Tough

I quit smoking 5 years ago, and happy about it. But I’m in an industry where everyone goes on smoke breaks. The closeness and the comaraderie was always fun. I miss it.

Yeah, alcohol and blow are also like that.
Thus why I always tell people they should keep drinking. To quit is social suicide.
Can harm your work prospects, too.

Then go out with them

I quit about 15 years ago and I had the same problem. I started going out with the smokers as a way of still being cool even if I didn't smoke. I also became immune to the urge to start smoking by seeing smokers smoke all the time. The smokers looked at me with suspicion for a while, but they finally figured out that I was not going to start lecturing them. I don't go out with them anymore, but there are only 3 of them now.

Just go on smoke breaks with them. You don’t have to smoke. I had a friend that did that years ago and nobody thought it was weird.
