have a frank and open talk on the subject and tell him that it is affected you.

otherwise, there is little that you can do than to take appropriate 'defensive' measures.

Have you approached him and asked him politely to direct his smoke somewhere else?

Why don't you just close your windows?

He has every right to smoke within his own home.

Then itsn't it your problem? Talk to him nicely and tell him your problems. If he refuse, good luck. Call police also no use.

If he cannot smoke in his own home, where can he?

I did that when my neighbour upstairs smoke a lot at the windows and the smoke kept coming into my bedroom when there was a breeze.

It worked.
The worse is the breeze blows the ashes in.. I got that once.. @#$%^&*

I'm a smoker and I'm damn pissed at some people reaction towards smokers. Smokers also got rights you know ? I mean , it's not like I'm blowing directly in one's face. Yet some people walking at least a few metres away can start fanning their hands as if some sarin gas is coming after them and mind you , I'm those civic-minded smokers who would avoid crowded people and kids and yet I was given such 'nice gesture'.

Can imagine I was standing away from the crowd smoking and came one 'tai tai' walking pass me, fanning her hand and looked at me as if I'm from planet pluto. I'm already away from the crowd liao lah .. pls lah ... wan me to smoke on the 72nd floor of UOB plaza ??

Again, I'm not saying u can't complain, and there is indeed non civic minded smokers but pls try to understand and leave some space for us. ....to be continued.....

It's true. Smokers' rights seem to be not very important since smoking is seen to be a very bad thing. But then, the hand fanners have every right to fan their hands just as you have the right to smoke.

But how would she know what a Plutonian looks like? :)

it is not fair to ask him to stop smoking. smoker has rights too. you could request him to smoke somewhere else.
