Abstract

This study was carried out from 15 February 2007 to 02 January 2008 to evaluate the effect of Transtheoretical Model-based education given to high school students for smoking cessation. The population of the study consisted of 90 students who study at the 1st and 2nd years of a high school in Erzurum and who smoke. The sample of the study included 75 volunteer students: 15 students in total are excluded from the study. The remaining 60 students were divided into the experimental (n = 30) and control (n = 30) groups using the simple random sampling method. The students in the experimental group were given Trans-theoretical Model-based planned education, and students in the control group were not given any education. As a result of last tests of the experimental and the control groups, it was observed that there was a statistically significant difference between measurements of "Social interaction and habit strength" (p = 0.003), which is a subscale of it and "Temptation scale total score" (p = 0.004), "Being able to cope with the social environments and negative sense (p = 0.03), "Being able to cope with the habit strength" (p = 0.001), which are subscales of "Self-efficacy scale", "Processes of change scale" total score, and its subscales: "Conscious raising" (p = 0.006), "Dramatic relief" (p = 0.001), "Environmental reevaluation" (p = 0.035), "Self-reevaluation" (p = 0.007).
