In scientific literature, it is stated that the outcome expectations are the beliefs of the consequences of smoking and are associated with the maintenance of tobacco consumption. This research aimed to evaluate the prediction level of tobacco consumption expectations regarding the consumption pattern in people who received a telephone intervention to quit smoking. 21 people interested in quitting smoking participated (11 men and 10 women) with an average age of 33.29 (13.46) years to which it was applied the Consequences of Consumption and the Retrospective Baseline (LIBARE), subsequently received the cognitive behavioral proactive telephone intervention and the consequences of consumption questionnaire was reapplied and a monthly follow-up, at three and six months after the end of the intervention. The analysis of Spearman correlation showed that the expectation of the initial negative social impression is associated with the final consumption pattern (r=0.436, p=0.048), initial social facilitation with the consumption pattern, and 1-month follow-up (r=0.466, p=0.018). The analysis of simple linear regression, performed with the associated variables, showed that the consequence of initial social facilitation achieved to predict the consumption pattern in the follow-up up to one month (F(1)=9.162, p=0.007), with a percentage of variance explained of 32.5%. In this case, the higher the score in the consequence of social facilitation, the greater the probability that the consumption pattern rises in this evaluation (B=0.065, 95%IC from 0.020 to 0.110). Therefore, it is indispensable to include a factor in the interventions for smoking quitting where the positive beliefs that are held regarding the consequences of tobacco consumption are worked on.
