The intervention was developed in 12 weekly sessions of 50 minutes each, for 3 months, aimed at increasing the self-efficacy through strategies of education, motivation and handling emotions.

Results: There was an association between interventional group and high self-efficacy (P=.01) and the OR = 2.96, IC95%=1.28 to 6.84. There was an association between consumed cigarettes and intervention group (P= .0001); OR=0.2, IC95% =0.08 to 0.46.     
Conclusion: The interventional group improved significantly the level of self-efficacy and reduced consumption of cigarettes.
