Smoking inside the house?

DarwinDarwin Posts: 3
I've only recently become interested in cigars. I've had a few in college, bachelor parties, etc. My experiences have been some good, some were bad; the bad ones were likely cheap or poorly stored cigars. Anyway, I've ordered a few 5-packs of cigars I think I might like. Then I realized that it's the middle of winter here in PA and while I don't want to saturate my house with lingering cigar smoke, I also would rather not have to smoke them outside in the evening having to bundle up in below-freezing temps. How bad does cigar smoke penetrate furniture (sofas, etc.)? Who here smokes inside their house and if so is there something you do during/after smoking to de-funk the room?

    I do all the time, but my family loves the smell.

    Oh, if it makes a difference, I'm moving into a log cabin, so it has pretty bad insulation, I use a wood-burning stove for heat and oil burning furnace for backup. Theres no carpet all hardwood floors.

    It's fabrics and carpets that hold the smell the most.  Hardwood floors and leather furniture will minimize it, but curtains/drapes are in most rooms.

    A negative ion/ozone generator will help if you run that for a few hours after your smoking session is over.

    All of that is dependent on how much smoke you can remove during the cigar.  Brad has a nice fan that fits in his window, one of those with two fans that people use in summer to either bring cool air in or draw stale air out, and that would be worth checking into.

    If he has another cabin and some day needs another guy that's good at sitting around doing nothing all day you can inform him you know just the guy lol

    Every winter I staple up plastic sheeting around my back porch and set up my space heater. As long as it isn't bitterly cold it does ok. Though sometimes I just sit right over the heater.

    After smoking in my studio I burn sage in a hand sized soapstone vessel. Any Native American craft supply business sells sage as it is used in ceremony. Sage smells a lot better than stale tobacco.

    Do you have a basement?  A man-town/smoking lounge in the basement is always a viable option.
