hmmmm. interesting Q. is there an office space that you can retreat to for sipping? I'm really surprised, though, that in a healthcare environment, your boss and other office folks aren't viewing this as an issue that needs a solution, rather than a flat out 'no you can't drink here' decision.
If they refuse to work with you to come up with a work-around, you might have to consider invoking the Americans with Disabilities Act. But before that, I'd consider contacting JCOAH directly. They're actually quite helpful [long story - but i'll bet they will answer your question].
I know that MRI techs have to stay with the patients and the machines [having just recently survived 2 and a half hours with one of them! it got on my last nerve!!!], but there's gotta be a way to compromise on this.
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
