Purpose: The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of the smoking cessation program among military students in Taiwan. Methods: The experimental research design was used in this study. Totally of 65 volunteered college students were divided into teaching (N=25), teaching plus nicotine patch use (N=22), and control group (N=18) using Random assignment. The intervention for teaching group was given 4 weeks of 8 hours structured courses. The teaching plus nicotine patch use group included 4 weeks of 8 hours structured courses and nicotine patch use. The control group did not receive any intervention. A structured questionnaire and the CO concentration during expiration were used to be the outcome indicators. Measurement was done at baseline, after completion intervention and at one month after completion intervention. Data was analyzed using mean, standard deviation, frequency, percentage, Spearman correlation, Wilcoxon signed ranks test, and Kruskal-Wallis test. Results: The major findings were that the smoking cessation program could significantly improve smoking attitude, refusing smoking self-efficacy, quit smoking intention and decrease students? cigarettes per day in both intervention groups.  There was a positive effect on improving self-efficacy to refuse the lure of smoking, and students? cigarette per day, and the mean difference of baseline and 1-month or 2-month follow up were significant between three groups (teaching plus nicotine use>teaching>control). Conclusions: The findings suggested that the smoking cessation program will be the reference of the future related studies among adolescences.
