Hookah Smoking Increasingly Common Among First-year College Women

July 18, 2012   According to a researchers from the The Miriam Hospital’s Center for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine, nearly 25 percent of college women try smoking tobacco with a hookah, or water pipe, for the first time during their freshman year. According to researchers, there may be a possible connection to alcohol and marijuana use. They found the more alcohol women consumed, the more likely they were to experiment with hookah smoking, while women who used marijuana engaged in hookah smoking more frequently than their peers. Researchers surveyed 483 first-year female college students about their precollege hookah use. The women were also given 12 monthly online surveys about their experience with hookah smoking. Of the 343 participants who did not report precollege hookah use, 23 percent (79 students) tried hookah tobacco smoking during their first year of college.
