Abstract

Although the transtheoretical model of behavior change has frequently been used as a basis for smoking-cessation programs, in very few studies have the study variables been linked with the theoretical concepts. This study used a convenience sample of 79 current smokers to determine the relationships among the stages of change and the processes of change. Logistic regressions were used in order to determine whether certain processes were related to specific stages and whether specific processes were related to movement among the stages. Participants in the precontemplation stage and the preparation stage were found to rely on specific processes, whereas those in the contemplation stage did not.
