Our next door neighbor husband and wife (shomer shabbos) smoke all day and night in their yard. They come outside to smoke every 15 minutes. We can’t keep our windows open like priseners. Its their yard and can’t stop them we are prisoners in our own home. We asked nicely and nothing has changed. Any recomendationsMay 18, 2012 2:50 am at 2:50 am #875236
Let me add: they would never smoke in their home, and if their children are outside they will not smoke. But to let smoke come to our house is okMay 18, 2012 2:51 am at 2:51 am #875237popa_bar_abbaParticipant
A. There are systems you can install which will clean the air, so that you can’t smell it. It is expensive, but cheaper than moving, and cheaper than being mad at your neighbors.
B. Offer them money to stop smoking outside.May 18, 2012 2:51 am at 2:51 am #875238OneOfManyParticipant
a) Sue them.
b) Buy a fan.May 18, 2012 3:03 am at 3:03 am #875239Sam2Participant

Relaxation: There’s a city in northern Michigan called Hell. I assumed 😉 you were talking about that. And yes, it does freeze over just about every winter.May 18, 2012 7:10 am at 7:10 am #875243HealthParticipant
relaxation – Offer to go to the store to purchase their cigs for them. Buy them the strongest, non-filter you can find (Camel perhaps). This way you won’t have to wait years before they are living in the hospital or the cemetary, it will only be months.May 18, 2012 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #875244ZeesKiteParticipant
“..living in.. or the cemetery..” How does one do that?May 18, 2012 1:56 pm at 1:56 pm #875245takahmamashParticipant
I highly doubt there is anything you can do.May 18, 2012 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #875246LeiderLeider…Participant
Put on irritating music right out your window as soon as they come out to smoke, and shut it when they leave. Keep on doing this until they stop.May 18, 2012 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #875247writersoulParticipant
Apart from bringing it up to them non-confrontationally, all you can really do is move or buy a ventilation system.
A lot depends on your relationship with these neighbors.
Do they realize that the smoke is also getting to their kids even if they only smoke outside? It isn’t stopping the smoke, and they are seriously endangering their kids (not to mention you).May 18, 2012 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #875248mommamia22Participant
Invite their kids over as soon as they start smoking. When they act surprised, tell them you figure they can breath in the second hand smoke together with you…
