    Elcarion: That would probably by my limit as far as smoking cigars if I could get back into it. I would just really like to find a place somewhere here in NC that I can buy them. I wouldnt really need a humidor because if I bought one I would plan on smoking it within a day or two. I could just keep it in a place in my house where it isn't really dry. I would say that would make us a "casual" smoker which is probably the way to go. A cigar has a lot of tabacco in it, to be smoking more than that.

    Anyone know of any websites only with decent prices where I can order from?

    I think smoking is a disgusting, filthy habit. BUT, then again, that's just my opinion.

    A local tv ad reminds me that smoking can cause permanent loss of eye sight.

    Got a tv tuner card young? :)

    Suprised how harsh some of you are on people smoking, in fact I'm suprised how the general public is so harsh on them. I personally don't smoke, but since I was probably 15 or 16 I think I've averaged 2 cigars a year. Someone want to lecture me on that :)

    I don't really smoke anymore myself. The only reason I smoked a few cigars was when I worked in Haiti, all I had to do everyday after work was sit around and drink beer, or rum and smoke a cigar once in a while. Wasn't safe to go out on the streets at night so, stay home and get drunk. The fact is, here at home I can't find anybody that likes the smell of them, unless it's one of the aromatic kind, and I really don't like them. so I don't smoke anymore. I even tried a pipe, but those things are to damn hard to keep lit, it's to much like work.

    hehe olefarte, I also smoked a pipe for about 6 months. I got to where I didn't like the taste at all anymore. I do like the smell though. I still can remember the smell when a customer would come in and buy some pipe tobacco I had to pour some out of the glass container and push it out wiht my hand. I would smell like pipe tobacco all day hehe.

    I've smoked so many different things it's crazy. Probably 50 different cigars, 20 different kinds of clove cigarettes, 20-30 different brands of cigarettes, canadian cigarettes, french cigarettes, Indian "Bidi's" (rolled in a brown leaf that looks like a joint -- contains some fiberglass I think & I know it contains a small amount of arsenic in each bidi -- good smoke though, but not for everyday smoking), etc...
    Those are the benefits of working at a smoke shop. I would NOT recommend trying canadian or french cigarettes. If I remember correctly, canadian cigarettes are VERY nasty because Canada is not allowed to add ANY preservatives to cigarettes or other additives so they are supposedly 100% pure tobacco (supposedly!). French cigarettes are very strong. If you're used to smoking Marlboro Reds or even filterless cigarettes a French cigarette still may knock you on your butt :).

    I've seen so many different styles of packs of cigarettes it's crazy. Cigarettes in tin packs, packs that open from the side, from the top, from the bottom, etc.

    I even smoked Marijuana in college for about 9 months.

    If you smoke and you haven't tryed Bidi's I suggest trying them out., but DO NOT buy the flavored Bidi's!!!!!! BAD IDEA!!! Get the regular ones!!! If you buy the flavored Bidi's then I suggest having a barf bag on standby. Or at least a close pin to put on your nose so you can't smell the smoke when your smoking them.
