On Doctor's Orders

A Cigar is a Valuable Way to Release the Stress of a Busy Day
Charles Carluccio
From the Print Edition:
Fidel Castro, Summer 94

(continued from page 2)

Another important person in history made a big mistake regarding cigars. It was Rudyard Kipling, not Groucho Marx, who first said, "A woman is only a woman, but a good cigar is a smoke." Rudy, a woman is never only a woman, and a good cigar is much more than a smoke. The special experience of enjoying a good cigar can be transcendental.

It is my professional opinion that cigar smoking is beneficial to one's mental health. Surgeon general: I challenge you to prove otherwise, but first try a Gloria Cubana Wavell after a good Italian meal with espresso and grappa. Enjoy!

Dr. Charles Carluccio, a psychiatrist, is a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
