Being 21 myself and started pipe smoking at the age of 20, I was told by some friends that I was to young to be smoking a pipe or cigar. Frankly I find it better to smoke either of those two then be smoking cigarettes at my age which some of those friends do. So I was wondering how old were you (if you can remember :p) when you started smoking cigars and/or a pipe?

Two weeks before my join date on here. I have been lovon git ever since I joined, but it is starting to hurt the wallet. I started with a 28 quart coller, and now I have a 28 bottle wine cooler on the way. It is addictive, but enjoyable.
Thanks to everyone on here for all of the great advice since I have joined!

It was my spring break senior year, someone had some swisher sweets on the beach.

Soph in college, back to the exact same beach in a week, with quality sticks and more friend who enjoy cigars. woohoo.

edit: that is if you consider sweets cigars =P If not it was a camping trip shortly after with a CAO.

I actually got started late in life, I was in my early 30's, but I wish I would have started younger. I think of all the time I missed smoking good cigars.

Had my first swisher when I was 11 or 12. Smoked one probably less than once a month until I was 15, then stopped all together. Picked it back up again once I was 18 and started smoking higher quaility stuff just recently, at 22.

I was buying cigarettes regularly by 13. Quit them for the most part in my early 30's although I will still sometimes smoke them when I am on a serious gambling trip, a few times a year. (It's easy to stand up and smoke half a cigarette after a shoe while the dealer shuffles. Besides, lots of dealers hate any smoke at the table while playing and it's just better voodoo for me to have them see me walk a few feet away, light up, smoke, and extinguish before we start playing again. They appreciate it and I like the chance to stretch my legs every couple of shoes.)

I smoked my first cigar when I was around 15 but didn't have more than a handful until college when I would smoke them maybe monthly. I started smoking them regularly in my mid to later 20s, but didn't get "serious" about them until about 10 years ago - right around when I was giving up cigarettes.
