    Of 50 studends surveyd, 40 have said yes to eitther smoking or drinking in the past or who still use.
    4 said they used to use but found it not worth thr trouble and have not continued use
    And 6 students have never used.

    Most of the students in our school matched the results in the national survey.

    It does go to show how many students are beginning to expiriment.
