Cigars Are Not All Bad for the Health

Cigar is usually associated with smoking. Smoking is usually associated with health risks.

Light a Cigar in a Couple of Years

Cigars, just like wine will taste better if they are lit after some time. This is not to say that a cigar is not worth it if it is immediately lit by anyone who may have one. It is merely stating a fact that a cigar will improve in its taste and quality after some years of proper storage since this is how the tobacco leave contents prosper with regards to quality tasting cigars. To some people, it would be best to check out the labels that they come with. The years specified in each ...

Personal Satisfaction from Smokes

To this day, no one has really come up with a good explanation why it is hard to kick the habit of smoking once a person would start taking it up. All a person gets is smoke in his mouth and perhaps until his lungs, so what is the pleasure out of it? Breathing like a dragon perhaps? But still, where is the part where a person is satisfied, especially when a cigar is paired with coffee. Many people would not understand why such traditional practices have become what it is today. For ...

Dealing With Smoking Habits

People who start to take smoking as a habit will surely have a hard time to kick it out. The faster it came in may not necessarily be the same way to which it can be avoided.

Dwaine Caraway Follows Baltimore’s Example

It seems that lawmakers all over the United States are out on a mission – a mission to wage war against cigars. In the last post, I wrote about Baltimore banning the sale of single cigars and instead putting a minimum limit of 5 cigars per sale. Going down south, they are trying to push a similar move in Texas. Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway of Dallas, Texas is proposing a similar measure.

No Individual Cigars For Prince George County

When you buy cigars, how many do you buy at a time? I personally buy at least a bundle at a time only because I do not like having to keep going back to the shop when I need or want a cigar. I have to admit that sometimes, though, I buy only one. This is especially true when I am out of the house and I forget to bring a cigar with me. This can also happen when I am short of cash and ...

Flavored Cigars: Yes Or No?

In case you didn’t know, flavored cigars are quite a big thing in many parts of the world. In fact, they attract not only adults but teenagers as well. And why wouldn’t they? If teens are attracted to cigarettes, why wouldn’t they be attracted to cigars as well? This is more understandable if the cigars are flavored. More so, if these cigars are sold as “loosies,” teens are able to buy them more easily. This is the argument that the authorities over at Baltimore ...

Arnie: Movies Shouldn’t Ban Cigars

Now I am not saying that Hollywood or ...
