Used to smoke ~ half a pack a day until i started working in Investment Banking. Has anyone of you also found it incredibly easy to quit once you started working long hours and get involved at work? IMO it's actually one of the few upsides of working long hours and being very busy, as it completely takes your mind off such bad habits. I can only imagine how it accelerates your health deteriorating combined with the little sleep you get anyways.
What are your experiences with smoking co-workers / are there even any? Is it possible for them to be top performers at your firm despite going out for a few during the day?
