Compare differences between mean scores before and after the experimentation by paired t-test. Findings – All of 80 student participants were male. At 4th week after receiving the transtheoretical model for group counseling, the experimental group had a significantly higher mean score for decision balance, self-efficacy, and smoking cessation behaviors than before the experimental (p<0.05).
