Of course there are many reason as to why do people smoke cigars but we will share a few in the following post. Everyone will have their own reasons for smoking cigars but there are a few similarities that connect us together. Through sharing these common reasons we hope to highlight this lifestyle without limiting it.
Here at Cigar Cigar there is nothing quite like unwinding after a long day with a quality cigar. To roll the smoke around, enjoying the aromas and flavours and exhaling is one of the best ways we like to relax.
Cigars have many misconceptions associated with them, the first and foremost being the health risk. We believe like everything, cigars are good in moderation.
Why Do People Smoke Cigars?
Cigars have been a part of our culture for a very long time. Perhaps it is a family tradition. Or perhaps they are only used for milestones and celebratory purposes.
There is a long winded history with cigars and one can enjoy the craftsmanship and pleasure while smoking.
To a non cigar smoker they will argue that cigars and cigarettes are the same flavour. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Each cigar will offer a unique flavour and experience of its own. One can purchase flavoured cigars of all sizes with each offering a different experience. With the ease of access to the internet you have thousands of flavours, sizes and aromas of cigars to choose from. It couldn’t be easier.
This goes along with traditions. Cigars are still smoked for celebratory occasions, such as at a wedding, the birth of a child, the child transitioning into adulthood, business partnerships, retirements- cigars are linked with many milestones in life. We wholeheartedly agree, what better way to mark a momentous occasion than with a quality cigar. Is it really a celebration if there isn’t a cigar involved?
There is a proud sense of community around cigar smokers. Cigar smokers have been depicted in movies for those of upper class, successful and professional people and it’s actually pretty accurate. We believe the relaxing, stress relieving aspects draw professionals/cigar smokers together. The perfect conversation starter for networking opportunities too.
For many people, smoking cigars has turned into a great hobby. Filling a humidor with quality cigars, purchasing lighters and cutters and setting aside cigars for momentous occasions. Cigar aficionados will agree, smoking cigars is more of a lifestyle than a hobby.
Essentially the time you take to smoke a cigar is the time you have taken out of your day to relax and reflect. Depending on the size of your cigar you may have from 30mins to well over 2hours. Pick up a good book, sit back and relax free from disturbances. People will often have favourite smoking areas which soon become associated with switching off and taking a moment to recuperate.
Cigars hold a certain style and class with them. From the accessories you buy such as your humidor, lighter and cutter to the way you smoke it will speak volumes about you. To hold such a quality, well crafted cigar in ones hand is a great feeling, a sense of pride and respect.
While these are only a few answers to the question why do people smoke cigars everyone will have a different answer. One thing they will agree to is that nothing quite compares to the experience of smoking a cigar.
