When you are smoking a cigar and everyone else is doing the same, the heady aroma is enjoyed by all present and it’s very pleasant.
But when you are smoking a pipe, someone sitting next to you smoking a cigar can drive you nuts – especially when the smoke drifts your way.
I find this extremely annoying – not only is the aroma not appreciated at that point in time – because I wish to enjoy my pipe tobacco – the odor from the cigar smoke leaves a trace on my clothing and stays with me until I dump my clothes into the laundry.
I would urge all smokers to be sensitive.
We already have enough problems from non-smokers; let’s not start provoking each other now.
