You ever stop and think to yourself...

Man...I'm spending too much money on cigars! (Of course, this attitude often morphs into, "Aww...F' it! Why the heck not!")

    Only when I look at my stock and think "if I stop buying now I still have a couple year's supply"! But then, yeah, it morphs into f*ck it. Hell, I just bought another box 3 minutes ago!

    Everytime I see your name I think it says 'bighairpoon'. There is a mental block somewhere I am having trouble getting by.

    I saw an episode of one of those TV shows about addicts or whatever recently, and one dude was addicted to shopping, like he got a rush, a high, from shopping... well, I must be a cigar-shopping addict. My diet consists of tap water, Ramen noodles, and Opus X.

    Yep, all the time I look at the humi and think man thats a ton of money in there, but it doesn't take long for those thoughts to be replaced by the urning to by another box. As long as I can pay my bills and keep the family comfy I'm not gunna worry to much about it.

    Nope. I only spend discretionary money on cigars, and during the times of the year when that money is short, I don't buy. It sucks, but it works. If I was a bachelor with no children then it'd be a different story.

    I always say I'm gonna hold off on buying cigars, but then I see a great deal on something I like and just say *** it. It was really bad when they were still doing RP vintage daily deals, been a little easier since no more RP DDs

    I only buy when I'm away at work. That way my little 50 count is full when I get back home then I smoke em up but I try to always keep a couple of everything I get at the bottom so I guess eventually I'll be getting a bigger one soon.

    When I start thinking like that, I start drinking and then those bad thoughts go away..

    This theory works on just about everything.

    I'm in the same boat. At the rate I smoke (just a few a week), I have well over a year's supply on hand. For some reason, that's not good enough.
  • grannejagranneja Posts: 382
    Enough is never enough! Nothing beats looking at the new purchase...except for trying them!

    I just chalk it up to investing in my hobby, if I actually added it up I could probably buy a car, but [email protected] it I am a cigaraholic.
    Alex and Tim make buying to easy.

    And just like that, I jumped on the weekend blitz. I'm so predictable!

    Yeah I just had that moment... like just now. It was a dark and cold place and I pray I never go back.

    I don't think that ever, because that would be admitting defeat...then the terrorists win.

    .. I usually sit on about the same number of cigar. When my humidors get full I stop buying. ( usually).
