Charlie, that is the hardest part. One of the main reasons I took up smoking was everyone I work with smoked. The mentality around smoke breaks is pretty messed up, but fairly ingrained. This is how the conversation normally goes:

Employee – Time for a smoke break”
Boss – “good idea, I need a cigarette too”
This is acceptable once an hour. On the other token:

Employee- “I am going to get some fresh air for about 10 minutes”
Boss – “Uhh, didn’t you just get back from lunch? How many breaks do you need?”

I had a pretty good idea this morning for shop time. I’ve always wanted to learn hand cut dovetails. I think I will use that for my “reward time”. Rather than grab a smoke, I’ll cut a dovetail. Also that rob crossman dovetail saw costs about as much as 2 weeks of cigarettes
