am I the only one that feels the need to spit when smoking? 
I smoke outside at home, so it's not much of an issue, but at a BnM or lounge it's a challenge.

    Not if I have something to drink.
    If I'm out in the yard or on a walk, yes.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    I only feel like spitting out pieces of loose tobacco, tapping before lighting or using a punch helps prevent this. I've learned not to tap Cameroon wrapped cigars, causes the leaf to split.

    I've always been that way while smoking anything.  When I used to smoke cigarettes a long time ago I couldn't stop spitting. 

    Strangely, and I hadn't really thought about it until now, if I'm on the back porch I will spit.  If I'm in the garage I won't.  

    I'll try to be more conscious of it next time and figure out why that is.

    This used to be a constant for me.  Now it's rare.  I'm not sure why.

    I'm a spitter, especially if chewing on a cigar, don't like swallowing tobacco juice.
  • CharlieHeisCharlieHeis South DakotaPosts: 6,796 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I do it constantly. I used to chew so it carried over to cigars as well. Like Silvermouse said, I just don't like swallowing the tobacco spit. I always have a bottle or can nearby to spit in.

    From what I read, I think the root is an unwillingness to swallow tobacco juice.
    it must stem from my fear after getting sick when I tried chew 40 years ago.

    It's a very rare occasion that I don't have some sort of drink when smoking  (including cigs). Something in my head tells me I must have a beverage to sip on, and without it I can't enjoy the smoke.

    Yep, I'm a spitter. Doesn't matter if I'm drinking or not, yes that includes water. Just seems like an excess of saliva builds up when I smoke. See no reason to swallow it.

    Even when walking the dog (without a drink) I don't feel the need to spit, just dry spit loose tobacco. Most cigars dry my mouth out.

    I used to when I first started, not so much anymore...
  • bert873bert873 Jackson, MOPosts: 2,555 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I do. For whatever reason my salivary glands go into over time when having a cigar.

    Yes I do, and often it gets my synusis draining.

    I salivate like crazy smoking a cigar. So I have to spit constantly. But at the pub with a beer I don't spit as much.

    I spit 24-7. I chew tobacco every moment I'm not eating or sleeping and spit constantly. Cigars make me spit in the last couple inches. I can hit a bug on the ground almost every time.

    Nope, not a spitter myself. Cigar or not

    When I first stared smoking cigars seriously I was spitting a ton. Now hardly at all.
