Can I leave my house to smoke?

Am I risking a fine if I leave home to have a cigarette during lockdown? I don't like doing it indoors because even opening all the windows doesn't help getting rid of the smell and I don't have a front or back garden. In normal times I would go and sit on a bench just around the corner, but I've looked at the guidelines and smoking definitely doesn't seem to come under any of the reasons why you can leave home. I have up to 10 a day and I know there have been lots of fines handed out in the area so I'm a bit worried I will be caught out.
I'm anonymous because I don't want people on here to think less of me because I'm a smoker

If you're that concerned about it you could just smoke out of your front door?

Why don't you go on a walk and take your cigarettes? It could actually be a great opportunity to try to cut down if you know you'll have to exercise to earn one. Either way, good for your health.

Got to be honest I'm being a bit dumb here because I never really thought of that

Morning

Why not some in your property/bedroom, keep windows closed and the dangerous smoke to yourself and enjoy it 100%%???

My OH has an apartment in central London that we now rent out. Lovely palce but one on the people in the apartment below woould apepar on the balcony and smoke spreading the stench, dangerous smoke into his and others property they had to close their windows.

So please smoke inside no reason to go outside. Enjoy but let others live withoutyour smoke

Unless the bench is in the middle of a town or a busy area with covid marshalls/ poilce walking/driving past constantly and you are sitting by yourself I doubt anyone would bat an eyelid at you having a smoke there.

Just go outside, smoking is an addiction and thus should be counted as acceptable to stop the smoke damaging your flat/house/other applicable residences.
What harm is smoking outside doing to anyone? Who are you next to?

I'm as respectful as possible which is why I'm somewhat against standing in the doorway/doing it out the window etc... But just because I smoke doesn't mean I want my house to constantly smell of it.

For sure, FYI I did not say EVERYONE but a large MAJORITY

do you have a car/vehicle, smoke in that with windows closed.
if not, I'd rather you stayed in your flat and smoked and closed all windows save the others
suffering your smoke.

FYI, I do take my hats off to you as you appear to be one of the few sensible smokers if that can be said.

I like the taste of cheese but definitely not the smell. I like the taste of **** but it doesn't mean I want to smell them 24/7

but considering it makes you and your clothes smell of it, whenever you're next to someone they will have to breathe in that awful smell. doesn't matter how much you wash.

So you go outside and inflict your dangerous smoke on others??? That may work for you but not for me and millions of others that are demanding to have smoking banned in all public palces inc vehicles.

Please read the thread but I'm here to help. I'd "have you" smoke in your own fully enclsoed space and expect you to have a shower, bath and clean clothes before you went out.
