Abstract

Adolescence is a period associated with increased risk behaviors such as smoking, sex, fighting, the use of
sharp weapons and so on. These conditions coincide with changes in social and school environment. The
purpose of this study is to explain how health risk behaviors are to adolescents. The research design used

school adolescents with a total of 29,963 boys and girls, with a sample size of 395 using cluster sampling
