One of the many reasons people continue to smoke or add to their daily intake is because they're bored. Sitting outside the classroom building or parking yourself on the bench outside work can be hazardous to your health.
Solve the problem by not lingering. Have a short conversation with your co-worker but don't stay to talk about all of the latest office gossip. Say what you have on your mind and keep going. If you cannot avoid these conversations when you get them started, don't put yourself in that position. Stay a few extra minutes at lunch so you don't have time to sit and talk. Don't get to work early or stay late to cavort with others. Not only can you cut down on your cigarettes, you will get more done elsewhere.
