I'm relegated to my shop or outside. My daughter just had her first baby on the 5th and I was told I have to even change cloths before I come near my first grandson because second hand smoke, even on cloths, might affect him. She told me she's going to get me an electric cigarette that smells like a pipe so I can quit. :cfsd:
Yup. People are Sooo helpful.:shead:This does bring up an interesting point though. How did children survive 20+ years ago when they were around second hand smoke on the reg?:cfsd:
Aww, common, weren't you guys really protective of your kids when they were newborns? Its not that the baby would be hurt, but smoke smell on someone is not exactly pleasant. Can you blame a mom for not wanting her defenseless newborn to smell smoke on someone? I had to change a shirt now and then too, and it was OK with me. ;)

I want to thank all of you for the fine responses, I realize how good I have it here, smoke in the house whenever I choose to do so. Find a blend with a favorable room note. Make note of the blend, train for a week eating Chili, Tex-Mex food, Bean soup, sauerkraut and pickled eggs and beer. Prepare yourself for when she brings the pipe and tobacco to you and asks you to light up.

Hahahahahaha this litterally just happened to me tonight. My wife begged me to smoke so I can "air the house out"
 
There is no quirkier, unpredictable or potentially lethal critter on this planet than a nesting female. All of the fathers and husbands of expectant wives know exactly what I'm talking about. Like soldiers in the trenches we are, always one ear cocked for that next round of incoming artillery. You can never know when it is coming either. Seemingly "safe" and quiet times can prove to be the deadliest when suddenly an errant shell comes screaming in like a bolt from the blue. Never would we be so stupid as to poke our heads above the parapet to gaze absent mindedly lest a sniper instantly draw a bead nor would we fire up a bowl in the kitchen or living room as all hell would be upon us in a flash.

Keep your helmets on.

Best regards, Daniel.

Dude, I hear ya...I feel like I've been in the bear's dean for two years now! Our first son was born last April and our second son is due this April.

I did get a couple months of downtime, but it was filled with a brand new infant... I can't even remember what it was like to not live in a house with a nesting female...

And this is what she does for fun

 
My ex was an anti. If I wed again, there is a sun porch, not connected to the heating system, but also high ceilinged and windows on 3 sides. I think that will be my library and smoking room.

I am rather old school on this. When I started smoking, people smoked anywhere and everywhere. Even non smokers had ashtrays in their house for convenience of their smoking guests. When my wife was alive she also smoked so smoking in the house is normal for me. But when I visit my sisters, I smoke either on the porch or in the garage. My family has always had a simple rule; homeowner calls the shots. If they come to my house, they know I am going to smoke.
Doug, that seems way to sensible to ever catch on, but pretty much the way we work it too.
 
My wife allows me to smoke ANY place I like.. as long as it is OUTSIDE.... :haha: I am the king of my castle as long as she gives me permission. Also from time to time she askes me when was the last time I cleaned here S&W Chiefs special.. which has my own reloads in it.. and I know what those can do.
Cheers

I was married to my one and only wife for over 45 years. When a local tobacco shop was going out of business she bought me several high end pipes for Christmas. (I didn't know just how high end until I joined this forum because a pipe was just a pipe to me). I never smoked cigars in the house because even I didn't like the smell when I came back into the room. She always liked the smell of the pipe tobaccos I smoked especially MBGE. She had a rough several years starting with the death of her best friend, a long hospital stay for me and then the loss of both her parents within six months of each other. She left a year ago last September and divorced me last June and then married the widower of her best friend last week. I took up pipe smoking again and don't plan to have another woman in my life. I ended up with the house and smoke where ever I want. I'm not sure I would give up pipe smoking again if she wanted to come back. At nearly 70 I'm fairly content.

If you would like to have your wife put up with your smoking indoors I strongly recommend Mac Baren's Golden Extra. Most woman like it's aroma.

When it's cold, I get my pick-up keys and head for the door, she knows exactly what I am going to do. It kinda increases the cost of my enjoyment, but I don't care.

As with any fight, ask yourself "Is this the hill I want to die on?"
Permanent Roommate is using the landlord's no smoking policy to her advantage.
When we do have our own place, there will be a den with an air purifier, ozone machine, a cooler-dor and pelts on the wall.
Until then, I will smoke on my snowbank. and when a pipe sounds more appealing than intimate relations that night.
