My girls see me smoke my pipe. I've talked to them about the risk.

With their allergies I limit their exposure.

I like all of my smoking spots and happily smoke outside.

I smoke in the kitchen, right in front of a window fan that does a great job of sucking the smoke out of the room. I don't mind my son seeing me smoke. I'd rather be in the open about it, as opposed to hiding out and making it look like an abnormal activity.

I don't smoke in my home and don't really have any desire to. Shelter is key here in the PacNW. I have an awesome covered back deck that it like an outdoor room. I especially like having a pipe when I'm hiking, camping, fishing, etc. To me there's no better place to enjoy a pipe than at a high alpine lake on a clear night.

I have turned half my garage into an outside chillin' area. I have a few chairs, swing, rug, side table, lamp, and a smart TV. I really enjoy smoking out there when the temp is desirable. I also smoke at a couple B&Ms, my truck, and designated smoking areas at work.

When it comes to smoking in front of my boys (2 & 5), my biggest concern is the actual exposure to the smoke. If they are outside with me, I make sure we are in a well ventilated area. The first thing I teach them is that the pipe or cigar is HOT. As I am typing this, my two year old is pointing at the BoB logo above and saying, "Hot!". Smile To each there own. I don't hide it, and I'll teach them to respect it and understand it. They will not partake of it in my presence until they are the proper legal age. That's just me.

We live in a small, old (100 as of last year) row house that, years ago, someone decided to cut a garage into. The first floor isn't really living space, its more of a basement (utilities, storage, washer/dryer, etc.) but there is an ersatz garage that is not quite long enough to fit my car. It is just wide enough to fit my car, if I fold the mirrors. Long ago I built a a plywood workbench on one side and a shelving across the length of the other. I have an abandoned leather chair, an FM radio and a strong wifi signal. If the weather's nice, I'll sit out on the deck, but I like my little fortress of solitude.

I too keep my smoking from the little man. He's almost 3 and while I don't go sneaking around or hiding it from him, I just assume he stay reasonably oblivious. When the weather's warm I go out on the deck unless he's bopping around. When I'm in the garage with the space heater, he couldn't be less interested in where I've run off to anyway.

Him seeing me smoke isn't too much of a worry, just try not to make him directly inhale by being in the same room. I do worry about him going to day care and telling the teachers daddy smokes a pipe that could cause issues. Rolling Eyes

That's an interesting point you raise. I have been thinking about it quite a bit lately myself. My boy just turned one. When the weather is nicer, I'll smoke out on the deck while he bops around and keeps me company. I never smoke indoors with him around though. I'm concerned about how I'm am going to address the topic of why he shouldn't smoke when I walk around smoking to my hearts content. I wholeheartedly realize that it is hypocritical, but I would prefer that he never want to smoke anything cigarettes, cigars or pipes.

I used to have to go out to smoke. I frost bit three toes on my right foot one year (13 years ago) while working outside. The next year...same problem. Every winter it got harder to protect my toes. After three incidents of frostbite SWMBO now allows me to smoke a pipe inside.

When the weather is good we have a screened attached porch with porch swing and rattan furniture. The patio table is great for all the accessories you need to have. But these last few weeks with the temperature around 30-35 F, I seek out the shelter of the local Smoking Lounge/Tobacconist. About a mile from the house he has nice club chairs, two TV's for watching sports and the usual handful of cigar and pipe smokers. I do have at least one cigar purchased from him a week so when I come with my pipe he's okay with it. Our local pipe club meets once a month there in the evening. Turn out is strong. Most smoke aromatic tobacco so I'm not sure how welcomed I am with my British blends. But we talk pipes and its alright.

At home I smoke inside occasionally, but I always cycle the ventilation fan when I'm done or I click on a room fan to break up the haze of smoke. If it's nice out I try to smoke outside.

If I'm at work I have to smoke outside, or go a few blocks over to my boss' house and smoke there. I prefer to go to my boss' house since he has covered outdoor seating, a garage with sports cars and engines and engine parts everywhere, etc. If I smoke outside at work I just have to hope it's not raining , or not too windy. The only approved smoking area outside our building is wind swept and uncovered.

Very seldom do I smoke in my car. All my vehicles are manual and I'm just not able to drive safely with any distractions. If I do smoke in my car it's because I'm parked and the engine is off and that's about it.

My favorite place to smoke is...err....will be....my new home I'm moving into on the 8th! Technically the home is older than I am (built in the 70's), but it's new to me! haha

I smoke on my back porch. (that's a period) The deck is covered and I have a nice teak rocking chair and side table. I have fairly large back yard but it's still an "urban view".

My grandchildren see me smoke a pipe occasionally but they think it is a very "old thing" since I'm the only person they ever see with a pipe. It's getting rare in my neck of the woods to see anyone smoke tobacco. Austin's motto is "Keep Austin Weird" so I think it's more common to see someone smoking Mother Nature than someone smoking a fine tobacco.

When at home I smoke out on the screened porch, overlooking a wooded area of my property. My little bit of heaven. Even when it is 32 degrees it is still great...a special feel to it...like being in the great outdoors...with my trusty hound by my side (Pepe).

I smoke in the house, in the car, and anywhere else I can.
The only time I do not smoke is when my Grandsons are over.

Any place that allows it. Come to think of it, some places that don't! If you see me without a pipe in my gob and smoking is allowed, I'm probably asleep.

At this moment I am smoking where I always do. I am on the rooftop of my 16 floor apartment building on the Northeast coast of Korea. To the left of me is a bay surrounded by forests and a golf course and in front of me is the wide open sea. Its a great spot! When I get to the rooftop I climb a short spiral staircase that brings me to the highest point possible. Its a kind of crowsnest on top of the building. In that perch I sit crosslegged, fire up my pipe and, if it is in the evening I watch the lights on the sea. In the day I can watch white surf rolling in. If I turn around I can gaze at Seorak mountain, Korea's second highest peak.
