Shouldn't "Do not smoke at my place!" be correct, as well?

I think it should be accepted, Duolingo has previously accepted 'at my place' as a translation for 'bij mij'.

How about "Don't smoke with me?"

That would be "Rook niet met mij!".

Why does "Niet roken bij mij" not work?

Shouldn't this be 'Rook niet dichtbij mij" instead? I was under the impression that bij didn't have anything to do with distance.

I don't think this is right, bij doesn't imply proximity

What do you mean with "ik rook het geregeld spullen"

I looked it up in a dictionary app. I was trying to say, "I smoke the regular stuff." I figured it was wrong, but I tried anyways.
