This morning, an hour after work started, all of my office mates went out for a cigar break. We are only 6 in the office and 1 is in after noon shift so there are only 5 of us starting at 9. All of them including the head of our department are smoking. Well, I really don't know why but I'm just curious, why do they have to smoke?

It is a terrible habit! I do not smoke, I can not even handle second hand smoke or the smell of it in a room or on the clothes of someone that does.My grandfather smoked and also was a cement mason.So beyween the smoke and the daily cement dust it caused him to have lung cancer. But there are people that do smoke like my sister and both my sons And for the people that do they need to have places that they can smoke.In the state that I live in they have outlawed smoking in restaurants.Where it used to be that there were smoking and non smoking areas in the restaurants.Now they want to make bars non smoking as well! Which I think is crazy.I do not smoke,but for those that do they need a place to do so.

Here in Dubai, though buildings are supposed to be smoke free, they actually designated a certain place or area where they can do their smoking. Whenever the want to they really have to go there for smoking is strictly prohibited anywhere else.

Here also except for bars and in your home or car.But there are some people trying to make that illegal also.There are some people just simply trying to make it that it is just for if you have children in the car no one in the car can be smoking.

Yeah. Same here. I can even see people smoking while driving. They don't really care if they will be fine for doing such.

Wow, friend. Good thing that you have joined a Bible Study. I'm so proud of you and not smoking for 3 weeks is a great achievement. Keep on attending a Bible Study and it will help you a lot not only emotionally but also spiritually. God bless!

sometimes i wish i did smoke because i noticed that smokers seem to be allowed to take multiple breaks during the work shift, especially if they're with the boss, so the workflow stops. or they can't work properly on their own task because there are phones ringing or visitors dropping by. it also gets awkward like with my former boss. when he is looking for someone and if i say they're not at their stations, he'd want me to find them, so when they see me, they're kind of annoyed at me. but you know what, imagining myself as a smoker, i don't think i'll necessarily join everyone. i might want to smoke in a different place while doing my own thing.

You are absolutely right about them having multiple breaks during the working hours. I think they are using it as a way of relaxing themselves from the troubles of a long day. However, there are a lot things that they can do to be relieve instead of smoking.

I also cannot understand why people smoke. no matter how aware they are that smoking is dangerous to their health still they can't stop it. Good for those who were able to stop from smoking before something bad happens with their health. But some people after having health issues still keep smoking xxx

People do smoke because they think it looks cool. Some of them start smoking because their family members or friends do the same. Smoking is a hard habit to break! Once you have already started it, then you'll find it hard to stop.
