Do you use tobacco in any form? Cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chew, snus, etc.

If you do, how often? I generally smoke 5 or 6 cigars a week. I also will have one cigarette a day w/ my classmates while on break.

You?

Padron, Rocky Patel, whatever Cubans I can get my hand on, Romeo Y Julieta, Ashton. Generally $7+.
Everyday smoke is more like a Padron 3000, RP Connecticut, Oliva Serie V. Saturday or "nice" smokes would be more along the lines of Ashton Prime Minister, Padron Anniversary Maduro, etc.

Since a local, draconian law drove my Scotch and stogie bar out of business, I don't think I've had a cigar in about 18 months. We'd do the cigar bar about monthly on a Friday afternoon. I'd always go for an Ashton, Churchill gauge. I'm not a big smoker, so like a mellow taste and cool burn.

Smokings laws are getting freakin nuts. Luckily in Illinois, the law is that you can smoke in a cigar store. Or at least, I've never been stopped from doing it.

I used to chew during high school summers working on the farm. Just seemed like the thing to do. I haven't had a dip in 4 years though.

Cigar on average of once a month. My humidor lasting me years at this rate, but ah well. I just don't have the urge or social incentives to smoke more often. Thus, a cigar ends up being a time I really unwind, when I can fit into these otherwise dull moments.

No other point in doing it for me other than for personal reasons.

I have some chew or snus once every couple months. I like the extra buzz it gives me after I've had a beer or two.

Back when I used to live with crazy druggie roommates, I would smoke the odd parliament with them - recessed filter came in handy and all that.

Now it's just the occasional cigar or trip to the hookah bar (once a month or less), but my low-level asthma keeps me from indulging too frequently. Kyle: What's a good really mild cigar for someone with weak lungs like me?

PM sent. Here are some recs--- but b/c I'm such a good man, I'd recommend thinking long and hard before I got into a hobby addictive and bad for you if you've already got weak lungs.

Anyway, to the good stuff:
Montecristo White
Ashton Classic
Romeo Y Julieta Reserva Real
Perdomo Cabinet Reserve Champagne
Perdomo Lot 23
Rocky Patel Connecticut

Cigarettes in 9th and 10th grade. Also dip in 12th grade (yuck!)

Smoked a pipe from time to time in college (maybe that's why I like iammatt).

I don't like cigars but have smoked those too in the past.

Smoke nothing now.

I have a remarkably unaddictive personality. I can smoke several cigarettes a day and refrain from doing so for several months and so on. I'm not one of those who smokes one cigarette and then dies from lung cancer at age 50.

That said, I should probably try hard drugs now.
