Applying the Transtheoretical Model of Behavioral Change to Reddit Data: A Pilot Study of Cessation Strategies and Outcomes among Tobacco Users

Authors: Danielle Mowery, Albert Park, Mike Conway
Comments: 6 Pages. Presented at UK HEALTHCARE TEXT ANALYTICS CONFERENCE APRIL 18-19, 2018, MANCHESTER, UK

Despite the existence of numerous studies demonstrating that tobacco use is strongly associated with cancer, heart disease, stroke, and other health problems, tobacco continues to be a major public health threat worldwide. Social media provides a rich resource for population-level, health-based monitoring and understanding of tobacco cessation efforts and trends. In this pilot study, we identified common and emerging tactics used by Reddit users for tobacco cessation and demonstrated that the Transtheoretical Model — an established and widely used behavioural change theory – could be leveraged to track and identify successful cessation of tobacco usage within this population.

Comments: 5 Pages. I will be grateful if you publish my work as soon as possible. It is really very important for me . lovelyadelya@gmail.com

lovelyadelya@gmail.com Evaluating a person, we note how much clothing corresponds to age, social status, fashion. Some people have a desire to be similar in clothes to those who matter, others use clothes as a way to stand out. This style, long possessed by Europe and America, is gaining increasing popularity among young people. This work will be useful and interesting in that it will allow teenagers to pay attention to the translation of inscriptions on their clothes, and ensure the correctness of the use of information that should reflect the true interests of the wearer with the inscriptions.
