Cigar sick

HestonCVHestonCV Posts: 5
Ive been smoking cigars every 3-4 days for about 2 months now. Every now and then I will feel sick and mildly queezy after a large cigar. Is there anyway to prevent this, and how often would I have to smoke to become addicted?

    What Charlie said about eating a nice meal before smoking a powerhouse. Myself I will blow through triple ligero for breakfast. That's just me though.

    BTW what are you smoking? 
    Last night I smoked an Oliva serie V torpedo. That’s one of the ones that made me pretty sick

    I agree with the first two, be sure to smoke full bodied cigars on a full stomach. As far as becoming addicted, I have been smoking cigars for almost 25 years. Sometimes upto 20 in one week and there have been times where I went two weeks without a cigar. I’ve never felt a physical addiction. Nor have I ever met someone with a physical addiction. However there is a psychological condition called CAS. Stick around here for a while and you’ll discover what it is.
    I tell my students that cigars are not an addiction, they are a hobby, an addicting hobby!

    This will pass as you build a tolerance to the nicotine. Sugar will counter act the sickness. Either sugar packs or a sugary soda

    But sugar is deadly, which 'they' all agree on nowadays.  So, cigars are a gateway drug to the hard stuff?
    😂 it is truly a sickness

    My advice is more specific than "full meal before cigar", I say "carbs before cigar". Pasta, bread, potatos, I'm no scientist but, carbohydrates get broken down into sugars as you digest them. Sugar has often been mentioned as a quick cure after you get cigar-sickness, but if you're body is already producing sugars, you can probably avoid the sickness altogether.

    That "sick feeling" you are speaking of is more of a nicotine rush.  Some cigars contain more nicotine than others and this response is your body letting you know.  Some people can tolerate stronger cigars better than others.  Usually a nice meal before a strong cigar will help with the sick feeling
