  • I quit smoking...

     11-12-2011, 2:43 AM

    Cigarettes. Been 10 days since I've had one. I quit so I could afford more cigars. You can buy a BOX of NICE cigars once a month for less than a pack-a-day smoking habit costs each month! (and I will remind my wife, who still is smokes, of that everytime I buy cigars. lol)

    I am hoping it has positive side effects on my palate. I am also hoping that with there being MUCH less nicotine in my system (a pack of KOOL 100s a day's worth) that I will be more affected by the strength and body of my cigars. As of now, I get nothing from mild or medium bodied cigars, but I am hoping that without smoking cigs, I will become more sensitive to it, and start to appreciate the body of a cigar more.

    we will see. Wish me luck.

    I started this for that very reason...cigars are more fulfilling than cigs, but...hard habit to break...proud of u...hope to be doing the same very soon after I get my mind set...

    Keep up the good fight brother. I need to quit the snuff. Now that's a nasty habit, but I would imagine your sense of taste will dramatically improve

    Normally I would say nobody likes a quitter, but in this case good job. Enjoy all those new cigars you'll be having.

    My dad smoked cigs for 40 years, and he quit when my 1st son was born. I know you can do it. And cigars will def start tasting better....and food!
