ABSTRACT
This study described the experience college students (age 18 to 24) had using a Web-based smoking cessation program. Data saturation was obtained through open-ended interviews (N=9). Data analysis used Colaizzi's technique and HyperRESEARCH� software. Primary themes identified were (1) helpful education; (2) using telehealth is an enabling experience; (3) mixed social and clinical support experiences; and (4) convenient and familiar format. Other themes involved smoking pattern changes and motivation to quit. The results of this study indicate that using an e-learning delivery format for smoking cessation is an accessible health education and communication option for health education providers.
