    Sounds like a good night to me. I'll assume you're trying to kick a cig habit? You can't beat yourself too bad if you fall off the wagon once or twice along the way. It's a tough habit to break, especially if you're one to live life rather than worry over it.

    Mostly kicked, honestly. I just get to wanting something to smoke when I'm drinking, and it's damned hard to carry around a stogie or pipe all the time against that, y'know?

    I know the scenario for sure. I found myself smoking my wife's marlboro menthol lights on Sat. night during a wedding reception, something I'll pay for tomorrow morning as I'm hacking balls of menthol. The way I see it though, is that the pipes and cigars have made it possible to smoke an occasional cig and not fall off the bus entirely. I no longer fret over it, I adjust to things as they come and adjust accordingly.

    Try a few different kinds of cigarillos until you find one that seems nice enough to you, then you can just carry that little tin and a lighter when you go out :drunk:

    A JM's Dominican Robusto. For less than $2 it's not too bad. Not a whole lot of flavor but the burn/draw is very good. I've probably smoked 40 from the box of 50 I bought a few months ago and all have been the same. I most likely won't buy another box but these have been great at offsetting the cost of the nicer cigars that I've been enjoying.

    Candela Grenadiers, the last of what I bought a few days ago. Tieguanyin on the side after a great workout and a light lunch

    Picked up a pack of the dark Grenadiers, they're not bad. All I've smoked today are two of these. No pipe, no premium cigars yet. But that's about to change. Getting ready to snip the second of the bundle of Fonseca overruns. Churchill heaven, here I come!

    I've found myself gravitating towards smaller ring gauges. I've decided I'm going to purchase mostly Illusione, Tatuaje, and Fuente from now on and focus more on Cubans.

    I had Oral surgery today so no cigars for me

    I've grown pretty fond of narrower cigars myself, but a larger cigar every now and then is nice. I finally lit up the Fonseca, and I'm enjoying it greatly.

    I have no understanding of how it is people enjoy 60+ ring gauge cigars. That just seems unpleasant. 40-48 is kind of ideal as far as I'm concerned.
