Interesting Fact - Money

According to research published by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), smoking breaks and additional sick leave are costing UK businesses £8.7 billion in lost productivity every year.

(Their research showed that the average smoker takes four smoking breaks a day, lasting for around ten minutes. Smokers also take nearly a day more of sick leave a year on average compared to their non-smoking colleagues.

The BHF is calling on employers to join thousands of organisations in running No Smoking Day events today, March 12.)
