Now that's a comprehensive answer. Wish I could give you more than +1

comment Are there rules in D&D 3.5 for characters who smoke?
You're looking for rules for addiction and addictive substances, but dismiss the only rule set that deals with this (in the Book of Vile Darkness). So I don't really get what you're looking for. Besides the addictions, the rest of the questions are negligible (there would be no "mechanical effects" except maybe after smoking for several decades or if you had magical tobacco or something).

comment Armour rating inside an iron safe
I don't even understand this question, nor why it's been so highly upvoted. Are you claiming, as the DM, that you should be able to attack the player through an iron safe... ?

comment Does Positive Energy heal living creatures even when it does not specify that it does so?
+1, the Positive Energy Plane was exactly what came to mind when I read the question.

comment Level of detail in description?
The biggest factor is your target audience and what they enjoy, and is thus very subjective. For example, despite The Lord of the Rings being undeniable classics, it's difficult for me to sit through three pages describing Gandalf and Bilbo's smoke rings, and I much prefer a Kurt Vonnegut, short-and-dirty kind of style. And there's an audience that completely disagrees with me and prefers the verbosity. Just give the amount of detail that keeps you and your players having a good time with the game.

comment How do I design exciting, fun boss fights for my players?
@Kiorrik That's actually a really, really good point. If you look at some of the more complicated bosses that aren't just "tank and spank", you can get some really great ideas on how to shake things up or make encounters unique.

comment What actions should I avoid when joining a new group?
@CameronMacFarland I'm assuming it's actual situational anxiety, not clinical anxiety. You're very correct that if it's clinical anxiety no amount of standard advice will help. There's a huge distinction between those two, however.
