There are just about as many reasons to give up smoking cigars or using dab rigs under $100 as there are that you shouldn’t have started that offensive, smelly addiction in the first place. However, there are reasons for and ways you can give up smoking cigars.
- Consider the rights of others, including your family, to breathe fresh air. Cigarettes are annoying enough for people who must be exposed to the smell and smoke in confined spaces. Cigars, with their more intense odors, can be more bothersome. After dinner at home, forget the old habit of sitting back with a nice cigar. For other people, there’s nothing nice about it.
- Consider how your cigar smoking affects members of your family, especially small children. Second-hand smoke can be just as dangerous to those who must be exposed to it daily as it is for smokers.
- If you decide to give up cigars, but feel the habit has become addictive, cut back gradually. Check with your family doctor about cutting back gradually, possibly with some type of helpful medication. At the same time, you may ask for advice on the long-term damages cigar smoking can affect your health.
- Sign up at a no-smoking clinic, where you can participate in therapy sessions with others with cigar smoking addictions. The old saying that misery loves a company may help you realize you’re not alone with the problem.
- While you’re attempting to quit, try substitutes for the comfort you had holding the cigar in your mouth. There are sugarless gum and mints. They’ll also cut back on the offensive cigar breath you want to eliminate.
- Don’t believe that using other types of tobacco can be substituted. Cigarettes, snuff, and chewing tobacco are just as addictive and hazardous to your health.
- You don’t need your cigar smoking is an ego enhancer, such as in the old days when men retired to the living room for cigars and brandy. Find another way to do the bragging with the guys with poker and computer games.
- When you give up cigars, you’ll realize an unexpected benefit. You’ll be able to use the money for other pleasures. According to www.smokemag.com, the typical purchase price is from $5 to $8 per cigar. At giving up just one a day, you can save from $1,900 to $2,900 a year. That’s the price of a great fresh air cruise for two, or for a hotel suite in Las Vegas, where you can indulge in another, but a slightly less dangerous habit.
Giving up smoking cigars may not be easy, especially when it is part of your social life and has become as addictive as cigarettes. Everyone knows how smoking is bad for your health, and maybe even more important, to the health of those who are forced to share your exposure to the damaging smoke.
