What reaction do you receive the most from people when they find out you are a cigar smoker? We all get the frowns now and then, of course, but usually people have a question or two to ask or start telling me about a relative of theirs who smoke.

Smoking has become so taboo in our society that I think we've all seen and heard negative reactions. Outside of that, I don't get much reaction at all unless I am around another cigar smoker who is interested in what I like to smoke and why.

Of course, I understand that my smoking habit could bother someone, so I try to smoke at places when everyone else is smoking, too. However, when I notice an arrogant attitude towards me, I don't even care about such people.

I don't even notice such people, why should I?

if you just want to think, there's nothing better than taking a good cigar

Well, I tried to talk to them first and explain why smoking a cigar was better than a cigarette but then I understood that the majority didn't care. They just wanted to show their disgust, and my smoking became a good reason for them.

I too am very careful not to smoke where it may offend anyone....UNLESS it's specifically a smoking area.  For example, last night we had drinks outside on a nice terrace with fire pits overlooking the ocean in Laguna Beach, California at the St. Regis.  Smoking was allowed in this area, and they even brought me a very nice, large cigar ash tray. 

Well, there were many other groups of people around, and NOBODY else was smoking.  A couple groups of people (specifically the females in the groups) were very obvious in their disapproving looks, and they went inside.  Nobody actually said a thing, but if they had, my reply would have been that this is the ONLY place I am allowed to smoke a cigar, but non-smokers like they can go anywhere else.  In other words, I can't go anywhere else and smoke, but THEY are totally free to go anywhere else on the property.  Bye-bye.

Good point, Rod

I try to avoid talking about my passion with non-smokers normally, because it's same as discussing good wines with "non-drinkers". When I am asked directly however, I often get curious glances from people. Some start asking how much the difference is between cigar and cigarettes smoking (this is when my long monologue starts usually )
