Abstract : Introduction: smoking, first avoidable mortality cause in the world, has a prevalence in jail much more important than in general population. Public health actions, such as #MoisSansTabac, are set up to promote smocking reduction. This study’s primary objective is to describe the impact of this action in Bordeaux-Gradignan penitentiary center. Materials and Methods: 15 inmates who participates in #MoisSansTabac in November 2017 were individually questionned, few months after the action. These interviews allowed to collect both quantitative datas about the level of smoking and qualitative datas regarding their representations about smoking. Results: among the questionned participants, 6 of them (40%) had reduced their level of smoking at the end of #MoisSansTabac. None of them declared complete smoking cessation. The day of the interview, 8 of them (53,3%) had reduced their consumption and 2 of them declared complete smoking cessation. This action’s experience was positive for 10 participants (66,7%) around themes such as physic health, mental health and budget. Participants’ representations about smoking were centred on anxiolytic use (n=11, 77,3%). The main axis of improvement mentioned by the participants was the increase of follow-up, during the action and throughout the year. Conclusion: #MoisSansTabac was beneficial for inmates who participated in it, both on consumption reduction and individual feel of the action. This new public health action must be maintained in jail and improved thanks to participants’ feedback.
