ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine impulsivity and self-efficacy according to Nicotine dependency among middle-school male smokers and to identify their relationships, which can provide the basic data to design an effective smoking cessation program. The self-report questionnaires were completed by 207 male middle-school smokers. It is found that impulsivity and self-efficacy vary significantly by the level of nicotine dependence (F=6.81, p=.001, F=50.90, p<.001). The results indicate that a higher dependence to nicotine is associated with a higher impulsivity but a lower self-efficacy. This finding suggests that a smoking cessation program should be developed as an intervention to reduce adolescent’s impulsivity and to promote self-efficacy.
