Smoking, no matter how far spread apart, will always be bad for you.

It's fun until you end up smoking them every day. Smoking is sneaky as hell. First it's your friend, then it jumps up behind you, puts you in a chokehold, steals your wallet, and suckerpunches you in the lungs.
#6
Obviously it will harm you in some way, but probably not drastically, depending on how old you are.
Wait.

Cigars aren't bad for you, its only if you take them in, which regularly, people don't do with cigars.

A great take on smoking lol. I remember starting and smoking maybe a pack over two weeks...now I'm 2 packs a day. It's a creepy crawly bastard.

when you consider all of the poisonous foods and air you're constantly ingesting, a cigar every now and then is of little concern.
#11
It won't be good for you, but spread apart it gives your lungs a chance to heal.

EDIT: You don't inhale cigars.

Cigars aren't the same as cigarettes anyway. You're not meant to actually inhale the smoke into your lungs.

Quote by ChucklesMginty
It stops a certain function in your lungs for 2 weeks. Also if you're around friends constantly smoking it's having about the same effect in terms of smoke intake and tar if not more.

If any of that was wrong I'm just quoting what I was taught at school.

Well, you could either believe the "Pit Doctors," or you could do a search on your own and find something like this:

It seems as though 90% of the people in here have no idea what they're talking about (not that I would expect anything more from The Pit).

There are, of course, health risks associated with cigar smoking (namely mouth and throat cancer), however, the likelihood that you will develop a medical problem is low. The tobacco used to manufacture cigars is completely natural and lacks the additives of that used in cigarettes.

Except that cigar smoking poses no risk of physical or psychological dependence. I've been smoking 3-4 times a week for the past three years or so and I can confidently say that I have never craved a cigar.

No, they don't. I've never mat a single cigar smoker who inhales.

Again, cigar smoking doesn't create any type of dependence. I know many cigar smokers who only smoke a few times a month.

lawl at being concerned more over the cigar than the alcohol

the odd cigar is far less harmful than the slightly more frequent drinking.

that being said, i smoke and drink on occasion. everything in moderation.

Nice d00d,
Apparantly people don't get addicted to weed as such, it's more in the tobacco they use to roll joints.
Same with other drugs, tabacco is probably most addictive.
#32
You don't inhale on cigars but puff...not like cigs. You still get all that tar and shit in your mouth but believe me if you only do it maybe once every week you wont notice and it wont be very harmful. You'd be stupid to inhale cigar smoke though.

I've gotta agree with this guy. It won't do anywhere near as much damage as smoking on a regular basis, but the damage is still done regardless of how much it is.

It is true that you inhale more tar when smoking a joint than a cigarette but what they don't tell you is the reason for that being mostly the lack of a proper filter.
