newbie smoker

so im on an insane budget right now bcuz living in LA is more expensive than like anything else and im extremly intrested in cigars. i just started out. i have a humidor and a few cigars. i was curious if anybody had some extra cigars that they would be willing to give away or sell for very cheap i dnt care wat kind they are im trying a little bit of everything. im into mild-medium cigars right now but i would be most appreciative of anything. so please let me know. in the future i hope to return this favor or trade with you when i have a decent inventory.

 

.

thank you for all your help,

Dan

    Hey Dan, welcome aboard. If you send me a pm with your mailing info, I'm sure I can put together a decent little sampler for you. When you get a bit more of a foothold in the hobby and build up an inventory, you can repay the favor. How's that sound?

  • Damn, this guy practically stole my name. I guess I should've chosen something a little more unique then. Well, I guess I'll let you keep it for a while. lol

    O Brother Where Art Thou? One of the characters, Big Dan, is a Bible wholesaler/thief. John Goodman. Classic.

    Damn, how could I miss that. Good soundtrack, too. Definitely my second favorite John Goodman role after...Walter.

  • Big Dan...send me your info as well. I'll shoot some sticks your way. Maybe after you strike it rich, you can send me a box of GOF! Just kidding, I'd be glad to help you out a little.

    You know... This thread just serves to remind me of what a fantastic bunch of guys you've got around here... A brand new user who has no history asks the very day he joins up if anyone would be kind enough to send him a few sticks...

    Not only does he get a response and have several people offer to help him out, but what stands out even more.... You didn't suddenly get a bunch of other people jumping in here with, "Hey, send me some too" or, "Hey, I'm new too, can I get some", etc..etc..etc.. When I first saw this post and the responses, I thought for sure a barrage of posts were to follow all asking the same...

    I just really think it goes to show how great the crowd on here really is... I'm about as impressed as it gets...

    Second that.

    I didn't read Big Dan's original post closely enough. I just glanced at it and thought it was another request for recommendations. I was a bit surprised -- but not terribly so -- when people started volunteering to just send him stuff. Now that I read his post, I get it.

    Nice, guys. Very nice.

    slightly confused at wat ur getting at?
  • urbinourbino Posts: 4,517
    I'm not sure what you're unclear on.

    I was just saying I didn't read your post close enough to realize you had asked if anybody had extras they'd be willing to get rid of. We get a lot of requests from newbies for recommendations, and I thought that was all your post was. So I was surprised when people started volunteering -- seemingly for no reason -- to just send you stuff. When Shirley posted his comment, I went back and actually read your original post and realized what was going on.

    That clear it up?

    ooh alrigh well i figured that since the cigar community is one in which u share and trade and people seem to have so many cigars that they would be willing to help me get started. i will be returning this favor in the future to these people meaning that they will recieve cigars back once i get a steady collection going
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    Well Dan, speaking for myself here, I'd much rather you simply enjoy the cigars I sent you and learn a thing or two about what you like in a cigar than have you return the favor. As I said already, I'm more than happy to give what help I can to a newbie because I know what it is like to be in those shoes... hell I'm still a newbie to cigar smoking, just not to this particular forum.

    thank u i appreciate it a lot and ya its hektik and there is so many different types and such its overwhelming i also noticed that there r a lot of knock offs for example look at the new thread i started
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    The best advice I can give about that is to not even worry about all the brands out there. Find a few that you really like and branch out from there. Once you figure out what kind of flavor and strength profiles you like in a cigar, it will be much easier to make a good guess on a new cigar to try.
  • Dan, did you see my post? If your still interested in some sticks... send me your address!
