    Your work and Smoking

    What does your company do about cigrette breaks?

    My workplace used to operate a "go whenever you like" policy as long as there wasnt too many people already on a break and you had time left to take

    But now they have introduced a policy which means we arent aloud to go out for fags together, we now have to wait for someone to come back before we go.

    One of my mates is now having a meeting with one of our top directors to see about changing this, what are your views?
    i think this is petty and as long as we dont all go at once i cant see a problem.

    strange one i know but thats Trafficmaster for you!!!

    This gives me the ****ing hound.
    What about non-smokers like me that have to sit at the desk all day whilst people around them go out and have fags, and come back into the office stinking.

    Its unsociable and atleast your company still allow you to smoke.
    You dont dgo out to socialse - you go for a fag, so if no one else is there to chat with, who cares??

    What about the people that do not smoke, not really fair on them that A. you smoke all around the building, and B. you could in theroy have breaks all together.

    I personally think that all work places should stop people smoking at work, then again I also think it should be banned in pubs, resturants etc etc

    Interesting point is that Sarah is a teacher and her school like many schools are bcoming completly smoke free. This means no smoking out sids and no smoking room. in fact if you do want to smoke it is not permiyted within a 100 meters of the school.

    I think its great - Sarah has now given up after 15 years of smoking and feels brilliant for it

    I see your point of view, obviously i was a non smoker before i was a smoker (that made sense in my head!)

    The non-smokers at my work dont get anymore or less break time then the smokers, we all have 45 mins at the start of our shift to use as we wish, be that smoking,eating or just having some chilled time.

    Its just bizarre that the company i work for go on and on about working as a team etc but dont want us to talk to each other at all even on our breaks!!!
