Abstract Self-efficacy expectations are important psychological determinants of smoking cessation. The present study aimed at exploring different sorts of self-efficacy. The following self-efficacy scales were composed: Emotional self-efficacy, Social self-efficacy, Skill self-efficacy, Relapse self-efficacy and Try self-efficacy. In a sample of 752 smokers with low motivation to quit, two subsequent self-report measurements of self-efficacy were conducted. Firstly, we investigated to what… 

The role of self-efficacy, recovery self-efficacy, and preparatory planning in predicting short-term smoking relapse.

Relapse at 1 and 3 months after the quit attempt was predicted by low levels of baseline self-efficacy, and the results suggest that more research is needed on the role of preparatory planning and recovery self- efficacy.

Prospective analyses showed that ROEs assessed at T1 predicted relapse reported at T2 over and above self-efficacy, and the influence of ROEs (and self- efficacy) on relapse was mediated by craving experience.

The Influence of Withdrawal Symptoms and Catastrophic Thinking on Smokers' Self-efficacy

A correlational study examining the relationships between reported withdrawal symptoms, catastrophic thinking about symptoms, general catastrophic thinking, self-efficacy concerning temptation, and self- efficacy concerning relapse found it was found that the withdrawal symptom score was correlated with temptation self- efficacy, but not relapse self-efficiency.

Day‐to‐day mastery and self‐efficacy changes during a smoking quit attempt: Two studies

It is demonstrated that mastery experiences and self-efficacy show a reciprocal relationship within smokers during a quit attempt in a day-to-day design, as well as contagion effects in couples when both partners try to quit simultaneously.

Self-efficacy and smoking cessation: a meta-analysis.

Although SE has a reliable association with future abstinence, it is less robust than expected and many studies may overestimate the relationship by failing to appropriately control for smoking behavior at the time of the SE assessment.

Self-efficacy could change the value of the intention to quit smoking

This study aims to determine the relationship between selfefficacy and the intention to quit smoking. The study was conducted on 225 young adults, namely those aged 18-25 years. The data collection

Coping Skills and the Self-Efficacy of Substance-Using Women Versus Non-Substance-Using Women

Researchers purport that self-efficacy is critical for behavioral change. The theory of self-efficacy explains when an individual is able to attain awareness, lifestyle changes can occur and efforts

It seems that a relatively unsuccessful history of prior quit attempts reduces self-efficacy over quitting and strengthens the relationship of self- efficacy with the intention to quit.

A fine-grained analysis of the role of self-efficacy in self-initiated attempts to quit smoking.

Self-efficacy was predictive of smoking outcome, but there was considerable intersubject variability in the strength of the relation between efficacy and smoking behavior.

Self-efficacy as a predictor for the cessation of smoking: Methodological issues and implications for smoking cessation programs

Abstract A prospective study focused on self-efficacy as a predictor for smoking cessation. Subjects were 123 Dutch participants in a 3-week smoking cessation group program. Before and after

Self-efficacy, health locus of control, and smoking cessation.

Self-efficacy and relapse in smoking cessation: a replication and extension.

Self-efficacy may be defined as the confidence in one's ability to remain abstinent in a given situation, and successful interventions should increase a person's efficacy expectations to resist urges to smoke in various situations, and these altered expectations should predict follow-up maintenance or relapse.

Self-efficacy and social support as predictors of smoking after a quit attempt

Abstract The current study examined self-efficacy and social support as predictors of maintenance after an attempt to stop smoking. As in previous studies, self-efficacy at the end of treatment was a

Self-efficacy and relapse in smoking cessation programs.

Analysis of mood and efficacy data during follow-up indicated that relapsing subjects demonstrated aspects of a cognitive dissonance reaction and a personal attribution effect that were consistent with Marlatt's description of the abstinence violation effect.

The Role of Self-Efficacy in Achieving Health Behavior Change

This review focuses on cigarette smoking, weight control, contraception, alcohol abuse and exercise behaviors, and suggests strong relationships between self-efficacy and health behavior change and maintenance.
