    This. Except if someone was farting next to me I would probably fart back at them.

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.
    If I knew anyone who smoked this would totally be my policy.

    My idiot BIL leaves his son who has severe asthma at his MIL house to go away with his wife all the time, her mum and family members smoke inside around him it's a small closed in unit, he gets severely sick and even went hospital a few times after being there once my MIL marched herself over there and took him and told them he's staying with her for the rest of the week till his parents get back, she told me he lay limp on the couch for several days having coughing attacks how dumb are ppl. Inside? Around a boy with asthma

    I'm fine with people smoking on the deck, but most choose to go outside.

    Maybe the odd smokers I've had in my home are not heavy ones and I really can't smell anything too offensive on them. I know what you mean though, I've smelled plenty of people when I'm out and about that absolutely reek of ashtray. They smell like they've sat in a closed room and smoked a whole packet and not changed their clothes or anything. I have encountered that and it's awful. Luckily I don't actually know anyone that bad.

    Having said that, I find people who wear too much perfume or aftershave sickening. I feel nausea and gets headaches from that if it is too heavy and let me tell you, there are plenty of people who think the more, the better.

    That's just selfish stupidity. People are such idiotic creatures. I would never allow smoking around my child, let alone if he had asthma.

    That's called neglect.
