  • 1. Tobacco Free is the Way to Be! By Christopher Malbon
  • 2. The Goal
    • To end my use of tobacco products by January 30, 2011.
    • Why? Because tobacco is bad for my health.
    • How? Not allowing myself to purchase it,
    • and asking those using it to please not
    • use it around me. Also, rewarding myself
    • with chocolate for each craving ignored.
    • Week by week, until I go an entire week
    • without using.
  • 3. Factors Involved
    • I began using tobacco in high school.
    • My friends use tobacco.
    • Tobacco is used socially by almost all of my acquaintances: it will be very difficult to avoid those using it.
  • 4. Factors Involved (part II)
    • My friends use, but they could encourage my success if I ask them to help. In this sense, they are both enablers and a support system.
    • My family staunchly supports
    • my quitting .
  • 5. Records
    • My plan was to reduce my usage week by week. Here is how it went:
    • Week 1: Used 3 times: once after dinner, twice while out with friends.
    • Week 2: Used 1 time: once while out with friends.
    • Week 3: Have not used. (as of 1/20/2011)
    • Week 4: ~
  • 6. Evaluation
    • After almost 3 weeks, I believe I am truly kicking the habit.
    • All times that I have used, have been times
    • that I was with friends who were using;
    • stronger support from them and will from
    • me should allow me to avoid using tobacco
    • around them.
    • The chocolate reward hasn’t really been
    • useful - chocolate melts in your pocket - so
    • I will most likely remove that from my plan.
    • To continue my success I will have to stay committed to my goal and eventually spread my goal over longer time periods.
