    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.

    OP, love me a Romeo Y Julieta. So tasty, especially with a drink at night after the sun goes down.

    Indeed, seems to be a lack of decent parenting.
