In brief: Some ideas

Two things that may work are one: penalties/surcharges for unhealthy living choices(though it hasn't seemed to help too much with the tobacco tax) or significant benefits for healthy lifestyle choices(this is already happening in various health insurance organizations and job benefits).
Otherwise it's incredibly difficult. Always keep trying to get the good word out!

In brief: Responsibility

The hardest thing for some people to take is responsibility for their own health, as well as the health of the society in general.
We as healthcare providers need to do more as far as education goes, but people also have to realize that the consequences of poor lifestyle choices are a poorer quality of life for themselves, as well as higher healthcare costs for themselves and society.
