  • Kick them out. Your house, your rules.

  • Kick them out. Is it a friend or your spouse?

  • Wow.. my husband and I are both smokers.. but if ANYONE ever smoked in my home I would show them the door!! We have never smoked in our home or our vehicles, even before we had children.

  • tell them to respect your wishes, its your house so what you say goes. If it's your husband and he must smoke tell him to go outside ans smoke, And if he\she is a friend tell him or her to smoke his or her cigerette before coming into your home. because there will be no more smoking in your house, and tell them why.

  • I would remind them that I am a non-smoker and I do not want smoking in my home, and if they can't follow my 'rules' they can get out! I would also tell them if I smell it again they are out the door!

  • Tell them "You either stop smoking in my house or you're out on your ass". Period.

  • I would give them a choice, stop smoking or get out. Just like kids some people will try you to see what they can get away with. Just be firm and tell them how you feel.
