Condell, SL (2001) Young women's smoking and body image: a discussion paper for Irish nurses. All Ireland Journal of Nursing and Midwifery , 1 , (5) , pp. 167-170.

This paper reviews the research to date on women's smoking in Ireland. It continues by exploring the context of the behaviour with specific reference to the influence of popular culture and the linking of smoking with body image. The manipulation of that link by tobacco companies and the implications for health promotion are discussed. The relevance to Irish nursing is a deeper understanding of women's tobacco use, thus raising awareness of the issues involved for nurses as consumers of the product and as health promoters.
