Its my third Try (I did Quit for 7 mnths)

Hi guys (you are rly Pushing me forward)

I can easily Quit smoking But the real Hard thing is WORK MATES and My brother and My father they all smokers especially my Work mate he is a smoking machine we are in the same room i think i smoke negatively about 4 cigarettes a day :mad::mad:

i Did Quit from 8/2009 (Using minimizing cigarettes count per day and i never bought a package since 8/09 i just take from guys all around except yesterday )

But How can i manage all around me and I'm a little shy from him to tell him How can i Do this Please advise:(:( Thanks in advance

Be Forceful

Insist on a smoke-free workplace.

Smoking in the work place is like peeing in a public swimming pool, spitting in a public drinking fountain, or passing gas in an elevator. It isn't a nice thing share.

Quit Method: Cold Turkey

Quit Date 20/27? October 2007 (forgot exact date)

If I can do it, so can you.

Take courage henagadro,

All over the world, countries are finally realising that smoking in public places is harmful to all employess and non-smokers. I imagine that there is a tobacco control community in Egypt who can support you and provide evidence for you to show your employer.

Perhaps take your break in a different room or go for a walk away from the smoke.

Best wishes

hi hemagadro

Can you not speak to your boss and explain that you are suffering ill health with your work mate smoking heavily around you ? ..... can you at least get out of that room and work in another ...... feel sorry for you as i wouldn't like to go through that but you must talk with your boss in the very least .Good Luck Hemagadro

thx Guyz im really appreciate your effort walking away while my mate is smoking

is a good idea But if this happened i will be out the room the whole day :D

My boss is a smoker too! he will say he is gonna see this and Nothing even will happen they think that i'm complaining from nothing really important :(:(

i got a solution is really silnce and good i will get a mask just when my mate smokes i will wear it and will not talk to him i think its gonna be rude but what else i can do i don't wanna get back to smoke just for seeing my mate Smokes (i think its called social smoking):o

i live in Cairo -----> Egypt

the problem i cant tell him to smoke away cause i'm new at this work place and he was already been smoking in this room about 8 years now it will be odd i think and he is the IT team section Head i think it will take a while to tell him that (Thanks for ur effort its may be help to what in my situation too:) )
