Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
cigar case, Summer 93
(continued from page 3)
I picked up your publication while on vacation in Denver, and I can't remember when a magazine has brought me so much pleasure! I submitted my subscription card immediately, and I'd like to know how to obtain the first copy.
As one of life's most adamant nonsmokers, I never even permitted smoking in my home. However, I did observe that the only smokers I felt really enjoyed their habit were cigar and pipe smokers.
When I turned 40, 1 developed a taste not only for cigars but also for another of life's delights--a Martini. Discussing this phenomenon with a friend, he astutely observed, "You never needed a Martini--or a cigar--until you were 40!"
As a single mother, the practical side of cigar smoking is that it affords me genuine time to relax. When I smoke a cigar, I can't do anything else except read or watch television. It becomes a reward at the end of the day, and I do took forward to it.
Unfortunately, there are very few public places where I can enjoy a cigar, so I really appreciate the listing in the back of your magazine of restaurants specifically devoted to "cigar aficionados."
While most parents discourage smoking for their children, my teenage son and I enjoy comparing notes on cigars. He enjoyed your magazine more than I did because he loved the article on poker playing.
Keep up the good work--we both look forward to our next issue.
