Stubbing out smoking in prisons: Bans are an ineffective mechanism

Alternative Law Journal
Volume 39 Issue 2 (Aug 2014)

Abstract: If you are a smoker, or imagine yourself to be one for a moment, how do you think you would feel if you were not allowed to smoke in your own home? Then add to this scenario that you have to spend the majority of your time in your home so you cannot distract yourself from the nicotine withdrawal symptoms1 by keeping busy at work, or going out to exercise; nor are you able to easily access a smoking cessation program or nicotine replacement therapies.
