I haven't experienced healthcare recently but I have been detained in psychiatric hospitals in the past.
It's not possible for me to access health care now because of the smoking bans, if I am locked up I will be forced to abruptly withdraw from the habit that keeps me stable.
This apparently is to protect non-smokers from imaginary hazards of second hand smoke (which is not proved more dangerous than mobile phones in spite of the hype). Of course, it's too much trouble to detain people in segregated or ventilated accommodation that doesn't force unwanted, non-consensual treatment.
So thanks for nothing government, Department of Health, NHS and pharmaceutical company fronts/cessation industry, it's a pleasure not being near intolerant control freaks.
