Smoking or non? Smokers, those who abstain disagree on workday impact

E-cigarette maker Halo surveyed over 1,000 employed Americans about how fair they feel smoke breaks really are.

The lost time can affect finances, too.

A company in Japan recently gave nonsmoking workers an extra six vacation days, USA Today reported. More than 80 percent of smokers said cigarette breaks were fair, while 25 percent of nonsmokers said they were not.

In all, 18.3 percent more nonsmokers suggested that those who do not take smoke breaks deserved at least one extra day of vacation. Meanwhile, 74.8 percent of nonsmokers disagreed. Those surveyed said they would do so if they got 11 extra vacation days in return.

As for the smokers, more than 16 percent said nonsmokers should receive seven or more days of vacation time, and 28 percent of them thought nonsmokers should get three to five extra days.

The Centers for Disease Control estimates 37.8 million adults in the United States now smoke cigarettes.

The overview found that in excess of 81 percent of smokers said their nicotine breaks were reasonable while just around 25 percent of non-smokers concurred. However, Human Resources experts say it does create a staff morale issue.
