    So joking aside Geoff when I told my fantastic wife of 34 years she was astounded. A reality check is definitely needed I'm afraid. I deal with anti social behaviour all the time and boilers and smoking at a range of 40m doesn't even register on the scale.

    Build a mancave or get a shed, far cheaper and the saves the wifes worries. Plus great for winter too.

    Thanks for the support chaps! Is smoking inside say a shed (which I do have) not a bit gross? Looking for practical solutions here

    Ask the neighbours if your smoking and showering actually bothers them, do this in front of your wife problem solved.
    And yes smoking in 'a shed' is one stage off nipping out for a quick ham shank, not exactly the way to enjoy your cigars.

    The problem is if they say yes then I'd be an arse to continue. Except the showering which is kinda mandatory. They're actually quite cool, but if they asked me if their piano playing annoyed me I'd say yes, then we'd neither of us be allowed to have any fun.

    I was just venting tbh - the problem is my, otherwise superb, wife.

    Seriously, I must have a jolly decent wife. Not only does she enjoy the aroma of cigars she also always tastes them and has a smoke. Actually, my kids (in their mid to late 20s now) also enjoy the activity! They don't smoke themselves but a good cigar is something they appreciate...that and fine whiskey, rum and brandy. Brung up right, you might say.

    Anyway, my point...if my wife said I had to stand in the garden I'd be livid and just say no. And if she complained on behalf of my neighbours who felt they had to shut the window, then yes, I might think I've got the wrong wife.

    My wife is excellent generally, except that she seems to care oh so much about what the neighbours think - can't have the music too loud, can't take the bins out or wash the car without a shirt on, can't shower late or smoke etc etc. Quite odd.

    Well its time for a frank discussion. "you care too much about them. Maybe I care too little about them. How about we compromise...I won't smoke my cigars outside between the hours of 2330 and 0500. I'll smoke em inside during that period"
