    I really enjoy a good cigar. Are there any other cigar smokers out there?

    Here are a few that I have smoked in the past few days.

    Rocky Patel Vintage 1992. Probably my favorite stogie.


    Don Diego corona. A nice mild cigar.


    Vibe by Rocky Patel. Nice creamy smoke.


    Ghurka Legand. This is a very good cigar thats just loaded with flavor.

    nice , I hate all smoking or smoke but somehow I can stand the smell of cigars better then cigarettes ?

    Is there a different way you smoke cigars compared to cigarettes.
    The dangers are the same ? corrupted lungs and lung cancer ?

    Im not trying to be so dark minded here, I love the smell of pipe tobacco aswell the only one I dislike and cant stand of all 3 variants is cigarettes.

    The only one famous I ever heared of is Cuban Havana.

    Actually it is very different the way you smoke a cigar. When you smoke a cigar you do not inhale. You draw the smoke into your mouth, hold it for a few seconds, and then release it. Also when smoking a cigar you only draw on it once every 45-60 seconds. Most cigar smokers do not chain smoke cigars either. We treat it as a way to relax as opposed to "programmed response" the way many cigarette smokers do after meals or when drinking, etc.

    Handmade cigars are all 100% natural. They consist of nothing but aged and dryed tobacco leaves. Aging the leaves allows most of the nicotine to leave the tobacco leaf. Some will have flavors added but I have never tried any of them.

    Since you dont inhale a cigar the risk of lung cancer is very very low. In fact, many doctors and insurance companies do not classify cigar smoking as smoking.

    Thanks for clearing that up If I ever find myself in company where im being offered a Cigar ill take it up and smoke it .
    Dont know the effect on teeth by long term smoking of cigars though I know the cigarettes kill your teeth and gums. but as with everything do it with moderation I guess.

    I just cannot tolerate cigars. I smoked a pipe for a while, but I gave it up because I found it too cumbersome. Cigars choke me something terrible.

    If you subscribe to the theory that STRESS
    causes a great majority of afflictions....many of them life-threatening
    Then maybe you agree that alleviating stress in any way possible is a good thing.
    Pipe and cigar smoking are 2 ways I use to keep me mellow.
    I live and work in Southern California and the commute alone is enough to make me go Michael Douglas (see the movie Falling Down)
    I do agree with you tho....
    Everything in moderation.

    I generally smoke a cigar every morning on my way to work, and occasionally in the evenings. I have a humidor full of expensive cigars that I gathered when I was more into trying different brands, but I've settled on some reasonably priced daily smokers: JR Ultimate Rothschilds (Honduran), and H. Upmann Robustos (Dominican). These are flavorful, hand made cigars that don't break the bank, so I don't have to feel guilty about setting them on fire!

    I smoke a good cigar here and there :D

    Probably about 3 or 4 a week at the most these days. Since I have an infant in the house I am banished to smoking in the garage again these days. I used to work in a tobacco shop back in the late 90's and routinely smoked 5 or so cigars per day! So I've tried a little bit of everything at one point or another.

    I love them, but I haven't gotten to smoke a good one (or one at all really) in a long time...

    although right near where I work now there is a cigar shop with some inviting looking chairs...

    Haven't smoked much as of late. Too cold at night here lately (I don't smoke in the house) and I've had a cold, so I couldn't enjoy it anyway!

    But I do like Arturo Fuente 858, Punch, and H. Upmann lonsdales. CAO Italia cigars are good, too.

    I'm just getting into cigars now. The brand that I can really remember is Davidoff (special T I think) - because they were so much better than the relatively few others I've tried.

    You have good tastes my friend. Special T isn't my favorite of the line, but I have a good friend that hails that size as cigar nirvana. I'm a big fan of the whole special series, especially the Special R and Entreacto. I keep a few Double R around for when I have 2 hrs give it the attention it deserves.

    Davidoffs are f'n expensive, I'll admit, but the quality is always superior. I'd rather smoke 1 cigar a week and it be phenominal then smoke a mediocre one every day.

    Don't do this to me guys. I got 20 cigars a couple of weeks ago and I will be looking for a humidor. Which reminds me, I need to go read some things about humidors. I recognize some tasty cigars from years ago. BTW, who sells decent cigar samplers? I hate buying 20 at a time of one cigar. The same goes for 1-2 at our almost non-existent cigar stores around here. They charge way to much. :D
