Stubbing Out Our Rights petition

If you haven't signed this yet, please do so. Join the Facebook group while you're at it and spread the word. Post the petition on your own journals, write the URL on people's feet, whatever you fancy.

If you don't remember what this is about, this is about letting people have smoking rooms in secure psych units where the patients are not allowed to go outside for a ciggie, as opposed to forcing people who are ill enough to require inpatient psychiatric treatment to quit smoking cold turkey with no preperation and very little, if any, support.

If you don't think people should be allowed to smoke in psych wards, fine. You don't have to sign the petition. I would however prefer it if you didn't comment here or on the Facebook group complaining about it. I can't be arsed with drama and arguing with people. Cheers.

NB: UK signatures only please

Signed. None of the inpatients detained under the Mental Health Act where I work smoke, but if such a person comes to live here, it's going to cause a huge problem. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. XD
