Regular smokers exhibit higher and lower levels of stress and arousal,respectively,than nonsmokers,as well as higher impulsivity and neuroticism trait values.The research intended to find out the causes of smoking among the teenagers in University Technical Malaysia,Malacca (UTeM).The population of the research was comprised of all male and female students studying at (UTeM).The results show that there are various factors that cause students to smoking.Social,environmental,economic and emotional factors become the most important factor that leads students to start smoking.When they are unable to finding an appropriate way out for themselves,smoking becomes a main choice,even they know that smoking can cause a cancer.
