    Weight, Cigars, Doctors!

    congrats on the weight loss & improvement of your health!-i had high BP & high cholesterol not long ago, the first things the doc said were to quit smoking (cigs/pipe/cigars) & to drink decaf coffee-told her i'd do some checking & get back to her-decaf is worse than sex w/a condom & no way i was...

    Keeping em lit

    purging : blowing back thru the cigar, w/ or w/o lighting the end 1st-just burns off the tar that builds up as you smoke

    Oliva "Special S" Review

    just had one this last sat-your review is spot on-i felt like it was more med bodied than full though-a good stick, but for the $ there's those i like better

    Coolidor and Temperature Control

    the refreezeable blue ice pks work fine for me-i just wrap them in an old tshirt or towel & put 'em in the cooler, switch 'em out in the AM-never had the RH "dry up" personally-the cooler is sealed, doesn't breathe unlike a humi-there's no place for the humidity to go-if condensation forms on...

    OK I give up on this stupid......

    if your cigars are humidified when you put them in the jar, you shouldn't need any humidification device-the jar should be airtight, not breathe like a normal humi made of wood-if the cigars you put in are from cbid or CI (who notoriously ship wet) then it's no wonder the RH is so high

    ever heard of black pearl

    the black pearl robo is a criollo wrap, med/full, earthy w/a tang to it after 2 yrs rest-they're good fresh too-the standard La Perla Habana is one of the few Indonesian wrapped sticks i like

    CAO Mx2

    most maduros (especially double maduros) have thick wrappers that hold a lot of moisture-combine that w/the higher RH that most shops keep their humi at & it makes for a hard draw-try dryboxing for a few days or store 'em at a lower RH (65% ish) b4 smoking

    Trying to quit dipping and only focus on cigars

    i was a part of this group-had a few "slips" in the beginning, but going strong now-a lot of people substitute something for what they're quitting, for me i used cigars & took up pipe smoking-now i use nasal snuff when i can't smoke, works well for me-people say it's just as addicting, but i can...

    First Nicotine Buzz from a Cigar

    happened to me w/a sancho panza torp when i 1st started smoking cigars-inhaling might have had something to do w/it too-i don't inhale anymore, but haven't found one that'll set me back like that for awhile

    Am I Really Crazy?

    i did when i 1st started (& still smoked cigs)-a sancho panza torp cured me of that

    Ceramic Blade Cigar Cutter?

    seems like it would make a good "at home" cutter where there's carpeted floors (i'm clumsy)

    I feel betrayed, would you?

    i'm a big fan of being honest & up front w/people so i'd sit down & talk w/him when there's not others around-maybe you can come to an agreement w/him, maybe not-never know unless you try
