What were some mistakes you made in regard to smoking when you first began?

I wasn't able to get any flavor from cigars for a while when I began because I'd draw the smoke into my cheeks and look like a pufferfish every time I smoked. It wasn't until recently that I learned how to properly smoke a cigar to get the full flavors from them.

    Smoked any & every kind of cigar, usually way too fast.

    Not knowing the difference between Cuban brands and General Cigars non-cuban ripoffs using the same name. Cohiba, H. Upmann, and Montecristo would be some examples.

    Purchased a humidor and wiped it with distilled water 
    Then I found this place and discovered Boveda. Ten I learned about Tupperdors and have several.

    I bought a box of Lone Wolf cigars when they came out.
    In Fumo Pax
    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    First cigar? Inhaling. Treating it like a cigarette, wondering how anyone enjoys turning green. Had to watch a youtube video to figure it out. Had only smoked cigarettes and hookah before starting cigars.

    only moldy cigars I've ever bought were from that etailer whose name begins with 
    'T'. And getting them to stop sending me great deal emails was difficult.

    I think watching the "what am I smoking..." Threads would really eliminate buying a lot of crap and never smoke.
