"But surely most people who smoke, already know that smoking will probably be bad for them in health terms ? Most people who are very overweight, surely know that eating less would make them lose weight ?" probably most do, but the serious and very difficult challenges lie in finding ways of helping them to change their behaviour and prevent triggering or exacerbating serious health problems. to date no simple solutions to this have been found which is why people are still searching by trying to apply different methods of offering them help which is in the interests of the government and the population to reduce escalating healthcare costs now and in the future. Some of these methods may be of little help and others through through the trial and error of research processes lead to the development of more effective methods in the future. If nobody at least tries nothing will ever be achieved!
