Just kind of wondering how long you guys have been smoking and do you have any health issues because of smoking cigars?

    Off and on before that but got into it more frequently and really got hooked about five years ago. 

    Cough cough, snort, spit, hack, spit. COUGH! No health problems. Cough! 

    Not really.

    I started when i was 19 having a stick every now and then. That continued for 18 years never smoking more than 5 a year. December 2014 is when it became more of a hobby and obsession.

    Been smoking cigars on and off since 1979.
    It started as a weekend thing while we built hot rods.
    In the mid 90s, when the cigar boom hit, along with the internet, I discovered a ton of new brands. Some good, a lot not so good.

    As for health issues from cigars. 
    No and I don't entertain arguments of such things.

    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    6-12 a year for 7 or so years. Then 2011 I joined up Ccom and started smoking heavily and most cases 1-4/day off and on. Only health issue I notice is that it costs me $500 a year extra for insurance and after smoking 3+ in one day the next day a have a bit of a cough and hack in the mornings but basically nill.

    I started back in August of 2010 when I turned 40. I average 1 a week and I have not seen any issues. My doctor said it was okay to do that so I'm fine with it.

    This is interesting, my insurance company told me that after I was one year free of inhaling tobacco products I am considered a nonsmoker.  Smoking cigars made my insurance cost go down.  I have never had any health issues due to any tobacco products to date.  I smoke an average of at least one cigar a day.

    In the past 3 years only 2-4 cigars a year when playing golf and whatever the course had. I just loved the way a cigar smelled.  But because I had know idea what I was doing, I don't count those years.  The summer of 2015 I really started to get into it and do my research. The deeper I dug the more I was fascinated with the whole process and I wanted more. The wife wasn't so good with it at first. Never thought I would have my own humidor. But, she is more relaxed with it now and for Father's Day and my birthday she and my son bought be a 130 count humidor. It's really nice.  Still learning and still loving it. But I just have to talk her into to getting those BBF Cubans. 

    Funny thing. In the beginning I didn't have a cutter, so I would ram a golf tee into the head to open a passage. Man I was green. Lol

    Very imaginative. I've been known to use my teeth back in those circumstances.

    45 years.  Started to have cough, wheeze, hack up brown stuff a few years back, so I quit cigarettes.  No more problems.  Average 1 - 2 pipes and 2 cigars a day.

    Almost 1.5 months......before that maybe 5 in 20 years. I'm noticing the hit to my wallet but really nothing else.

    Been smoking cigars for 8 years and the only effect it's had on my health is bad breath. I've probably averaged 1 a week over that time.

    4-5 smokes a year (I was that guy mooching at events) for years. Took it up as a hobby in 2014 after a trip to Germany smoking Cubans every night for a week. Nowadays I average 5-6 a week. Today was a double whammy!  Yes!!!  (And now I'm that guy dry begging for as much as I can get here) ;)

    Anybody ever try.......
