Every year, thousands of women attempt to kick their smoking habit because it is an unhealthy, expensive addiction.

In Smoke Signals, Tinkler charts women's changing relationship to tobacco from the 1880s to the 1980s, during which time smoking transformed from a male practice to one enjoyed by both sexes.
