And I accept that. But, I don't think walmart should be allowed to tell me how to spend my break.

You smokers piss me off.....selfish people who could care less that your habit/addiction is getting on my clothes, in my eyes and in my mouth. I am addicted to sex but you don't see me ejaculating all over you. You smokers may see it different but I don't, keep you nasty habit at home!

Non smokers piss me off by treating smokers like they are trash. I am very considerate of others when smoking and never smoke near non smokers, or smoke in the house, or in the car.. So go find something else to B$@&: about!

I also do not smoke around non smokers, or in my car or home. At work the smoking room is separate from the non smoking room. How am I hurting you again?

Thank you for considering nonsmokers! I treat everyone the same and would never be rude to a smoker who was smoking around me. But I am sure you know people that don't consider others that is whom I am talking about.

I think it is funny how the smoking lounge at Walmart is a tiny room, whereas the non-smokers lounge is about three times the size. The smoker's lounge will be cram-packed full of people, and the big lounge will hardly have anyone. I am not a smoker (of cigarettes) personally, but I have never been bothered by sitting in there with all the smokers. Anyway, I haven't heard about the banishment of smoking in my store. Seeing as probably more than half of all the employees smoke, I don't see that idea going over too well.

do u think wal mart cares about what u think about smokin or not they are just tryin to get rid of the old timers there so they can hire part time and not pay benefits. if we were all smart back in the day we wouldve wewnt unioun and they couldnt pull that crap sam is turning ove rin his grave right now so all they worry about now is the upper mgmt gettin those big bonus checks and pay others min wage ive got lots of friends on the southside that got let go cuz of stupid stuff and i was thinkin about goin back but not one employee has said i would like it the way they changed and treat us bad

"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body," (1 Cor. 6:19-20).

It was announced MANY years ago that smoking was bad for your health......when I was a kid. As the decades have rolled along I still see young people smoking........people who were born 25 years or so after that announcement was made. What makes a young person want to start smoking? If it's peer pressure, then your peers have got THEIR priorities wrong. Smoking will get you hooked, and it will be very hard to stop. If you think it makes you look grown up, well, it doesn't. It is a very bad habit to start which will very quickly turn into an addiction.
Well....

Thanks for the lecture. Now excuse me while I light my cig, destroy my health and Gods temple while infecting others with my second hand smoke.

It's their property so they can do what they want with it I guess. Just be happy they aren't refusing to hire smokers. A lot of hospitals are beginning to refuse to even hire people that smoke/chew tobacco products.

I don't think smokers should be allowed to vote or own property.

I bet they still sell cigs. They probably don't allow smoking on the store property because of insurance. They worry that in the future smokers will sue because they smoked on site. Walmart is a corporation all it cares about is profit. It doesn't care if you smoke, it will sell you the cigs, it just doesn't want to be held responsible because it will cost them money

WHY IS IT ALL ABOUT SOMEONES RIGHTS? IF IT WAS PEOPLE WOULD MIND THEIR ON BUSINESS INSTEAD OF GETTING INTO MINE, MAYBE WE SHOULD BAN WATER OR COLAS . WHY SHOULD I BE PUNISHED FOR SOMETHING THAT I DO THAT IS PROVEN TO BE A HABIT. WE HAVE BEEN PUT OUTSIDE FOR OUR BREAKS NO COVERED AREA ONLY 4 CHAIRS AND A TABLE UNDER TREES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PARKING LOT,HOW WOULD NONSMOKERS LIKE TO HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE IN ALL KINDS OF WEATHER TO TAKE A BREAK THAT STARTS WHEN YOU LEAVE YOUR WORK AREA? DOES NO ONE CARE FOR OUR TIME. NO YOU SIT IN YOUR AREA AND LAUGH AT US THANK YOU
