Do you have an ashtray in your home?

We had a pool party this weekend & some people invited were smokers. I took out ashtrays that I haven't seen in years. It got me thinking that I can't remember the last time I saw an ashtray for sale at a store. Wow have times changed!

Do you have one?

  • I have several that were my grandmother's, several of which she made. No one smokes at my house and I doubt the kids would know that they are ashtrays.

  • No ashtrays. If you want to smoke in my house, you need to go outside and at least 20 feet from any windows or doors. I hate the smell of cigarette smoke

  • I have some, for cone incense. I'm not a smoker and never have been, but I got one for cone incense because it was easier to use than the burner that usually comes with cones.

    I remember when you used to be able to find them in Wal-Mart and stuff, and you're right, I haven't seen them in forever.

  • I've never owed an ash tray & will never allow smoking in our home. Although wal-mart does still sell them. I over heard someone looking for one, and they've had one.
    Our entire town is pretty much smoke free. No smoking in all public buildings.

  • My ex was a smoker, sowe had ashtrays, but I haven't had one around since my divorce. I really can't tolerate smoke in my house because of my asthma and migraines. It's wild, though, many people who didn't smoke used to have ashtrays in their homes just in case visitors needed them. You don't see that anymore.
