I'm sure you can probably come up with some of your own.
As you said, more and more smokers are joining this site. There is only so much we can say to to each other since we are all pretty much in agreement. Give those that don't want to say something a reason to log on .

For the most part, you need to call ahead. For one thing, they might have outside seating where smoking is welcome.
<b>Hotels: That ban smoking </b>

<b>Airports: Do they have smoking areas.</b>
Site that lists places with bans (no-smoke): http://www.no-smoke.org/pdf/100smokefreeairports.pdf
In addition, you need to be aware of smoke-free apartment listings. Here is a scary site on what’s developing: http://s-fhc.com/
PS I see more and more smokers getting off their duff--there are some who are stating just that even in the editorials of my own pro-ban newspaper! "An Epidemic of Awakening" is at-hand. There will be quite a backlash as growing numbers of smokers discover that they've been marginalized over fraudulent science.
