DH and I have a lot of friends who smoke, when they come over they excuse themselves and go have a smoke on the patio.
We're about to move into our new house that we're building and I'd like to have a no smoking policy, not even in the backyard. I hate the smell, when friends are here smoking I have to close all the windows so the smell doesn't get in, and I hate the thought of the second hand smoke settling into DDs play equipment out there. I'm thinking if they need to smoke they could go out to the front near the street.
Is this reasonable? Has anyone ever told their friends they couldn't smoke at all at your home? DH actually agrees with me but we both don't really know how to got about it without being rude, any suggestions?
I just wanted to add I'm not as awful a friend as I sound, I really love all our friends and love having them over, I don't want to make them feel unwelcome, I just can't stand the smell and I'd really rather not have second hand smoke anywhere in our new place.
