I am female, 34, single and have been smoking for about 15 years. I am in the closet because of my job as a Physicianís Assistant. I smoke Kent 100s FF, but if the store doesnít have them, I get VS FF or Marlboro. I donít care for menthols. I smoke about 10 a day on workdays, 15 otherwise.
To cut down on cigarettes, I have been considering taking up cigars. Iíll still smoke cigarettes until I get home from work, and then go with cigars. I live in a detached home, so thereís no worry about smoke drifting to other units. I remember my father smoking White Owl Panatelas. Iíve never tried a cigar, but I liked the aroma. I asked at a store where I buy cigarettes, and the person looked like he never heard of them. I have looked behind the counter. The main thing I see is Blunts, which doesnít sound too appealing. There are also flavored cigars, which I donít think Iíd like,
I have some questions.
Are there many women who smoke cigars, either openly or secretly?
Does anyone have a recommendation on what brand to start on?
I know that it takes about 30 Ė 45 minutes to smoke a cigar, and you donít inhale. Is there anything else I should know about the difference between cigarette and cigar smoking?
