An evening spent on my deck, by the pond, enjoying either a good single malt, or maybe some Jameson's or even a good 100% Agave Tequila and one of my Honduran, Nicaraguan or even Jamaican cigars is time well spent. My old dog (soon turning 19) also enjoys those times, and seems to enjoy the smell of the cigars as much as I do.
Clipper, TRUE STORY -- (yeah I have a million of 'em), about 1997 or so my old bookie friend used to smoke cigarettes like crazy, nervous guy, and NEVER had a light!
One day I said whoa buddy you've got to cut back on the cigs, try cigars. Maybe one in the morning, maybe afternoon or evening. You soon will learn to relax and slow down a bit....enjoy not inhale pack after pack.
A few weeks later he was thanking me and bitching me out, he was smoking 3 or 4 $10+ Ashtons a day and this was about 15 years ago.
Well find a cheaper smoke for driving (drove a lot
) and save 1 or 2 good ones for those special wind down moments.
It worked, you don't always need an expensive cigar, just a good one at the right time. Enjoy!
