Ciggie Breaks Cut A Year Off Smoker's Life
A poll revealed that taking fag breaks during work could cut an year off from an average smoker's life.

Three 15-minute smoking breaks a day cost employers 195 working hours a year for each worker.

That's a remarkable 8,677 hours in the average 44-year working lifetime - or nearly a whole year smoking instead of working.

Even the smoking ban has not helped to reduce the number of employees smoking, with 69 per cent continuing to light up - but now traveling further from their desks to find a place to do so.

"The results will be annoying for employers - who are essentially paying people to puff away," The Sun quoted John Sewell, from onepoll.com, as saying.
