Students in Slovenia reported substance use above the ESPAD average for four out of the eight key variables. Results for alcohol use in the last 30 days, heavy episodic drinking during the same period of time and lifetime use of cannabis in the Slovenian study all clearly scored above the overall average. So did lifetime use of inhalants, which was twice as common among the Slovenian students compared to the overall average (14 % versus 7 %). One measure showed a lower prevalence compared to the overall average, and that was lifetime use of tranquillisers or sedatives without prescription, which was 3 percentage points below the average in Slovenia. Cigarette use in the last 30 days, lifetime use of illicit drugs other than cannabis and lifetime use of NPS were either very close to or the same as the ESPAD average. In the ESPAD context the Slovenian students tended to have slightly more extensive substance-use habits, especially in relation to lifetime use of inhalants.
