Should you ash a cigarette in the garden? Watch

    I live with my parents, they don't know I smoke and I'd prefer to keep it that way. If I go outside to smoke, I don't know where to ash my cigarette. I don't want to ash it on the ground as that leaves ash on the ground(obviously) which isn't nice for my parents. There's no ashtray to use, as I said I don't particularly want them knowing I smoke.

    Is it OK to ash it in the grass or soil? Ash is a naturally occurring material but cigarettes have things like tar in them, so I dont know if it biodegrades.

    Go for a walk and smoke instead. Ash will be noticeable against grass.

    The real issue with secret smoking is that you will smell of it, go for a walk.

    What about in soil? :/
    Going for a walk is a pain, it means walking down our gravel drive which usually wakes my mum up. Would prefer to smoke on the garden on the patio outside, just want to find somewhere to ash it.

    Get a coke can and ash into that, then chuck it into the bin, then you don't have to worry about the grass and have a makeshift ashtray.

    the ash will wash into the soil and become unnoticeable... The filter tips will be your biggest evidence disposal problem, and that you will smell of fagsmoke.

    very expensive and unhealthy, I suggest you find another hobby tbh.

    Yeah tbh if you want to smoke just vape... still get the nicotine, but no tar/other sh*t and no lingering smell on your body and far cheaper. And it tastes good.

    You get to look super super cool while doing it too

    yeah, unless your parents are known to inspect every blade of grass I doubt they will see it



    just make sure you throw the butt away somewhere else
