Background and Objective: The Tobacco use is recognized as a global health problem. Considering the high prevalence of hookah consumption among college students and its risks and negative consequences on the human health, this study aimed to investigate the factors related to hookah consumption among college students of Asad abad city base on the theory of planned behavior (TPB).
Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out on 400 students of Asad abad universities between 2015 and 2016. The method was multi-stage sampling and the questionnaires were completed as a self-report. The data-gathering tools consisted of a questionnaire based on the TPB construct and demographic variables. The data were analyzed by SPSS-16 software with linear and logistic analysis.
Results: The mean age of participants was [3/3 ± 72/22] years, the results showed that the prevalence of hookah consumption was 32% among students. In addition, among the variables of planned behavior theory, perceived behavioral control and positive attitude towards the most powerful consumption, the predictors had the intention to use a hookah. In total, 78.5% of the behavioral intention variance was explained by the constructs of TPB. Behavioral intention (ß =0/489) was better predictive for manner camped to perceived behavioral control (ß =0/115).
Conclusion: Considering the effectiveness of the planned behavior theory to predict the hookah consumption, it seems that this theory can be used for planning to prevent the hookah and interventions among students. Training including all aspects affecting drug compliance is necessary.

Keywords: hookah, theory of planned behavior, college students
