Any cigar smokers here?
So I've quit smoking cigarettes for a good couple of years now, which left a big empty hole in my daily life that I've been trying to fill, and believe I may have found it. I'm not sure if I am better or worse off switching to cigars, but it is definitely, so far, much more fulfilling and enjoyable. Also, the smell is a lot less offensive during, and after the task (of smoking a cigar) has been completed.
So I've only been smoking the cheapest cigars I can find, and have learned to only buy them if they are stored in a temperature/humidity controlled room, otherwise it would be a complete waste of money because you do not know how long the cigar has been sitting there drying out. Also thanks to the internets, I believe I have learned most of the basics (do's and don'ts), and have since ceased to smoke, light, and store them like cigarettes, as that has never worked out for me with cigars.
So since I am still new to this game, I figured I should continue to smoke the cheap $1-$2 type until I have more or less "mastered" the art of cigaring, or would I be wasting both money and time doing so (like trying to drink cheap wine)?
I have so far gone through about half a dozen cigars over the past couple months, so it is not a frequent, or even daily thing I am doing, just occasionally something to enjoy after a hard day's work or on a nice and slow weekend. (Used to go through about half a pack of cigarettes a day in comparison.)
Thinking about buying a small cigar "humidor" and filling it with cheap cigars for my next move.
