I quit smoking... in some way hoping that would help me get a job. I had quit for about 35 days and miraculously I did get a job after being out of work for 14 months. I work in accounting and month-end can be a bit stressful. I've had my job now for 5 weeks and I picked up my bad habit again.

My immediate supervisor said something to me yesterday that threw me for a loop. She said she liked the other "girl" that they had used as a temp but, "She smoked so it just didn't work out."

My boss went on to tell me how she has such bad allergies that she just couldn't stand the smell of smoke.

I have Never taken a smoke break, or any break while at this new job. It's a damn good thing too or they wouldn't have hired me on.

I have ...or rather *had* been smoking one cigarette on the way to work and another on the way home. Now I realize that is a major no-no.

Who would have ever thought... Anyway, I just wanted to put this out there for others to see. We all know the horror stories about being pushed out the door by bosses that simply don't want us around. This is one thing that bosses absolutely despise.

I'm no spring chicken anymore. The world is a different place than it was 20 (or 25) years ago when people actually smoked *in* the office.

If you are lucky enough to even get your foot in the door as a temp Do Not Smoke, period. Invest in the nicotine patches, they worked for me, and through my husband's insurance I got them for free.
