    Hey guys, sorry I haven't been on in the last few weeks, I've had a LOT going on (Finals being one of them haha) so no I didn't abandon everyone haha. I hope to be around more.

    How's everyone been doing?

    I was wondering, I recently smoked a rather large cigar, and I got pretty nauseated afterwards. Is this normal for tobacco in general?

    Glad to see ya made it through finals, it's always a rough time.
    As far as the cigar goes, is it normal? well maybe.. it depends on the cigar I bet.
    The same thing happened to me. That's why I stopped smoking them 20 yrs ago. However; I've tried a couple since then and I didn't have that feeling.
    I would like to start smoking them on a more regular basis. I just have to figure them out

    nauseated... sounds like Nicotine overload.
    Yep it can happen, and did for me my first time smoking a big cigar.
    I'd only been smoking a couple weeks, and attempted to tackle an Acid Kuba Kuba.
    I was at the local smoke shop, sitting on the couch, having a good smoke and conversation, everything was fine.:bing:
    Then I got up to go home:eek:
    Body temp started to rise, sweat started pouring, and nausea started showing its ugly face.
    I staggered out to the car, thinking "I'll be ok, I got this".:thu2:
    Managed to drive home and pull into the driveway, but could go no further.:beyes:
    It was winter, and snowing, and there I was sitting in the car with all the windows down and the seat reclined.
    After a couple hours I was able to get myself together enough to crawl into the house.:shead:

    Lesson learned:th1:

    Or Not!:eek:
    Second time I had it happen I tried to smoke a whole Backwoods cigar like a cigarette.
    I inhaled the whole time I smoked it.:shead:
    Bad part was that I was at work and had to deal with patrons while the nicotine beat me up.:(
    Lesson really learned:th1:

    When I started back smoking a pipe, I didn't understand how the nicotine transfer worked.
    I had smoked a bowl full of bacci, and followed it up with a cigarette or two.:eek:
    Once again, while at work:shead:

    Third time was the charm, I really did learn after that.:thu2:

    Nicotine overload it is. New years eve last year I smoked two fairly large cigars back to back. Thought I was fine but it hit me during the drive home. It's happened a couple of times when I was experimenting with twist tobaccos. I can normally feel it coming on now, so I know when to stop!

    Nic overdose! Some cigars like an Ashton are mild and I never get a buzz. Then there are those LaFlor Dominicana or Oliva Series V.
    Knock my socks off!
    Sometimes I need that though, like after a big meal.

    We used to call that the "Cohiba Jeebas", when someone would smoke their first cuban. The last stage, which you were fortunate to avoid, is the presentation of the "Cuban Salad"...,

    Stay away from the bolder nicaraguan blends until you have your nicotine legs under you. You can't go wrong with milder, quality dominican blends like AVO, Ashton, and Macanudo. I always recommend the Mac Hyde Park for a superb low-nic smoke. Of course, none of these brands are cheap, which is why I've moved on to pipes.

    Welcome back, I was wondering where you went (really, I checked to see if you had logged in recently) Try smoking that cigar slower... it helped me when I started with em. I reccomend a cheaper cigar that I like, called ¨marsh wheeling old time stogies¨ they are only the size of a pencil, so there is less nicotine to deal with while still getting a great flavor (snork that sucker, you wont regret it!)

    Welcome back to me a second time!

    Anyway, the cigar I bought was a crappy $2 one at BevMo (all I could afford at the time) and it didn't get good until after it was 3/4 gone. Lesson learned though. I coupled it with some Johnnie Walker Gold Label scotch, and it was divine.
