The objective of our study was to assess the profile of dual and single smokers of both, waterpipe and cigarette, and evaluate whether a given type of smoking may be a gateway for the other. Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out, using a proportionate cluster sample of Lebanese students in the public and private universities. The questionnaire used in this study was composed of several parts, including the sociodemographic part and a detailed active and passive smoking history, in addition to items of the tobacco dependence scales for both waterpipe and cigarette.
