This quasi-experimental research aimed to examine effect of the intervention for smoking cessation on quit smoking behavior among older persons with pulmonary tuberculosis. Using a purposive sampling, 60 older persons with pulmonary tuberculosis were recruited from Nopparat Rajathanee Hospital. The study samples were divided into a control group (n =30) and the experimental group. The control group was given conventional nursing care, whereas the experimental group was given brief advice for smoking cessation and referred to Thailand National Quitline for intensive counseling. The instruments for data collection were the demographic data form, the Fagerstrom test for nicotine dependence, and the smoking cessation behavior questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and inferential statistics (t-test). The results showed that after the intervention, the mean scores of smoking cessation behavior in the experiment group were significant higher those before the intervention and the control group (p-value <0.05). In addition, a reduction of cigarette smoked per day in the experimental was higher than that of the control group (p-value < 0.05)
