Smoking habits of King Saud University students in Riyadh



Smoking habits of King Saud University students in Riyadh



Annals of Saudi Medicine 11(2): 141-143



The smoking habits of 2264 students at King Saud University were investigated. Thirty-seven percent of the students smoked, and over a half smoked more than 15 cigarettes per day. Cigarettes were the main form of smoking. Most of the smokers knew about the hazards of smoking through the media and wished to stop smoking. Nonsmokers cited religious consideration and nonsmoking parents as the most important reasons for not smoking. A public health campaign is strongly recommended to reduce the prevalence of smoking.
