ABSTRACT

As cigarette smoking during college years could affect the entire lifespan, it is important to help establish a healthy lifestyle by correcting their unhealthy smoking habits. The purposes of this preliminary study were to examine the differences in smoking cessation motivation and perceived competence between quitters and non-quitters after the smoking cessation program and to identify factors associated with the program success in college students. A cross-sectional descriptive study was used to examine a total of 51 college students who participated in the 6-month on-campus smoking cessation program. The rate of successful smoking cessation was 35.3%. Quitters and non-quitters showed differences in the number of cigarettes per day, nicotine dependence, and perceived competence. The factors associated with success in smoking cessation include perceived competence and the number of cigarettes per day, which should be effectively incorporated into the smoking cessation program in college students.
