I can and some times do. But with my aging canine friend I choose not to. Not worried about the wife. In fact I demand she go outside to smoke her cigarettes. That's what happens when you wear the big boy pants in the house.
I can smoke anywhere in the house, but limit it to the TV room, and if it's nice outside, I go there, preferring to not smoke in the house at all if possible. I smoke a lot in the car, and always on the golf course.
At home mainly in my office/man cave or in front of the fireplace in the family room. I'll smoke outside when the weather is nice and no wind present. Wife also smokes American Spirit cigarettes in those same limited rooms, about 6 stick a day so it's not unbearable to us. Rest of house is primarily smoke free.
I can smoke inside whenever I like, but the wife prefers (and I feel it is polite to acquiesce) that I not smoke Lat bombs or particularly pungent cigars inside. The trouble is, I don't enjoy smoking indoors unless there is good, swiftly-moving ventilation, so I generally smoke outside anyway. Even with a ceiling fan going and a window partially open, I still can't replicate the air handling of a decent cigar lounge.
I'm fortunate to have a man cave. Converted the 3rd garage bay to a smoking room 10 years ago. Framed a wall, installed drywall and insulation. Installed a 55" flat screen, hooked up a heater to the gas supplied to the house, installed an air conditioner and a couple of recliners. About 6 months ago, I moved my office to the man cave as well. Have 3 monitors mounted to the wall which helps a lot with efficiency (the work I do requires that I have access to a lot of windows). Now I can work in the man cave and smoke the entire time. I feel blessed as living in Indiana, I would not be smoking outside most of the winter.
I do now and I flipping love it!!! All it took was getting a divorce and voila! I can smoke in my own house now!
I don’t smoke up to to 24 hours before it’s my turn to have my daughter over on the weekend and I don’t smoke while she’s here.
