Newark Airport: Smoking

Is there anywhere in the Newark Airport that still allows smoking? I'm particularly interested in Terminal C (Continental). Thanks.

Reminds me of the guy who ran into a little restaurant at O'Hare (spelling?) where I was eating and he asked if he could smoke there. The bartender said there's no smoking anywhere in the airport and he took off running again. He looked really silly letting a cigarette Run his life.

Smokers act like banchee monkeys when they need a fix.

Maybe they still have restaurant/bars at Newark that still allow smokers to puff their brains out at the expense of everyone else but I hope not.

jor, smokers are in need of a fix. A nicotine fix. Don't be so quick to judge.

GoTravel, Nicotine addicts ruin the health of people around them. Heroin and Crack addicts steal others' property to support their habit. I don't know which is really worse. But I do know that my aunt died from lung cancer because of her husband's life long smoking in the house. Yes, I guess I am quick to judge on this subject.

And I don't mean anything personal against you GoTravel. Its just a subject that gets my dander up.

jor, I know it is nothing against me. I quit two years ago and STILL have horrible nicotine cravings that bring me to my knees.

I don't want to smoke cigarettes, I just want the nicotine! I swear I could eat a cigarette. Isn't that nasty?

GoTravel - since nicotine patches became available over-the-counter a surprising number of people buy the lowest dosage patches and wear them forever (not just the tapering off to nothing as suggested). Many of them don't tell their family, friends, and certainly not their MDs. (How do I know - I am a community health RN and i am in a position to find out all sorts of unusual things.)

Certainly beats picking up butts and eating them and healthier than smoking. And congrats on being able to kick the cigarettes - one of the toughest addictions to beat.

The website confirms that yes, you can still smoke in "liquor bars", but instead of breathing in everybody elses smoke in addition to your own, why not just go outside?

Thanks gail. I did use the patch to help quit smoking (I looked at it as a drug addiction not a smoking addiction) and used the occaisional valium.

I'd rather just plow through the nicotine cravings than give into them.

I'm answering my own question. I just flew through Newark, and there is NO SMOKING anywhere inside the terminal.

I've only ever flown FROM Newark internationally (never THROUGH it on a connecting domestic flight), and was quite impressed by the shops and restaurants. Their TSA people are doing a great job, too. Even on the Sunday after Christmas, there were no lines at security, which I found out when I went OUTSIDE to smoke!
