Abstract This article provides an overview of the use of Roy's adaptation model when caring for a group of young women who were in the precontemplation phase of smoking cessation. The model served as a guide to assess each member's level of adaptation in each of the four modes to identify actual or potential adaptation problems and then examining the stimuli that influence those problems. Nursing interventions focused on approaches to the management of stimuli to promote adaptation for the group by helping the members move to the phase of thinking of quitting smoking.
