No Smoking. These signs are everywhere. I dont know of an office building that allows smoking inside. Perhaps the offices of Altria allow smoking and even then Im not sure. Also, the outdoor areas where smoking is allowed are shrinking. No more stepping just outside the door to grab a quick smoke, these areas increasingly have the no smoking signs posted. Airports have only small designated areas and restaurants that used to have a smoking section are becoming completely smoke free environments. Im wondering how many missed flights have happened due to the need for a quick smoke that turned into the hunt for a smoking area in an airport maze, because everyone knows there will be no smoking during the flight. More and more restaurants which used to at least have an smoking section are no completely smoke free. There is a solution for those who still enjoy the action, taste and nicotine of a cigarette. Metro E-Cigs look and taste like a tobacco cigarette, but because of the lack of tobacco in the e-cig, they are not subject to the no smoking bans. Not everyone who currently enjoys smoking can work for Altria, but they can switch today to electronic cigarettes, which are allowed most anywhere.
When I finished my BA in event planning I start at a high end wedding planning firm. We were doing weddings that were millions upon millions of dollars. And these clients were very demanding. Bridzilla was an understatement when it came to these brides. But that is what we got paid for. So with all the stress that was on me I noticed that I was smoking a lot more than I use to. And it felt like the days that we had weddings my nerves where very very high. So Since I only had like one or two minutes to myself so I was wasting a lot of cigarettes by only half. So a colleague of mine told me that I should try an electronic cigarette. It was a nice device that I could use real quick in between my duties. It ran on a battery and I could just pop it in my pocket and not have to carry a purse, which is one less thing I need to worry about. Plus I was not getting as much nicotine in regular cigarettes. My e-cig was the best thing that could have happened to me with my dream job. And it seems like my brides are happier these days too.
