Why Do People Smoke Cigars?

1. Tradition

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.

2. Taste

Each cigar will offer a unique flavor and experience of its own. One can purchase flavored cigars of all sizes with each offering a different experience.

With the ease of access to the internet, you have thousands of flavors, sizes, and aromas of cigars to choose from. It couldn’t be easier.

3. Celebration

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, graduation, 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?

4. Community

We believe the relaxing, stress-relieving aspects draw professionals/cigar smokers together. The perfect conversation starter for networking opportunities too.

5. Lifestyle

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, cigars are more of a lifestyle than a hobby.

6. Relaxation

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 it will determine how long your cigar will last, you may have from 30 mins to well over 2 hours.

Pick up a good book, sit back and relax free from disturbances. People will often have favorite 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 one’s hand is a great feeling, a sense of pride and respect.

Bottom Line

While these are only a few answers to the question of 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.
