    Default If your work place assisted with quitting smoking

    Would you do it? Would you encourage your partner if their work place provided support?

    The more support the better. If your employer was offering assistance, I don't know why you wouldn't take it.

    I am contemplating it coz our work place as they are encouraging employees to quit. On wednesday they are holding an info session with someone from the quit line coming out to talk to everyone. We would also be provided with phone calls from the quit line plus 16wks of either patches, gum or lozenges.

    My huge worry is failing and then work being we spent all this money for nothing as its all about money money money to them.

    I also may not be even able to attend due to my current work load and not sure if i can find someone to replace me while i am off the floor.

    I'd still give it a shot. You've got nothing to lose.

    At least they are doing something positive. All you can do is try. (If you're keen that is).

    I work in the same industry as you and my employers have recently been such a holes about it (about 3/4 of us smoke)... Removing our seats and tables and blocking off the undercover part with the bus so we have to stand in the rain basically. It just made me mad, not wanting to quit.

    Eta: and your colleagues am can all support each other.

    Personally i see it as a great opportunity. There are two ways employers can approach this, and it sounds great. Mind are just trying to bully us into quitting. And they have threatened to dock our pay 15 minutes if they catch you smoking with a minute left before knock off or if you are a minute late back from break for smoking. Angry!!!

    If you fail they can't do anything... I think they'd just be glad you tried tbh instead if igniting their attempt at change

    Ours recently changed all the meal breaks. Anyone caught downstairs after 1:30pm are obviously having sneaky breaks.

    If they catch you, i would just leave 15mins early coz i dont see that as fair being docked for having a break you are entitled to.

    I signed up today to start the journey to quit smoking. Just waiting on someone from quitline to call and then they will send me out patches as i believe they would work best for me.
