Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to communicate to your spouse the importance of the difference between premium tobacco and cigarettes in regards to health; also what cigar or pipe smoking means to you.
People enjoy cigars. That’s my selling point.
I just wait for her to buy shoes.
I know, You're a big dog and I'm on the list.Let's eat, GrandMa. / Let's eat GrandMa. -- Punctuation saves lives
It'll be fine once the swelling goes down.
Throw chocolate and don't make any sudden moves or they attack.
Good luck. If they don't get it, they probably never will.
My wife knows that a cigar is my 1 hour vacation from everything.
I may be doing something when I smoke my cigar, but I rarely answer the phone.
The difference is, cigars are 100% tobacco without all the garbage they put in cigarettes. Put down a cigarette, it keeps burning. Put down a cigar, it will go out.
Sounds like she voted for Biden. Lost cause if you ask me. Divorce now
Just throw a good lay into her. That'll shut her up....you're clearly not laying pipe like a pro....
Cigarettes are bad for you, cigars are good for you.
Well honey, it's either this or hookers and cocaine....
These questions have been answered many times, in many ways throughout the history of this forum.
Brief recap: Don't inhale cigars or pipe smoke, nicotine absorbs slowly as a result. This means no 8 second nicotine rush to the brain, which is the aspect that makes nicotine so addicting.
No rush = no addiction.
The cigar or pipe smoker can go all day without tobacco, or smoke 2 or 3 times in a day, with no near-homicidal rage if the tobacco is withdrawn. Take away the cigarettes, or even worse the vapes, and that nicotine addict becomes irritable and angry in a matter of minutes, hour or so at best.
There's LOTS more to learn, find the search button, or just read at will.
If she wants to know the difference, nicely explain and say “well honey it’s like you having or not having a credit card” She’ll quickly understand.
Awesome! I have 1-2 cigars per day, 1 or 2 times per day. I'm in...
Frank, that's 1-2, not 12.
It’s an easy explanation, you’re insurance premiums are higher if you smoke cigarets. You are a non smoker to the insurance company if you only smoke cigars. For life insurance you still have to pass a nicotine test.
Cigars, you don't inhale and are smoked for pure pleasure and flavor with nicotine being a nice enhancing affect. Cigarettes, you smoke compulsively for a nicotine fix. Much like premium food (lobster, caviar, oysters, steak etc) enjoyed for flavor vs cheap junk food for the sake of eating. Or a single malt you enjoy for flavor vs some cheap swill you mix with soda to get wasted. Journey vs result if you will.
