    Tobacco (Cigars)

    Primal Fuel
    Hold your horses

    I'm a cigar aficionado, I love my cigars. I've got 2 humidors full of fine quality sticks, I love collecting and I love the paraphernalia, it's one of the few things in the world that is still a hand made export. Hand made cigars are almost an art.

    I know tobacco isn't the beacon of health, but i'd like to see an article (in MDA easy reading format!) about Tobacco, not cigarettes, old school tobacco. How has it played its part in history? Was it around during grok times?

    Enjoying a good cigar is a part of my life I love to enjoy (Granted I only smoke one a week or so). Anyone else a casual cigar smoker around here?

    I used to like the occasional cigar, but I gave that up many years ago. Right now my gf smokes cigarettes and pot and I would love not to have to smell that stuff. These days I don't want anything to do with anything that's smoked.
    If it brings you pleasure, I'd say go for it.

    tobacco is a new world plant, so post-Grok.
    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.

    Mmmmm, love the smell of cigars. I've tried smoking them, but I inhale, so that doesn't work too well. :-)

    I noticed "Bolivar" even before the pic....

    Just had one the other night.

    A good cigar and a good wine or even better, distilled spirits, is one of life's simple pleasures.

    It has nothing to do with being Primal or not, or possible health issues. Smoking a few sticks a week will not cause health problems (maybe spousal, but I've had a gf that shared with me.) Cigarettes, keeping that nicotine pumping for 16 hours a day is a lot different than a long, slow, peaceful end-of-day smoke. Cigarettes are smoked for the nicotine ("nicotine delivery system," anyone?), most cigar smokers don't really care about it, it's the flavors, the rituals, and the new mindset.

    I smoke more in the warm weather, less in the chilly. Tonight I'm going to have my go-to Honduran Consuegra, dark maduro wrapper, a heavy Cuban style smoke, and some Canadian Mist whiskey. Smoothest stuff out there at twice the price.

    Enjoy life.

    For whatever reason, the system here cut off my opening statement, which was on the lines of "I caught the Bolivar name right away even before seeing the pic.....Just had one the other night."

    Don't feel too bad about the Scotch...it is a Respectable Middling Choice according to Mark Sisson: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/low-carb-alcohol/

    As far as cigars, yes. Padron Anniversary Pyramide's are my favorites.


    My "everyday smokers" although I don't smoke but once a week, are either Fuente's, CAO's or regular Padron (maduro's). I haven't noticed any real changes, other than not indulging but once a week with a nice Highland's Single Malt, typically 18 year old MacAllen unless I run out, then it is Knob Creek Bourbon.
