I think women are more likely to use cocaine for weight control.

#1 -- incorrect use of temporal modifiers. In this case "while" as in "While men were more likely to be presented with opportunities to use cocaine ..." Should be easy enough to change the "whiles" to the correct "although".
#2 -- an 88% survival from year 1 to year 4 deserves a better explanation of the recruitment procedure -- perhaps the school in question is a nunnery.
#3 -- Just a handful of users (10 - 19) and check out the cryptic and hidden bote to Table 1, In every year there were individuals who used cocaine without being given the opportunity to use in that same year;" tough to trust the data.
