All across the country, Americans are making the choice to go smokeless and the laws regarding smoking in those states are following suit. In addition to passing laws regarding smoking in public in almost every state, the government is constantly raising the taxes that tobacco products carry, making smoking a very expensive habit.

If you are a smoker and heading to your vacation, you may want to think about whether or not you even want to carry that extra pack with you.

If you are travelling with your family, this can obviously be a big problem, so you may choose, or have no choice but to go with, a non-smoking room. If this is the case, finding a smoking area can be a pain, almost enough so to make you wonder why you are smoking at all.
In addition to hotel accommodations being a tricky for smokers, many travel destinations such as theme parks have completely banned smoking on the premises. The locations that do still have smoking areas hide them from public view and make it tough for smokers to even find them.

You can get your nicotine fix while waiting in line or even on a ride, if you so choose. The fact is that cigarette smoking is not the most fashionable habit these days and it get less popular all the time.
