This study was carried out in Khartoum State during April to June 2005. The blood pressure, blood glucose and blood cholesterol in smokers were measured. Fourty healthy males, their ages in range of 18 – 35 years were included in this study all of them were smokers. Two samples were taken from each smoker, one before the smoking as control and the other was taken 30 minutes after smoking of one cigarette to estimate the effect of smoking on the blood glucose and blood cholesterol.
