Smoking in the workplace today (2007).
So does smoking help people to control their stress and anxiety level, well the scientific answer is NO! Smokers are actually more stressed than non-smoker, so given the government BAN on smoking in public places.
Smokers as they give up the fags, are going to be in the short term a lot more stressed then usually but in the long run their stress levels will be lower.
To stop or not to stop
It is a habit to have a smoke,
While your having a laugh and joke,
But now the ban has been in force,
Giving up should be your cause,
All people should help them try,
As in pain you will cry,
Stress levels will go higher,
As you try to put out fire,
Having spare money in your pocket,
Interest rates will surely rocket,
The NHS should surely gain,
As rising budgets are a pain,
The loss of tax must be replaced,
By another with a filthy taste,
But sticking with it you must do,
Reduce smoking to a few,
Your children will surely say,
Never have they smoked a day,
Surely that is too good,
Coughing blood they never would
So now, you do decide,
To join with others on the slide,
The SMUGS website is here for you,
Never smoke you will too
A five step plan to giving up smoking.
Step 1) Have in place help and support.
Step 2) Have a replacement tobacco product, (Gum or Patches).
