Abstract

This is a quasi-experimental study conducted on 200 men smokers living in Fasa City, Iran, in 2016. The data gathering tools consisted of five parts: demographical information; questions related to the construct of the stages of change model; assessment of behavioral and cognitive change processes; self-efficacy; the outcomes of smoking; and the obstacles in the way of continual use of smoking; and smoking cessation. The courses consisted of eight sessions each 55-60 min. After six months, data were collected once more by inviting the subjects to the clinics and asking them to fill out the questionnaires. Linear regression showed that the stages of change in variables, pros, cons, the age of starting smoking, experimental processes, and self-efficacy were the predictors of smoking. Moreover, comparison of the control and experiment groups with regard to the change stages before and after the intervention did not show a significant difference between the two groups before the educational intervention. However, we observed a significant difference between the two groups after the educational intervention. The findings revealed the efficiency of the educational intervention, based on stages of change model, in the form of increase in the number of cessation smoking attempts.
