Background/Objectives: In this study, a survey was conducted to examine the factors associated with success and failure in smoking cessation among smoking cessation scholarship beneficiaries at N university. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The data were collected via structural questionnaires completed by 139 university students located in Cheonan who agreed to participate in this study from September to December 2015 and was analyzed using the SPSS 18.0 program. Findings: There were statistically significant differences among the scholarship beneficiaries who succeeded in quitting smoking in following areas: CO2 ppm, cigarettes smoked during the period, nicotine dependency, participation in regular smoking cessation education (including attendance at smoking cessation clinics and recognition of the need for followup programs), motivation, factors which allowed one to remain a non-smoker, symptoms, stress, and amount of regular exercise. Logistic regression analysis related to general characteristics shows that CO2 ppm (p<.001), participation in regular smoking cessation education (p = .002), attendance at smoking cessation clinics (p = .021), were shown to exert a significant influenced smoking cessation success. Logistic regression analysis related to smoking factors shows that need a follow up program (p = .035), direct health benefits (p = .034, weight gain (p<.001), improve self-confidence (p = .001), willpower (p<.001) and in-house smoking (p<.001) exert a significant influenced smoking cessation. Additional factors related to health such as alcohol consumption (p = .002), stress-relieving exercise (p = .028), and health screening check (p = .040) exert a significant influenced smoking cessation. Applicants/Improvement: The present findings suggest that conducting enhanced smoking cessation education programs is a good way to guide more students to smoking cessation success in the future.
