Traces the short history of women's smoking, presents information and interpretation of trends and offers possible explanations of women's smoking. This action handbook is a guide to help groups and agencies understand women's tobacco use. It can be a source of information, a guide to action, or an aid in cessation programming. By exploring the idea that women's tobacco use is related to women's experience, it presents a fresh perspective on the issue.

Article appears in the Spring 1996 issue of Canadian Journal of Nursing Research (Vol. 28, No. 1). Identifies social-psychological factors associated with smoking and smoking cessation among disadvantaged women. Individual and group interviews were conducted with disadvantaged women in Atlantic Canada. Participants were predominantly poor, unemployed, geographically isolated, and single parents. The factors associated with smoking included coping with stresses, loneliness, powerlessness, low self-esteem, social pressures, and addiction. Support from peers (ie, women in similar circumstances) and partners was considered important. Health professionals and traditional cessation programs were not perceived as supportive. Participants viewed women's centres and women's agencies as appropriate deliverers of cessation programs. Methodological issues are discussed.
