Self Control Report Student: Professor: Course title: Date: Self control intervention to smoking cessation 1.0 Abstract Tobacco use causes many avoidable premature deaths annually. For many smokers, quitting tobacco use is not easy. This study aimed at establishing the efficacy of self-control, a behavioral intervention, in helping cigarette smokers change their behavior and quit tobacco use. One hundred and twenty four people took part in the study. Two groups were used. Participants in the intervention group received counseling on how to stop smoking and were taught self-control skills. Subjects in the control group received counseling on how to stop smoking but did not practice self-control. Participants in the 2 groups were monitored for 4 weeks. The findings showed that participants who exerted small acts of self-control were in actual fact more successful at quitting tobacco use compared to participants who did not. 2.0 Introduction Worldwide, smoking of tobacco is a major cause of avertable premature death. Although most tobacco users would like to quit smoking, the addictive and habitual nature of tobacco use actually make sit hard to stop. One billion people globally smoke in spite the fact that six million deaths every year are related to smoking (World Health Organization, 2011). Health-related quality of life and life
