SA : Lock them up & take away their cigarettes!

The sale of cigarettes is banned in South Africa during lockdown confinement, yet nicotine withdrawal causes bad temper, frustration, agitation, anxiety and mood swings. There is considerable short-term risk to the mental wellbeing of those who use tobacco as a coping mechanism. This restriction on civil liberties causes misery for no public health benefit and may increase the risk of domestic violence as people suffer withdrawal in confined and stressful circumstances.
