Philip Morris is declaring a smoke free zone in its Melbourne factory. In place of the monthly free 2 cartons of cancer sticks, they are offering a one off payment of AU$8000 to employees. About 25% of Australians now smoke with smoking banned on all public transport, smoke free zones in restaurants, a lot of work places smoke free with the threat of govt legislation to ban smoking in the workplace all together. The majority of new smokers are teenage girls. I gave it up 16 years ago and it was a very tough thing to do. I certainly do not regret it but missed it enormously for years, especially when having a drink or three.
