I think its definitely your right to smoke in your home, but once that smell (and deadly carcinogens) begins interfering with someone else's life (in their home) that there is a problem. I live down the hall from my buildings superintendent, and he is a smoker. He is not supposed to smoke in his apartment, but I'm sure he does sometimes as our whole hall smells like smoke at least once a week. It's embarrassing to bring friends and family to my apt when it smells like this, they always comment on how nasty it smells. I think you should buy a detached home, or smoke ecigs. A dog barking doesn't cause cancer, smoking does, it is the single greatest cause of preventable death in the US.

I lived in an apartment once with a lot of serious med students, and we had a few friends over, and has a couple noise complaints. We were almost evicted as the apt. had a very strict policy. I was so frustrated that all of these neighbors had taken the time to call and email our landlord, but couldn't walk down the hall to let us know we were bothering them! I would have happily quieted down had I known I had been disturbing anyone.
