Should you start smoking?

Recommended Posts

Most people believe that smoking employees get more breaks than regular employees. In an eight hour shift, I smoke three times. I smoke before I get to work. I smoke on my fifteen minute break two hours in, I smoke on my lunch four  hours in, and I smoke on my second break 6 hours in. Then I smoke on my way home. I do not get any more breaks then a regular worker. I could also smoke less in a day, but I choose to use my breaks this way. Some days I have to use the bathroom on my break and miss my smoke, but I don't extend my break. I believe it is an unfair assumption that we get more smoking breaks. Please speak out if you see someone abusing "smoke breaks" and let me know what you think.

Aaarrrgh!  Absolutely never, ever NOT should someone start smoking to get more breaks. This was actually socially engineered by war time. A soldier was given cigarettes as a ration thus implementing the practice of a smoke break. Besides if you knew that the tobacco industry makes cigarettes to be more addictive than heroin by STIMULATING the relaxation response, you wouldn't do it! Obviously a hot topic for me.  What about a water break instead?
