Abstract

This study was an effort to examine the cause/effect of goal setting and positive praise to decrease the amount of cigarettes a college student smoked per day. She was known to smoke cigarettes after completing daily activities such as eating, while driving, or during homework breaks. The researcher conducted an ABAB design in order to reduce and/or eliminate the number of cigarettes smoked in one day. The study results showed, in fact, that goal setting and positive praise did decrease the amount of cigarettes per day. The participant involved in this research study asked that her identity remain anonymous and it is my duty as a researcher and a CWU student to respect her wishes. Her identity will remain confidential.
