I wonder if this is how Addiction started?

After smoking a Graycliff Red offered to me I decide to buy a humidor and enter into the joy of cigar smoking. Surely a 75-100 sized humidor will be more than sufficent for years to come. I've got it all planned out!:tu

Next I visit a local B&M and pick up a small handful. I'm smoking one every few days, everything is fine. Then I go on a Carribean cruse and come back with two handfuls of duty free or locally purchased cigars. Hey, the humidor is starting to look nice. I have a fair selection!:ss

Then my son, who has smoked cigars for a year, comes to town and we sweep into two different B&M's. Now the humidor is getting pretty full and I'm smoking at least one cigar a day.

I was purposely shoved, with malice, by several BOTL's, and fell into the "devil place". (Thats my story if the wife asks anyhow. :)) I just figure I'll bid on a few items and don't care if I win or lose. Heck, I know how to under bid as I've worked ebay for a decade. I've entered the zone, the twilight zone!

And wouldn't you know, I won them all. The first 25 cigars have arrived and I have another 30 on the way. :tpd:

Honestly, how did I ever get in so deep so quick? I must have been sleep bidding err, walking.:sleep:

I guess I'll go with a tupperdor with beads for a while.... In the meantime, I've banned myself from cigarbid!

I'm not sure how to break this to you, but you're wasting your time with tupperware!

Just get an extra large cooler and accept your lot in life.

Acceptance brings peace. And more cigars.

LOL i remember thinking that "ill Never smoke more than once a week" i smoke like 2 or 3 a day now, and i have 3 humidors ( and thinking of a fourth!) I don't remember the beginning much, its all covered in a smoky haze... but i definitely enjoyed every second of it!

You should know that cigars are never happy in tupperware. They like to hang in larger spaces with lots of company. And there is nothing more depressing to be around than a few lonely, unhappy cigars.:ss

Firstly I resemble that remark!!!!

You sir have found the patented Bryan Winston Roadmap! I remember posting just over 30 days ago that I'd never need a humi bigger than 50 and I'd smoke one a month tops. I remember asking about the devil site and saying I could control it. I remember bidding up $600 worth of stuff and saying "I can't possibly win it ALL."

That's, like, all profound and stuff. :r

I nominate Ashcan Bill as Official Club Stogie Sage!!!

(Bad news is, to do it right, you probably should go live in a cave at the top of a mountain. Good news is, your wife will probably let you smoke in it... because it's a cave.)

Syekick... welcome to the slope. Save your self some angst and go buy the cooler. :ss
