How do you fight the urge?

Has there ever been a box of cigars you want (or several) and you know you shouldn't buy them, but you're seriously considering doing it? How do you fight that urge to buy the cigars?

    I'm thinking of buying them... 50th anniversary vintage 1984, 1988, 1992, 1997, 2000 macanudos and they come in a SWEET humidor!

    1.  Almost every deal, no matter how good, will always come around again.
    1a.  Depends on the reason why you shouldn't buy.

    2.  What's wrong with the cigars you already have?
    2a.  Smoke what you have.
    2c.  If you don't want to smoke what you have, give them to CFW or bomb them out.

    3.  Macanudos suck.  (just kidding) (kinda, kinda not)

    So why do you feel you shouldn't buy what you want?

    I've got about 20 cigars... I'm trying to accumulate... There is nothing wrong with them, but I like some variety rather than smoking the same thing every day.

    Why I feel I shouldn't buy them is because I only get paid once a month. It'd mess up the budget, and my fiance would probably kill me for spending money on cigars.. she thinks it's stupid to spend $10+ on cigars

    Usually I am a little more budget conscience  but I do remember buying a @Bigshizza sampler while unemployed and not sure how the electric bill was going to be paid. 
    A little dirt never hurt

    Just do it. They can't kill your electricity in the winter if you miss a payment.

    Thanks, Peter. I just used your system to avoid saving 50% on a box of Camacho Barrel Aged, never had one but the reviews were good, but never had one, but the price was good....

    If you don't have any extra money......Stop looking for deals and cigars in general.
    If you do have the extra money.....Look for the deals, buy what you want and enjoy.

    I like to torture myself by loading up the cart, stare at the total, then log off the site without checking out.

    I've been doing good, I've only bought 10 sticks in the last two months.

    I don't either, I buy until Colleen makes me sell stuff and then I buy more.

    Get a second job.

    I honestly don't have time for a second job. My work hours are very sporadic, and many weeks I work 15-16 hours a day.

    Oh boy... She's really going to hate it when I tell her my plans to build a walk-in humidor when we get a house.

    You and Ricky should compare notes, have you seen his cigar lounge?
    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.
