    I've always liked the smell of cigar smoke far more than cigarette smoke. I think both are equally bad in terms of second hand smoke health effects, so I try to stay away from both. It's good to know it's outright banned in the UK.

    I remember when I used to go to casinos when they allowed smoking. I then stopped going as soon as online poker was introduced because the second-hand smoking was very unhealthy.

    Oh yeah, cigars smell so much better than cigarettes. I'd like to think it's because cigars are made with 'proper' tobacco and less processed than cigs, but you're right, they're as bad as each other for second hand smoke.

    I love the ban. I used to smoke back in the day but hated coming home from a night out with all my clothes smelling.

    Tobacco is awful in a casino and everywhere. Even if I don't notice it, when I leave the place all my clothes smell, so I avoid being in smoking environments whenever I can.

    It's amazing how easily clothes absorb cigarette odor. I remember standing outside a movie theater next to a couple of smokers for only a few minutes. When I got home, my jacket reeked of cigarette smoke.

    I also noticed that, even if you stayed next to a person who smoked for like 10 minutes, you would still get that smell all over your clothes. My best advice in order to avoid that, would be (if you're not a smoker of course), to try and wear the same clothes while you go to places where you know you'll meet a lot of smoke, and to have some smokefree clothes, for the casual occasions.

    In almost all places, except many casinos in the US it is illegal to smoke in public. Many casinos are on Indian reservations which operate under different laws, so many of them allow smoking indoors.

    It used to be cool, but it used to look cool only. When you dive into that smoking barrel, you forget how to breath what the outside world smells like. Now people prefer www.deliciousnimbus.com to cigarettes, but it was banned as well. And this thing didn't even look cool, so i can live with that.
