My daughter a single mom aged 27, son age 5 and her boyfriend now live with us. Boyfriend pays $400 month rent. He smokes in their bedroom and throws the cigarettes out the window. Even though I smoke, I have never smoke in my own house, but rather go outside to smoke. I detest the smell of smoke as even with their door shut upstairs, I can still smell it in the other rooms. My daughter has tried asking him to quit in the house but he won't. To me it's a lack of respect for our beliefs. She is afraid if she pushes him that he will move out and honestly, we need his rent money to survive.
I should add he is not the father of our 5 yr old grandson but he is trying to be a daddy. They want to get married but are waiting for his divorce from his cheating wife to become final.Answer Question

I wouldn't let anyone to smoke into the house. We even have two smoke alarms. Tell him if he doesn't stop smoking you will kick him out of the house. I would never allow to a grown-up child to live in my house with a live in boyfriend. They can go and rent a room somewhere else. And you can rent your room for someone else. So you still will get the money you need but you can write a renting agreement what says where to smoke and where to put the cigarette's ends. It is not a tragedy if he moves out. You can get money from somewhere else. Really. Hugs.
