I used to smoke both but in recent years I found that cigars simply taste so much better than cigarettes but millions of cigarette smokers have a million and one reasons why cigars just don’t make it for them. They’ll tell you that for one, the smell of cigars tend to repulse them and that cigarettes smell so much better. If you’ve read this so far you’ll agree that these people somehow just don’t get it. I’ll agree that the smell of an Edmundo or anything from the Monte line is considerably more pungent and identifiable, as a cigar smell, but have these people TASTED a Monte??? Probably not!! I have smoked both for years but lately I’ve been able to kick the cigarette habit quite easily by waiting a bit in the morning before smoking anything and then lighting up a small cigar after breakfast.
I used to be one of those “smoke 8 cigarettes before breakfast” kind of guys and through the years, not only have I spent a lot of $$$$$$ on cigarettes, but once I fell in love with the taste of cigars I felt that there was no turning back. Cigarettes are machine made making them a bit impersonal and cold compared to the handmade works of art that come out of Havana with the Montecristo band wrapped around each one.
