Water is a terrifying drug. Check this:
Hope you enjoy it. You'd better, took me 10 minutes to google for it! Seems
to have been updated since I first read it though. The choice bits are the
quotes at the end.
I've seen some good ones out there. The heating isn't an issue, as they
filter the air, not vent it to outside. Smoke particles can be removed
relatively easily, they are much larger that normal molecules in air.
One company I worked in had an internal smoking room (no window) that had
something like this. I still went outside though, smoke rooms in offices are
dank and usually full of people depressed that their break is about to end!
Finally!! A new use for babies gas masks from WW2!!
As far as I can see, his only problem is a chip on his sholder. Not hugged
as child perhaps? ;-)
I think you need a rethink of your philosophy of life somewhere if you
really believe that! In particular one's mental health ('happiness')
is very tightly coupled to one's 'physical' health so you can't really
have one without the other.
And this is coming from someone who has said they never smoked? Who's

Nicotine is a drug, moron. From some random webpage:
Brautbur reports that nicotine activates certain neurons in part of the
brain called the mesolimbic system. This system is the same pathway that
creates the intense cravings to indulge in certain foods or activities, such
as sex. When the mesolimbic pathway is stimulated, the neurons secrete
dopamine. In turn, dopamine provides the brain with a chemical reward that
literally arouses it. Tests have shown that both cocaine and nicotine
produce this effect in the brain. In general, nicotine continually
stimulates the release of dopamine(1)
We enjoy it. Are you so slow on the uptake that you cannot grasp this simple
