The Smoking Lounge

One of my favorite things to do at the airport is going to the smoking lounge, smoking and people watching. As of today I quit smoking (nicotine gum tastes worse than cigarettes). I've been wanting to quit for a while and today I actually did it. However, I will miss smoking at the various lounges in airports. However, the upside to quitting smoking in relation to airports is that I'll have much more time to browse around the airport. At Chicago O'Hare I would have to go outside past security to smoke. Atlanta Hartsfield, same thing. Oklahoma City Will Rogers, smoking lounge. London Heathrow has the best smoking lounge in my opinion. It's an old gate with various television screens showing departures and arrivals from around the airport, which is awesome. In conclusion, I'll be eating and drinking more at airports giving me more time to people watch in better locations. Those smoking lounges were always out of view...
