Does anyone here smoke cigars or know much about them? Most of my friends are 18 now and I'll be 18 soon so I'm going to try one. Any suggestions, tips, or anything on what would be good for a first one?

Don't inhale too much smoke, be sure to have a drink handy, and don't afraid to stop smoking on it for a little while; you can get sick pretty easily. Honestly you would probably enjoy it more if you drank a couple beers beforehand.

This reminds me, I have a huge friggen stogey sitting that needs smoked. It's probably the size of 4 swisher sweets.

I bought some cigars when I was in Cuba

I suppose they taste all right but it renders my tastebuds useless for quite a while after I smoke them.

Don't get big ones, if you aren't already a smoker then it'll be ****! get a medium sized one, and get one that's vanilla flavoured, it'll cut the taste of the cigar.

It'll relax you awesomely, and is especially good when drunk!

I personally really like cigars.


Picking them out isn't too hard, just ask the people where you buy it from what it is like and pick something you think sounds pleasant . I like Bev-mo, they have descriptions of all their cigars displayed.


Take it slow and don't fully inhale the smoke or you will probably feel sick.

Edit: and yeah don;t buy a giant one, you will probably be overwhelmed by it before you finish.


Cigars are so relaxing

They have flavored ones, like vanilla? And I thought you just kinda puffed them and let the smoke swirl in your mouth a little, not inhale. Right?

Yep. My favorites are grape strawberry and peach. Grape is really the only one that tastes like the flavor it's named after.

That's terrible. That's like making candy that comes in Cherry, Lemon, Watermelon, Baby, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Feces, and the Feces one is the only one that tastes like its namesake.

I smoke cigars.

But first I unroll the outer, cut the inner, dump the guts, fill it up, reassemble, and call that **** a blunt.

So in other words, my cigar knowledge is limited to vanilla Dutches and peach swishers.

Whats the difference with cigars and cigarettes? And herbal cigarettes?
#22
Ah Jesus, don't listen to these fools.

Peach and grape are actually good cigar flavors.

Don't get a stupid little pussy cigar. If you want one of those, get a damn cigarette.

If you haven't smoked much though, just suck in the smoke and let it float out of your mouth every few hits. Make sure you actually inhale enough to feel it though or else it's pointless.

Oh and if you have them, you HAVE to use matches to light it.

Dont buy flavored ones like some of these guys are saying, unless they are vanillla, honey, or chocolate. Most flavored cigars use terrible tobacco, hence the try to cover up the taste with fake flavoring. Only buy flavored cigars that are from well known companies. For instance i smoke gurkha minis, they come in about 10 flavors from orange spice, cognac, kiwi vanilla, tiramisu, etc. they are all very enjoyable. Havana Honeys are supposed to be excellent flavored cigars as well. CAO has also come out with a new line of flavored cigars, those i highly reccommend. If youre looking for a good starting cigar i would reccommend Acid cigars, all their cigars are very sweet and aromatic. For a beginner i would reccommend the Acid blondie, its a tiny cigar with a very sweet flavor. Make sure you always smoke on a full stomach, if you smoke on an empty stomach youll probably get sick. Buy light to medium bodied cigars as well (a tobacconist can point you in the right direction), full bodieds will make you sick. Here are some more brands i reccomend: CAO, Carlos Torano, Rocky Patel, Acid, Gurkha, Cusano, La Gloria Habana. If you dont like the first cigar you smoke or you get sick dont give up, it just means you didnt find the right cigars. Most of the cigars i mentioned above run between 5-15 dollars a piece so if your looking for some really cheap, flavored cigars, the only ones i reccommend are backwoods honey berry. Hope this helps.

I smoked a cigar earlier today for the first time. I can see the appeal, but honestly I just prefer a plain old cigarette.

I don't really understand what you're trying to say, you still get nicotine from inhaling..

Don't inhale the smoke into your lungs like you would with a cig, just hold it in your mouth for a few seconds.

Prime Times or on of the cheap alternatives (and they come in 20 packs as opposed to 10. Around here anyway) like Bulls Eye. Well, they are *Cigarillos* but they taste good and you can inhale these ones. I`ve been hooked on these for a couple years now... Cheers!

Oh, and Vanilla or Peach are my favorite... some are just too strong flavored and taste like ass I find...like cherry. I would recommend vanilla...nice and smooth.


EDIT: We also have ones called Don Carbones. Pack of 20 = 5 bucks lol. Prime times are like 8-9 for 10 in Canada.

Are cigars healthier than cigs? I heard they were, like there wasnt so much stuff in it. If it's true then in what ways are they more healthier?

a hand made cigar is nothing but tobacco leaves rolled ontop of each other, unlike cigarettes which are the tobacco scraps with hundreds of other chemicals mixed in. so cigars are healthier, but tobacco smoke alone can cause cancer so not exactly the healthiest thing in the world either

the big difference is that cigar smokers don't inhale, but no they aren't really healthier, they do however go great with good bourbon.

those things make an OK blunt wrap, but even there you can do better for the money.


People who smoke artificially flavored cigars are missing the point, not to mention those are always made of terrible quality tobacco.

I literally LMAO when I read this .

Cigars have unprecedented amounts of nicotine, the ****ing wrap is tobacco!

Buy a nice Cigar - Romeo Y Julieta or something. I like a stoagie every now and then, but they can be harsh. I prefer cigarettes.

EDIT: OH, and do NOT inhale cigar smoke. It is too concentrated and potent. You will guaranteed get nauseous, and if it's your first time, you might throw up 10-15 minutes later. Just let it sit in your mouth, then blow it out, and the nicotine will absorb into your bloodstream through your mouth.
