The perception of barriers and benefits, or pros and cons’, are also found to differ between the stages; for example, an individual in the contemplation stage is likely to focus on both benefits of change and barriers to change, but barriers may be weighted more heavily e.g. even if I get healthier in the long term I am probably going to gain weight if I stop smoking’, whereas someone in the preparation stage is likely to focus more on the benefits of change e.g. even if I gain weight in the short term it will be worth it to start feeling healthier’.
