Smoking a Cigar The Right Way


For some people, pulling in air without inhaling is a difficult and confusing process, making your cigar smoking experience an unpleasant one. But fret not, we are here to help you get back on the straight and narrow so you can properly enjoy your quality stick stress-free.

Why Can’t I Seem To Take a Proper Draw of My Cigar?

When first starting your cigar journey, there is so much to know. From the right lighter to use, what type of cigar to try, and even how to cut the sucker! It might be jarring to realize that when you go to take your first puff you are not supposed to take a breath through the cigar. Instead, you suck on it like a straw.

When you drink through a straw, the liquid doesn't go into your lungs, does it? You don't drown every time you sip cola with your takeout, right? Of course not!

A cigar is the same way. When you draw from your cigar, you're actually pulling smoke into your mouth, not your lungs or stomach—it simply stops there. Easy enough, right?
