“A Japanese company is granting its non-smoking staff an additional six days of holiday a year to make up for the time off smokers take for cigarette breaks.

Marketing firm Piala Inc introduced the new paid leave allowance in September after non-smokers complained they were working more than their colleagues who smoked.

Hirotaka Matsushima, a spokesman for the company, told The Telegraph: “One of our non-smoking staff put a message in the company suggestion box earlier in the year saying that smoking breaks were causing problems.”

Following the suggestion, the company’s CEO Takao Asuka decided to give non-smoking employees extra time off to compensate, Mr Matsushima added.

The matter has been taken seriously by the Tokyo-based company which is reportedly based on the 29th floor of an office block — making any cigarette break last at least 15 minutes, according to staff.

Mr Asuka hopes the scheme will create an incentive for the company’s staff to quit smoking.”

    Jeanne Calment….. Lived to be 122 years old…. and you know what Anna? She was a smoker. Supposedly She only smoked two cigarettes a day. More people die a year from car accidents (in the us) than ciggarettes. Also, drinking and terrible food I'm sure are a huge health cost to the American public as well . People that don't eat fast food I guess should get better breaks. And yes, cigarettes are terrible. But, trust me, if you were a smoker, you would not take those extra days off over smoking. It's very addictive, and a terrible habit that usually people that suffer from depression or bipolar disorder do (but of course a lot of 'normal' people do it as well). Bottom line is, smokers and non-smokers should be treated the same. Just like other drugs, it's not going away any time soon. So enjoy the second hand smoke Anna(JK), I'm going to go have a cigarette.
