My boyfriend smokes and previously only ever smoked inside. Interestingly enough, although his mother smoked, she frequently complained about being able to smell HIS cigarette smoke, so usually when he smoked it was with windows wide open. He's not a fan of the smoke either, so this helped. Over the summer when he came to visit me he wasn't allowed to smoke inside, however, and ended up switching to smoking solely outside. He discovered that he prefers this a lot: not only is it nice going outside more often, but he smokes less because cigarettes are not quite as easily accessible if you have to go outside to smoke them. It's worked out really well for us, being in an LDR too, because his smoking time has become our phone time: since he has to be outside regardless, he typically calls me and we spend his time outside smoking talking together.
