I was reading an article somewhere earlier today, where a company was going to start giving non-smoking employees a bonus week of vacation. Let's say the average smoker takes three 10 minute breaks a day totaling 30 minutes. Times that by a 5 day work week, and that's 2.5 hours a week. Times 4 weeks in the month, that's 10 hours a month. Multiply that by 12 and that's 120 hours worth of smoke breaks a year (approximately). Divide that by 8 (to get how many days in average working hours) and you get about 15 days. So on average, smokers potentially take about 15 days worth of smoke breaks a year (on the clock).

That being said, do you think it would be fair to give non-smokers a bonus week of vacation time?

I don't smoke in my working hours only on my break and as far I'm aware the same applies at most workplaces
