Is my new housemate smoking indoors?

My new housemate smokes. He is supposed to smoke outside exclusively, however bits of our house still smell of smoke. I've never seen him smoke indoors but we are often in separate rooms. Is the smell normal or is he smoking indoors sometimes? He has lived here for 3 weeks so far.

What was it like when everyone smoked?

I'm reading mid-century noir again, and keep coming up against the ubiquity of smoking. I realize I may be an outlier, but to me the smell of smoke is overwhelming and cuts so far into things like perfume, food smells, clean smells, that I have a hard time parsing the descriptions that don't acknowledge this. Is this just an issue of the fish in the water, or was there sort of an underlying understanding that everything smelled of stale smoke that was so understood that it's never mentioned?

Nicotine-Free Cigarette Look-Alike?

I recently quit smoking. Yay! For my Cruella De Vil costume for Halloween, I've already got a cigarette holder and I'd like something to put in it that, you know, looks like a cigarette. The thing here is that it absolutely, 100%, no wiggle-room cannot have any nicotine. What are my options here? [more inside]

Vintage Clothing reeking of cigarettes, what do I do with them?

Is there a relatively cheap (i.e. non-dry clean) way to get years of cigarette smoke out of somewhat sensitive vintage clothing (i.e. silk, wool, fur)? I see a lot of weird suggestions online but has anyone here had to go through this and what's the best solution? Also, what is the most ethical way to either sell or donate fur? Some context below in the break. [more inside]

Why does the foil inside Camel Filters pull out easily, but not Lights?

Camel Filters and Camel Lights (now Blues) both have a foil-coated paper covering the cigarettes underneath the lid. In Filters, both the front and back halves of the foil pull out easily. But in Lights, only the front half pulls out easily. The back half is attached to the pack somehow. Why?

On a lanai in southwest florida, there is some heavy daily smoking going on. Even with three walls made of screens that open to outside, the smell remains. Looking to find ways to mitigate the stale and persistent smoke smell.

Shmoke and a Pancake - ECig Style

Hello Hive Mind! A few years ago I quit smoking cigarettes And I have absolutely no desire to smoke them again. But on the other hand, I miss the social aspects of smoking and enjoying it. Enter Ecigs. Mrs. NiumX and I are thinking it might be fun to get an ecig system that offers fun and interesting options with no (or low) nicotine. Flavors, whatever. Older Asks seem a few years old. What is new? So any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Need help picking a good E-cigarette that will get people talking.

I need some advice about a first time e-cigarette buy. I really want to get my smoker friends all switched to electronic cigarettes over regular ones because they straight up stink and are grose. I used to smoke myself and quit just fine under the cold turkey method. But I don't mind buying one for myself smoking non nicotine content cartridges to kind of set up a sort of "Viral Marketing" campaign to my friends. I have been looking into stick style ecig's like the "M 401" and the "Janty Mini" I heard the Janty series have a cartridge that can hold a huge number of refill drops as well (although I don't recall the name of the carts or for what specific Ecig it works with). Any advice on this is appreciated. I would love to buy the Janty because you know where its coming from but if there are any other sources please let me know in the reply's. [more inside]
