So tonight im sitting here and I start to smell cigarette smoke. my whole house smells very strongly of it, like someone is in the house smoking.  my dh smells it too. Not the first time it has happened either. This is something that has happened off and on all last spring a,summer, and fall. my 2 kids have smelled it too. non of us smoke neither of us ever has,(my kids are 5yrs and 8yrs). We live in a house and our neighbors are spaced far enough from us that we are 99% there is no way its them, unless they are coming in our yard. I first thought that maybe it was because of previous residents but it only happens at the same time at night (8pm-12am). We are really concerned that we might have a lurker around our house. my 2 kids and I are home alone almost every night as my husband works nights. We are gonna put paddle locks on the gates to the back yard. Is it really possible that someone is really out there lurking for some reason?? got any ideas for what we can do about it???

Any teenage neighbors? Maybe they are sneaking into your yard to smoke without mommy and daddy knowing? I would get motion detection lights and a dog..and a gun..but that's just me..I'm paranoid ..lol

Could be a lurker. More likely a ghost or another otherworldly entity.

we have thought about it maybe being a neighbors kid. we have no way to prove it though. cant have a dog here as we are renting. but the gun and security light are great ideas.
