The method used was the interview, type questionnaire hint of alcohol intake and various types of tobacco. Sixty days survey was conducted in Brazzaville setting (high school). It concerned 119 subjects aged 14 to 17 years old (63 boys and 56 girls). The interrogation focused on taking drinks and exciting products, the reasons which lead to take tobacco and strong wines. Anthropometric data were taken on all subjects. It appears from our results that a girl taking type of drinks was 19.64 and 42.85% for boys, the various types of tobacco among males was 7.93% of girls of 3.57%. The difference was not significant p>0.05. The reasons for taking strong drinks were for 53.57% for girls, it turns out to be insufficient in 20.63 per cent boys. The reasons for taking tobacco among males were 14.28 and 5.25% for girls. The level of alcohol and tobacco a risk and does not present the same similarities with the data from the international literature. To do this, there should be mechanisms upstream and downstream to influence these practices accordingly.
