the heath behavior change that I use was The Health Belief Model is a theoretical example to direct efforts in the area of health promotion and disease prevention. It is used to understand and forecast changes in the actions of individuals. It is one of the most popular models of behavioral comprehension. My goal is to quit smoking Hookah, replacing smoking Hookah with nicotine replacement therapy product.  People will not change their health behaviors unless they believe that they are at risk. I feel I might be getting cancer in future because we have a cancer history family so, I used the health belief model to find the some kind of activity rather than smoking hookah.  My plan is by the end of the first week, I will decrease the number of hookah I am smoking from 5 per week to maximum of 2 or 3 per week. By the end of the second week, I will smoke 1 Hookah per week. For the first week I try to go running with my partner who help me to reduced smoking hookah, 20 minutes every day and going gym 3 times a week. For the second week I try to increase the time of running to 45 minutes and going gym with my partner who encourage me for running. Also, every time that I follow my plan and reduced smocking hookah by running I give my self protein shake as reward.
