    Abstract

    The quality of coping plans made to deal with personal smoking related risk situations and the relation between plan quality (PQ) and continued smoking abstinence (CA) were assessed. The respondents (N = 563) were smokers who had made a coping planning assignment in the experimental conditions of a larger randomized controlled trial. Descriptive and logistic regression analyses were conducted. The specificity of the plans made was related to short and long-term CA and was significantly lower for plans made to deal with situational situations. More research on how to foster specificity and target the difficulties that quitters have with specifying plans for affective situations is required.
