          Objective To understand the smoking of college students in Guizhou Province and to explore associated factors for better prevention and control of smoking behavior.

          Methods A multi-stage stratified random sampling method was used to describe the current smoking situation of college students. And 2 451 college students of different majors and grades from three cities with high, medium and low economic development levels were selected. Besides, we used multivariate logistic regression analysis to analyze the major factors affecting current smoking.

          Results Ever smoking rate of college students in Guizhou Province was 50.8%, the peak age of first smoking attempt was 8–13 (35.2%); current smoking rate of college students in Guizhou Province was 20.8%. Logistic regression analysis showed that male, upper grade, monthly living expenses of not less than 1 000 yuan, single parents, family smoking and peer smoking were the main risk factors affecting college students’ smoking ( OR = 5.52, 1.44, 1.48, 1.69, 1.47, 1.88, P<0.05).

          Conclusion College students in Guizhou Province have a higher rate of smoking attempt and low rate of current smoking, as well as low tobacco dependence which is determined by multiple factors. Tobacco hazard education, mental health education and living environment intervention for college students may help reduce the probabitity for tobacco use.
