Résumé


The purpose of this article is to determine the profile of student smokers at the Assane SECK University of Ziguinchor. A descriptive cross-sectional study on smoking at UASZ was carried out from 5 March to 12 April 2021, on all student smokers enrolled from the Bachelor's to the Master's level, using an anonymous questionnaire. Our sample consisted of 54 student tobacco users, 27 of whom were regular and 27 occasional users. The results showed that the average age of the tobacco users was 23.43 years with a predominance of males (83.3% of cases), single (96.3%), enrolled in Bachelor 1 (37%) and living in the Dakar region (25.9%). The initiation of tobacco use is more frequent among adolescents aged 15 and 17, with 79.6% of cases having started before university, and is explained in part by imitation by family and friends (63% of cases). Smoking among friends was the most frequent initiating factor for student tobacco users. The average weekly expenditure on tobacco consumption was 850 FCFA, with extremes ranging from 0 to 2,500 FCFA.
