The subject of this study were 429 male and 375 female university students. 2. The smoking habit between male and female student showed significant differences (p=0.000). And the pack of cigarettes per day between male and female student showed significant differences ( p=0.000). And smoking duration between male and female student showed significant differences (p=0.000). 3. In case of male students, smoking habit among different sociodemographic factors showed significant differences in following variables; grade (p=0.001), age (p=0.000), religion (p=0.004), In case of female students, smoking habit among different sociodemographic factors showed significant differences in following variable; religion (p=0.007) 4. The BMI distribution between male and female student showed significant differences (p=0.000). 5.
