    Lit a San Cristobal Maestro as soon as the game ended. Lakers. World Champions again. I may smoke half of three cigars a year, but sometimes they are awesome. So's the tequila and champagne. It's a festive occasion thing only for me. And this is something I celebrate. Woot!

        I wish I still had my hookah. It was way too much work to use by myself, so I got rid of it.

          I smoke a few a year... good stuff. Even at 1 a week, i'd just write if off and move on.... no biggie.

            My 2 favorites are the Ghurka triple cognac infused cigars that come in the glass tube with the wax. Probably doused in sugar but 1 cigar every few months I'm sure I'll recover from. And my other favorite is a Tabac Dulce coffee infused. Both of those are really smooth with little bite.
            I also have a small collection of tobacco pipes that get used once or twice a year.

            In total I smoke 8-10 cigars a year and 10 or so bowls of tobacco from the pipe every year. Not too worried about the side effects from that.

              I smoke the odd one occasionally, and my husband is a real cigar aficionado. We also have a hookah pipe, which is fun.

              I only smoke on the odd occasion, once a month, once every 3 months, or so. My husband smokes one every night in Baghdad, but when he gets home it might reduce.

                Nicotine is really harmful, regardless of method of delivery (smoked or not).

                I used to smoke a pack a day and managed to quit. It's hard but worth it. I tried cigars, pipe, snus and other tobacco products (shisha). Some may be slightly less harmful than others, but they are all bad. I read somewhere that to match the extra heart disease risk from smoking I would have to gain ~ 75lbs. Think about that.
                Indians may have come to the new world shortly before agriculture started in a few old world places. But most Indians, like most other people around the world, remained Groks for a long time, in some cases until the 19th century. However, tobacco use may have started around the time some Indian cultures started farming. Not much seems to be known.
