Addiction screening questionnaire, Addiction severity Index (ASI), military duty status, and demographic questionnaire were used for data gathering.Results: current prevalence rate of smoking’ among soldiers has been reported 10.6% and with considering soldiers having consumption in the past, 22% of them have smoking experience.
