Which communities do not allow women to smoke? Satmar?

If yes, is it an official or implicit rule ?

I think that is a social thing (that smoking is more frowned upon with women) not a religious one. And it isn't just in Jewish circles. – Yishai Jan 1 '14 at 18:32
Thanks. I know that women smokes in some communities. I guess it is more frowned upon in haredi communities, isnt it ? – jole Jan 1 '14 at 18:34
It probably is. It is frowned upon for men as well, but much less so. – Yishai Jan 1 '14 at 19:18
I think Yishai is right,its generally frowned on. someone argued that smokers have a bigger burden on shabbos. – Banjamin Jan 1 '14 at 20:13
question assumes anyone is permitted to smoke.… – eramm Jan 1 '14 at 21:26
