Smokers: Do you smoke in your bedroom?

This year it will have been 12 years since I started smoking. I used to smoke in my bedroom for the first 7 of those years, but in the past few years I've never smoked smoked in my bedroom. My parents both smoke in their room at their house, and I hate sleeping in their room since it always smells musty and dirty, even though by all other accounts, their room is always very neat and clean. I hate the smell of stale cigarette smoke first thing in the morning, and I noticed that it's really difficult to get the smell of cigarette smoke out of a mattress and duvets. I've aired them, steam cleaned the mattress, sprayed room spray and air freshener on them but even after 3 years, it still smells faintly. I don't think I'll ever smoke in my bedroom again, and I've never allowed anyone else to, either. So what about the rest of the smokers on MyLot. Do you smoke in your bedroom? Or is it strictly a smoke-free zone, like mine?

I used to date a guy that smoked in bed. I knew he did before I even seen him doing it. His sheets were full of burn holes, as he would doze off and drop his ciggerette. One night, we were watching t.v. and I seen him do it. I was always worried he was going to start a fire. I don't know if he ever broke the habit, but I hope he did. Smoking is dangerous in the first place, but I think smoking it bad is a bad thing to do. Unless you'r sure not to fall asleep and you've put your ciggerette out completely before falling asleep. You don't want to wake up to a smoke and fire.

I have smoked for about 40 years now, and the one place that i have never smoked was in the bed room, I was always afraid of falling asleep with one lit and burning the house down. My husband never smoked in the bed room either.

Hi breepeace, I always smoke in my bedroom. And I smoke there most of the time because I spend a lot of my time there in front of my laptop. But I always open the windows when I smoke. At least part of the smell will flow out from my room. It is bad actually because of the smell but I used to it already. I didn't smell something weird about it anymore. Maybe the non-smoker feel bad about it but no me. Happy mylotting and have a nice day.

I'm a smoker and the entire house is a no smoking zone! I smoke outside, never inside. I don't want my dogs exposed to the smoke and besides, I might want to sell the house someday and I don't want it to be stinky.

I'm not a smoker myself but my best friend is one. One weekend, I went in her bedroom and it smells awful. She said she smokes in her bedroom. I advised her not to, a bedroom should be a smoke-free zone.

I don't smoke at all. After i met my husband i persuded him to quit smoking . So we don't have this problem. Yes smoking in bedroom will dirty the air aroud and make uncomfortable feeling . My father used to smoke a lot but he quited after his retirement . Now he's feeling good without smoking . And his teeth are back to white color instead of yellow color.

I don't smoke but my boyfriend does. When we had our own places and I stayed at his he smoked everywhere, including the bedroom, it was horrible! Now we live together and most of the time he smokes outside. Occasionally he smokes in the lounge, but NEVER in the bedroom, out of respect for me.

hai I never smoke in my bed room. Even I never smoke in my house inside because no ladies like the smoking smell. Smoking inside the bedroom nay cause some fire accident by which we have to face a lot of trouble. Even the smoke also cannot find way to go out. It will be inside the room causing bad smell for others and even for the smokers/ That is why I donot smoke inside the house and also advice not to smoke inside the house itself

No, I always go outside to smoke. It makes your house smell and stains your walls/furniture. Also it's not fair to fill your house or room with second hand smoke especially if others are not smokers themselves.

I don't smoke. I don't like people who smokes. My Dad used to smoke when I was a kid, but now he stopped smoking. When he used to smoked, he never cared whether it is a bed room or drawing room. He used to smoke even in bed room with windows open.

Hi there breepeace. I am a smoker and that is one place I DO NOT smoke. I think for me to smoke in my bedroom is really not a good place. I knew this lady my mom was friends with that was smoking in her bedroom and she caught her place on fire because she had all her grandsons papers underneath her bed. I really felt bad for her and even though she had insurance they could not replace all her pictures she had kept throughout the years. She has since passed God rest her soul but that is one reason why I do not smoke in bedroom at all. Plus I have an upstairs and that is where my girls bedrooms are too and I do not want their rooms or their clothes smelling like smoke. Nice discussion happy mylotting to you.

Smoking in bedroom is not a good idea if your family stays along. I feel that you should care about them as passive smoking is more injurious. Hence no-smoking in bedrooms for me.

I really hate smoking. smoking is forbidden in my house in principle. In practice smoking is allowed in bathroom room. God is not allowed to smoke in my bedroom.
