My mother was a 2 pack a day smoker, even while suffering for COPD and on oxygen...lol. God I miss that crazy lady. I have had a few occasions of strong cigarette odor in my smoke free home, when I am alone, usually just relaxing on the couch or such. It catches me off guard when it happens. I don't know if its my mom or not but its comforting to think it could be.

My house was built in mid 1700's and it was the home of a couple of blacksmiths. I frequently smell cigarette smoke at night when all windows are closed. We live on a country road and no close neighbors. My collie will bark late at night. When I check on him, he sometimes wants to go out, but usually will settle when I tell him to go to bed. My husband never smells the smoke.
Many years ago I lived in a rented historical house built in 1768. The first 4 mornings there, I smelled coffee. My husband did not smell it. The smell would wake us in the morning, so no one had made coffee in our kitchen. After 4 days, I never smelled it again. Then my mom came to visit when our son was born. The first morning she was there, she got up early (my husband and I were still asleep) and told me that afternoon that she smelled the perked coffee. That house was also in the woods and it was winter, so no windows were open. After those incidents, we never smelled the coffee again. I said it was a welcoming ghost.

This has happened to me twice recently. One morning I left my bedroom and went into the den and it smelled like smoke around the window unit ac area. I just assumed someone had been burning something outside and the wind blew the smell threw the vents. I went back into the bedroom and came back an hour later, the smell was gone.

A couple weeks ago, I smelled smoke in the living room. I looked around everything was okay. I shrugged it off and came back less than 30 minutes later and the smell was gone. Weird.

Maybe it was the spirit of my uncle. He used to smoke like crazy. LOL

Thanks for the responses guys.
Consult another doctor! If you smell something no one else does, you may have a sinus infection or some sort of ENT problem.
