Abstract

The results suggested similar tendencies for middle risk group and high risk group students for knowledge concerning smoking, recognition concerning smoking and intention to encourage others to stop smoking. Because the middle risk group accounts for about 20 percent of all students, it is necessary to consider the features of this group when developing additions to the current materials for smoking prevention classes in high schools.
