Coffee break

I have read and heard a couple of times that office 'coffee break' is now slowly but surely replacing the 'cigarette/smoking break' done regularly by some office workers. Is this true in your workplace? Do you think this is a good substitute to the later (i.e. smoking)?

Yeah!We have a canteen in our office. The idea is to discourage employee going out for hours together just to have coffee. This is for fun: In an office canteen there is a poster displayed on the wall, which says 'I was never late for my coffee break in my life'

I have never heard of a smoking break. I used to smoke before but I think it is a disgusting habit and people should just stop smoking like I did. They can drink coffee anytime even when there is no office break, as far as I'm concerned. It would improve productivity, I think.
