How do you get rid of the smell of heavy (cigarette) smoke?


We just purchased a home. The previous owner was a heavy smoker and we cant get rid of the smell. We've had the ceiling fans on, all the windows open, simmered cinnamon sticks/orange on the stove for a week and we've had a commercial air cleaner running. The smell just wont go away. We are going to paint the whole house, but were wondering if that will take away the smell completely. Thanks for your suggestions
