dc.description.abstractThis study examined the personality characteristics, self-esteem, self-efficacy, coping types of groups of non-smokers, ex-smokers, and current smokers. The sample consisted of college students. No significant differences were observed between the three groups on self-esteem, self-efficacy, and coping types. No age effect was observed either. Significant differences were observed between smokers, and nonsmokers on extraversion, F (2, 122) = 5.1, p < .01. The hierarchical multiple regression model has found extraversion (b = .34, p < .001), neuroticism (b = .2, p < .05), conscientiousness (b = -.18, p < .05), and age (b = .34, p < .001) predictive of number of smoking cigarettes a day.
