Nabil, no -regress- is not suitable for serially correlated data.
Do you need serially lagged dependent variable(s) or are alternative
methods okay?
The references you provided referred to several habit persistence
models, which means I am still confused about what you want.
I suggest the time series command -prais- with the default option
rhotype(regress) which uses GLS rather than lagged dependent
If you need lagged dependent variables, consider -xtdpdsys-.
