Cigars

So I have always enjoyed smoking cigars when I golf. Profile pic, duh. Coming from Tampa, FL, (Ybor City) we had some pretty nice options. 

Recently I put a TV on my patio and am purchasing some outdoor furniture. I thought, "man, I would love to enjoy a cigar on my home patio while watching golf at night" So I built a small coolidor and it didn't turn out how I'd like, but we will see when my humidification devices arrive. If that doesn't work out I can always spend a little extra and get an actual Spanish cedar humidor. I've read of several guys saying they outgrow their humidor very fast, but I'm not a collector. Not sure how those guys can sit on thousands of dollars of cigars and not smoke them. 

My wife isnt really thrilled. I understand the risks, but its something I enjoy every once in a while.

Man, I miss smoking cigars. Arturo Fuente Short Stories were my favorite. Speaking of Ybor City, isn't there a Fuente distributor down there?

Anyway, I took up pipe smoking a few years ago and cut back on the cigars. I used to love to light one up once or twice a week.

I haven't smoked anything since June, but there are days when it's tough not to say "#$@ it" and go buy a pouch of pipe tobacco or a good cigar.

I hope the coolidor works out for you.

Never smoked, and I don't plan to really. I know a few guys who will light up a cigar on the golf course. My Uncle will just chew on one a bit while he plays golf.

No indoor smoking in Ohio anymore, so it's going to have to get warm out before I enjoy my next cigar.

Cigar collecting (and thus outgrowing humidors) is for people a heck of a lot richer (or at least less frugal) than I am. One of the biggest tobacconists in the state is a mile away from work, but when I buy its one or two at a time.

I'm a big fan of cigars, but can only handle them every so often. For me, a perfect cigar night involves a few of my college buddies sitting around a fire pit with some cigars and a good scotch. Scotch, cigars and good conversation go really well together, lol.

I'll occasionally smoke one with my dad on the golf course once every few months. But beyond that, I leave them be. The price you have to pay (that foul taste that can linger in your mouth the next day) is just too great for me to justify making a habit out of it.

It is true that it becomes easy to outgrow your first humidor. My advice is to buy at least a 150 count humidor that is built solidly. Cigar smoking does not have to be an expensive hobby if you know how to do it and where to buy quality cigars. Let me know and we can duscuss sometime and maybe even share a few smokes as i am also in Tampa

Ill be in town in March for a week long golf trip. Coolidor is holding steady at 70% RH and 71* in the house, so I'm happy. First batch of sticks comes in this week. I think I can fit about 100 in the coolidor, but I don't see myself buying much more than that. Had two on the course yesterday and it was great.
