Abstract In 1992, the 12 occupational physicians of the inter-enterprise medical service of St. Maur (Val-de-Marne département of France) defined a cohort for a long-term study of smoking habits in the working population. In July 1992 and July 1994, they determined the distribution of smokers and nonsmokers in five groups of workplaces defined by the extent to which smoking was prohibited or the opportunities to smoke were limited. Between the two dates, the number of smokers fell among those at whose workplaces smoking was prohibited by the enterprise, but rose among those at whose workplaces it was prohibited by law. No significant change was seen in the three other groups (smoking limited by peer pressure or the demands of the job; jobs whose compatibility with smoking varied from day to day; no limitation on smoking).
