an addictive habit? I don't think so.

    You do. Your insurance is cheaper for one thing.

    Then isn't the reward for smokers to not smoke a healthy baby too? Why do they need a shopping voucher? Maybe mandatory classes for those that smoke to be more educated on risks and maybe some helpful tips on quitting and some support? Instead of just giving store vouchers??
