  • I enjoy a good cigar once in a while...

    My favorite at the moment is the Alec Bradley Prensado, but the Camacho is also pretty satisfying, and when in the mood for a lighter one, Romeo Y Juliet is consistently good.

    I've never been a cigarette smoker, but somehow an occasional cigar seems okay to me, and I only smoke 1-4 per month.

    Anybody else enjoy good cigars?

      Which cigar is your fave?

      I've found that cigars pair really well with a high quality absinthe.

              I'm sorry to hear about your father.

              From my research of cigars and cancer, it appears there is no correlation between smoking up to one cigar per day and cancer. There are correlatons with people who regularly smoke more than one per day.

              I think the daily, unrelenting toxins we are breathing from vehicle and factory emissions and gases given off by pavement are largely responsible for many cancers, which would explain why people who have never smoked get lung cancer.

              Plus, most cancer studies seem to focus mainly on cigarette smokers, not cigar smokers (or occasional ones, at that), and cigarettes contain some ridiculous amount, like 400, known carcinogenic chemicals.

                Well, a properly smoked cigar would give you mouth or throat cancer rather than lung, but yeah. Tobacco is not so awesome.

                  I had this idea in my silly little head, back in my late teens, that smoking cigars was "punk" and looked cool. I smoked one with a couple friends, enjoyed it, got a headache, and have not had another since. I don't enjoy smelling like smoke.

                    I like a good one once in a while, but it is so infrequent I couldn't even tell you which ones.

                      Totally put off them as a child, they smell disgusting (and yes, a father who died from lung cancer here too. He was a complete bastard so not missed at all, and was a pipe smoker)

                        Don't smoke 'em myself, but... If it's organically grown, non-GMO leaf, it's totally Primal, amirite?

                          I smoke cigar's pretty regularly, 3-4 a week, so no quite daily, but almost. I prefer Ashton as my first choice.

                              Not a smoker, personally. I don't like the smell at all.

                              However, I can't see the harm in the occasional high-quality cigar. If that's your thing, have at it. I wouldn't do it beyond a few times a month, however.
