I am the only one that smokes in my house...and for the most part only in my office area. I have a medium size hepa air filter unit in this room and a large hepa air filter unit in the family room that runs 24/7. Seems to do the trick for us.
One last thing...make sure to empty the ashtrays. Never leave cigar butts in a room overnight.

I would recommend a Heppa Filter and an Ozone Generator
But Following the suggestions of the guy above this post is a good idea too!!

Ditto about the hepa filter. You can also get ionizer's which really help purify the air. Plus the one I saw doesnt have any moving parts or costly filters. The charge between both rods creates air flow. And to keep it working all you have to do is wipe the rods down every so often.

You can find hepa air filter units everywhere. (just do a search for Hepa air filters) The filters can be a bit costly but that depends on what you're budgeting to keep your house from smelling like a cigar. I replace mine about once every 7 to 12 months. You will spend a couple hundred dollars plus for a really good room hepa filter. As you come down in price you trade off things such as noise levels and actual effectiveness of the unit.

btw: when I said Ozone Generator, I meant Ionizer, I get them confused

Good rule of thumb though for that kind of thing... Take the cubic footage of your room (L times W), divide by 5 and that's the cfm rating you'll need to suck the air out of one room. I say a 256 just for price reasons, that'll be fairly cheap, and the dryer ducting you could get from HD too.
Good luck and welcome to the boards
OOOo yeah, your lookin for what's called a squirel cage fan. Much more powerful that the crap bathroom fans.

L x W x H /5
um, that'd be the proper formula...
Been burning too many lars's as incense again

Good info here. We've had a few threads started along these lines in the last few months and this thread is very informative.
Too bad we never heard from today's birthday boy ever again
