Cuban cigar the way it is meant to be lit

You may think that lighting a Cuban cigar could be as easy as it sounds, but you would be thinking wrong. It is true that anybody can light a Cuban cigar, but to light it in a way that preserves its flavor is a tricky business and may require knowing a thing or two about the process. Smokers who enjoy every Cuban cigar that they smoke should follow these tips to better enjoy their experience.

Before you light your Cuban cigar, you should heat its “foot” or end for sometimes. As you keep heating it slowly on a fire, you will see that a black ring is forming on the foot. You must make sure that the Cuban cigar does not contact the fire at any point of time; the fire should just be close enough to warm the Cuban cigar until the black ring formation on the end is complete.

Wooden matches should be used to light a Cuban cigar and cedar matches are ideal for lighting the Cuban cigar as they do not meddle with the aroma when you use them. Although cedar matches would be perfect, you can also use a lighter if you must, to light your smoke. If you must use a lighter, make sure that it is butane lighter at least, because butane lighters do not leave any strong smell when you light your Cuban cigar with it. This makes sure that you do not lose out on the unadulterated flavor of the Cuban cigar.

 

Cigar Cutters

Cigar Cutters

The cigar smoking culture has been embedded in the American culture for over hundreds of years. If smoking a cigar is such an important event, then the accessories that help achieve it should be held with the same reverence. Cigar smoking accessories are important in the cigar smoking experience as they can affect the quality of the cigars and, as an aftereffect, the flavor and aroma of each cigar. One of the most important cigar accessories that one should always have is the cigar cutter.

A cigar cutter provides you a good, clean and smooth cigar cap each and every time; this is important because, if your cigar cut is not clean nor is it neat, then the flavor and the aroma of your cigar will be affected and your experience will be ruined. Not properly cutting a cigar with a quality cigar cutter and having a bad experience can have you missing out on one of the best and most relaxing hobbies in life.

Cigar cutters are available on the internet and local cigar shops. Cigar cutters are available in different designs and colors and, in some cases, they can be also be personalized to fit you. There are also cigar cutters that are multifunctional; some of them are key-chains and some of them come with cigar lighters too. There is a huge selection of brands and types of cigar cutters which can have the novice cigar smoker a bit confused as to which one to pick.

Whatever kind of cigar cutter you end up buying, what is important is that they perform well. Your cigar cutter needs to be able to cleanly cut your cigars. There are three types of cuts these different kinds of cigar cutters provide. They are the V Cut, the Hole Punch and the Straight Cut. This is where your personal choice lies, as the kind of cigar cutter you choose will depend on the kind of cut you want to have on your cigars. Keep in mind that the most common kind of cigar cutter available is the straight cutter.

Straight cuts come from guillotines which can have either a single or double blades. The double bladed guillotines are much more efficient as they provide cleaner and smoother cuts on the cigar. These are also the most convenient to carry around and it is also the cheapest kind of cigar cutters.

Tobacco Chemicals

Tobacco Chemicals

As you know, smoking tobacco is one of the worst things you can do to your body. Did you know that 1 tobacco cigarette has over 4,000 different types of chemicals? Maybe that is the reason why there is a rumor that says every time you smoke a cigarette you lose 7 years of your life, who knows? The electronic cigarette is smoke free and helps cure your nicotine cravings without having to inhale all the carcinogens, tar and carbon monoxide.

Then there are the electronic cigarette cost-saving benefits too. Since the packs of tobacco cigarettes taxes have been on the rise you do now paying from $5.00 to $6.00 and sometimes more per pack of cigarettes. Cartons of cigarettes cost in the range of $40.00 to $50.00.

But a pack of electronic cigarette cartridges/refills come in packs of 5 and last as long as a carton of regular cigarettes do.  You can choose nicotine levels from high, medium, low, and NO nicotine for your cartridges.  And a pack of cartridges/refills only cost about $12-15 for the pack of five.

Basically, switching to electronic cigarettes can save you over 50% of what you currently spend on tobacco cigarettes.

There are many more benefits to ecigarettes than we can discus within the scope of this article.  But if you are a smoker and want a less stressful, far more successful way to quit smoking, you may want to get yourself an electronic cigarette and give it a go.  Ecigarette starter kits are quite affordable – starting at around $40 up to around $150 for a kit for two people.

Electronic cigarette use sweeps the US

Electronic cigarette use sweeps the US

Hardly ever does a product came along that has caused such a stir of excitement especially among tobacco smokers. Even among non smokers there has been a lot of interest in the product because so many of them are married to smokers or have other loved ones that smoke. They are just as excited about a product that could take away some of the more deadly aspects of smoking simply by switching to inhaling a solution that is not lit with fire and has no tobacco.

Most people realize by now that the device is a nicotine delivery device and it does not cure a nicotine addiction or the habit of inhaling something, but it does offer a cleaner and better way of doing it.

Even though the FDA is dragging its feet on publishing it’s own findings on this nicotine delivery device, many smokers already believe that electronic cigarettes should be approved and the sooner the better.

They love the fact that it does not have to be burned and that no carcinogenic smoke or tar is produced to annoy themselves or others. They like the fact that it is odorless and does not leave a lingering stinky smell or residue like burning tobacco. They love the fact that there are not four thousand chemicals involved in producing the nicotine solution that is used in the device.

Electronic Cigarette That Fits Your Style

Electronic Cigarette That Fits Your Style

If you are not a flashy person in any way, then the electric cigarette that you choose to buy will most likely be the one that most resembles a traditional cigarette. It will have a white body with perhaps a brown or white filter portion that will not attract very much attention at all unless of course you are using it somewhere smoking is prohibited and then you might likely have to explain that you are vaping and not really smoking.

If you are a little more flashy sort of person, then you might be tempted to purchase a sleek black electric cigarette that sports a greater look of sophistication and style. This type of e cigarette will certainly make you more noticeable at parties or other places. These e cigarettes have the more elegant look of something that might have been seen in the twenties or thirties when smoking was all the rage and smokers used those long cigarette holders and fancy holding cases. Fancy storage cases are available for electric cigarettes as well and are the perfect accessory to complete you spiffy electric cigarette.

Then you have an electric cigarette that comes in a pen style. This is for the more discreet users that do not wish to display their electric cigarette use at all. It can be carried in your pocket and look completely innocent or it can be kept in a neat little case on your desk at your home or office and no one would ever know what it is. These days there is a terrible stigma attached to smoking and the electric cigarette might not yet be accepted by some people. So, if you are worried about having a reputation that could be misconstrued as being a smoker, then the pen style might be just the device for you.

The Safe Cig

The Safe Cig

The Safe Cig is my favorite up-and-coming electronic cigarette brand, so I figured I would write a full The Safe Cig review. They have an innovative and creative style that makes their product a lot of fun to use. They recently released their Safe Cig Micro electronic cigarette and it is unlike any e-cig I’ve ever seen. See the video below for an idea of what I’m talking about.

This thing is awesome! The pack looks like a more colorful tobacco cigarette pack and it holds the e-cigarette battery along with multiple flavor cartridges. The fact that you can carry around a few batteries and a bunch of flavor cartridges makes it extremely convenient. But the fact that this pack charges your battery on-the-go makes it the MOST convenient e-cigarette on the market. Not only that, but the bottom of the kit opens up from the side to reveal a USB charger! You can charge anywhere on the go with a charger that fits right into the carrying case. This Safe Cig Micro Electronic Cigarette kits are purely awesome and I recommend them to any person interested in e-cigarettes.

My senses returned

My senses returned

I do know for a fact that my lungs and breathing, which was always labored and congested, cleared up completely. My sense of smell returned. I’m not getting sick with respiratory and sinus infections any more. Most importantly, I feel that my death sentence has been lifted from me. In my opinion, and my opinion alone, I feel that I’m in nowhere near the danger of developing a fatal condition as I was when I was smoking cigarettes. And I never planned on any of this. Thirty-Seven years smoking up to 2 packs of cigarettes a day. How dare you keep spewing out the same tired, one-sided, narrow-minded, biased, poorly researched and extremely limited point of view articles such as this.

There are literally tens of millions of people just like myself that would gladly give up cigarettes for an acceptable alternative. Instead of trying to take an open minded view towards a technology that has the potential to save millions upon millions of lives, the goverment, the FDA and antismoking crusaders have all banded together in an attempt to outlaw electronic cigarettes. And what will be offered to help smokers reduce the harm caused by their tobacco habits? Well, tobacco of course! The FDA has no plans to stop the sale of regular tobacco cigarettes, which are highly taxed and very profitable to the

The FDA has no plans to stop the sale of regular tobacco cigarettes, which are highly taxed and very profitable to the goverment, tobacco and pharmaceutical industries . Tobacco companies will package and sell their product, the goverment will allow it while putting their official stamp of approval on every pack of cigarettes sold and the pharmaceutical companies will continue to churn out very expensive, low succes rate ‘smoking cessation’ products. It’s the gravy train don’t you know? It has been quite an education in POLITICS for me this past 6 months as I have learned, from actual in depth research and study, about the many different aspects of this issue.
