Why We Smoke

We all love cigars.

For some the act of enjoying a cigar is an escape from the daily monotony, a small vacation to be enjoyed whenever we need it. For some it enhances an already pleasurable task or take the edge off that thing we would just rather not do.

For whatever reason we light up I think we can all agree it is a connection that brings people together regardless of background. We can discuss and converse about our differences knowing that we share a hobby and a culture. I believe this is a design the world should find enviable, especially in such a divided climate. It seems to me like we can show the world that our similarities can far outweigh our differences.

With that in mind, what are your opinions…why do you light up? Do you prefer to smoke a cigar while accomplishing a task, or would you rather dedicate your time solely to the leaf? With a group or would your aim be to have some time to yourself?

Stop by and let us know what you think, we can't wait to see you.

Your friends here at Fogue and Bates.
