All Tasmanian prisons became smoke free on 31 January 2015; smoking is not allowed anywhere on prison property.  Nicotine replacement therapy is only available to new prisoners who are entering the system.

Justice New South Wales' Trash the Ash brochure (available here) has a range of tips and resources for people trying to quit smoking in prison and is available in English, Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese and Chinese.  

There is also a Factsheet for Family and Friends (available here) which includes several strategies for how to support prisoners who want to quit smoking.
