Stress Causes an Increase in Tobacco Consumption amongst Ole Miss College Students

Finals week is approaching and due to upcoming exams,  the college students at the University of Mississippi's stress levels are at their highest. Many individuals start smoking in their teens and become addicted throughout their adult years. Anxiety, stress, and peer pressure are a few of the number of reasons students may partake in tobacco consumption when they are in college.
