    I was really curious to see how often everyone here lights up. I tend to smoke two cigars per day, every morning and evening. I really should cut down, but I honestly enjoy everything about smoking a cigar far too much to force myself to go awhile without one. =)

    Anyways, I'd really like to know! (to some extent, so I don't feel so bad about my little habit. Hahah!)

    While office was in the garage: 2 per day

    Since moving office inside: 3 per week

    I must say that my cigar time is of much higher quality now, since I smoke outside while not in front of a computer. Forces me to take a break every now and then. Today, for instance, I worked from 8-5 only getting up for coffee. Now, I'm outside with a Boli PC enjoying the evening. Better than puffing away 2+ sticks while stressing over a computer issue :)

    Due to the outrageous cost of getting cigars into this country I tend to limit myself to 2 or 3 a week, mainly on the weekend.

    A couple per week. I only smoke if I have the time to enjoy it. Usually with a good beer on the weekends. More so in the summer since the evenings stay warm.

    1 per day, but 8 per week. You do the math. ;)

    I like one a day when I can, more on weekend nights, but I take a day off here and there. More for budget than inclination.

    I try for one a day in the mornings after I drop my daughter off at school and have the house to myself. I sit outside and read with a cigar. This bitterly cold (yet not snowy) winter slowed it down, but weather is getting nicer, so I'm smoking more, again.

    With my wife TDY again and with no homework/paper commitments due to spring break, these past three days have been two-cigar mornings.

    *EDIT* Wife, not "with"...

    I just had my first in weeks. :( The cold suppresses my craving. For me, there's not many things better than a stogie on a warm, sunny day... I'll start smoking more a week or two.

    Not as much as I would like, maybe once or twice a month, while the weather was cold. It will pick up now that it's warming up, but I have been smoking a pipe more often, can smoke in the house, doesn't make it smell like sh*t.

    Does the smell of pipe tobacco smell and/or leave any trace of the typical stale tobacco-smoke smell? I've always been curious of pipe tobacco, but never had the opportunity to try it. The guys that work at my local B&M swear by it, saying that I should save my money and switch to pipe tobacco. I just don't see it being even remotely close to the complexity of cigars that I've come to look forward to and enjoy. I have to admit that it does smell good though whenever I get a whiff.

    I usually only smoke about 2 per week. Sometimes if I am feeling adventurous I will smoke 3 haha. I wish I was able to afford to smoke one a day though.

    Mostly 1 per day, sometimes 2. I'll even light up at 11 when the day finally slows down.

    No more than one at a time!

    Seriously, I'll usually have one in the morning while working outside then switch to my pipe.

    On truly great evenings, I will have cigar with my evening libation

    One on the way to work about three times a week, maybe one or two on the weekend. I would say five a week on average. This will increase since the weather is increasing (since I can fianally smoke outside).

    I go out every other week with a buddy and I smoke 2. So if my math is correct that comes out to one a week. Now that the nice weather is here, I see that number getting higher.

    I try to end every day with an hour of quiet and a great cigar. Weekends, I like to start the day with a great cup of French Press and a cigar in addition to the evening smoke. If friends come over, sometimes the evening smoke is in the afternoon.

    ...so, that makes it nine a week. Sometimes more. Sometimes less. YMMV.....

    Depends on so many things. Probably an average of 5 to 8 a week (now that it's warming up).

    Nice to know, but now I think I should really try to cut down a bit. Hahah. For the sake of my wallet/funds and since it seems as though I can easily see it turning into a habit, rather than enjoying each cigar like I currently do.

    The nice thing about smoking during my morning/afternoon commute, which is usually 1-2 hours depending on where I'm working for the day, is that I now rarely ever get frustrated trying to get through the infamous traffic in/around Los Angeles. If anything, sometimes I wish that there was more traffic so that I could enjoy my cigar even longer. Hahaha

    I am usually a 3-4 per week smoker. I would like to enjoy a cigar nightly, but I just don't have the ability to do that.
