St. Pierre, Richard; Eddy, James
Guidelines for establishing behavior modification programs for smokers are discussed. The phases for dealing with this problem behavior are presented as: (1) identification of the specific behavior; (2) recognition of learned behavior and cues that stimulate the behavior; (3) establishment of positive reinforcement to strengthen new behavior, including self control procedures; and (4) methods for supporting and monitoring the new behavior. Key principles for reducing smoking behavior are summarized in the conclusion. (HLM)
