Interesting to see some answers from the other poll, so to keep the front page fresh I'll start another. How do you prefer to smoke a cigar? By yourself, with friends, at the B&M, working in the yard? What is your preference?

Most times by myself, however I get with a friend on Thursday nights and smoke a couple of cigars and talk. Plus once a month with my cigar club guys.

I like to smoke with some of my friends at my place and meet with my local group every Thursday and Friday at a local bar. But 80% of the time by myself on a week night ...

 Have never driven and smoked, but can see the draw

I mostly smoke alone, music or a game on. Occasionally I'll hop on the Google herf, always a good time. Meet up with friends is good too. I really do enjoy some me time though.

Most of my sticks get smoked on the commute, an hour each direction, which fits nicely with the smoke time of most robustos. But my preference is smoking/relaxing on the weekend while watching various things on Netflix, as anyone knows who reads my reviews. And once in awhile OZZ comes over, or I go visit him, and we have a smoke-fest, which is always fun.

Alone is the usual, but having a smoking buddy in the back yard to share a smoke and a beer is nice.

My preference is alone watching the ballgame or reading, but always enjoy company. Then fishing, I love a damn cigar and a morning of fishing.....

I should have put google here, I meant to leave to poll open and it won’t let me change it now.

It is interesting, I think we prefer to smoke with friends, but usually smoke cigars alone(reading, music, movies, etc). I know I enjoy a cigar either way! It is a bit more fun to discuss it if it is a new stick, I like to share new sticks....or new to me...

Now that I am down South...most nights I am on the lanai with my wife winding down a long day.  But my favorite???

My favorite (and Bruce can attest to the greatness of this method...lol...) was when I was in Ohio.  Every Monday night, the Fair Trade Cigar Club would convene at our....well, I guess you could call it our clubhouse or lounge for lack of a better term...30+ people enjoying food, drink, and great cigars.  We had grills, a full kitchen, a patio with fire pit.  2 Huge TV's.  Cabinet Humidor Storage.  High top Tables, Large table and leather seating...(they now have leather recliners and Darts)...a retro video gaming cabinet.  Storage for beer, wine and liquor...24/7 access.

For me there really is/was nothing better...

My favorite is out in the yard with my wife by the campfire. I also enjoy family get togethers... my brothers all smoke also, and we all enjoy trading our favorites and catching up.

Mostly for me it's playing or watching Golf and also once a month sitting around bulls**tting with a bunch of local riff raff I got pulled into about 5 years ago

Prefer to smoke alone with my thoughts but usually while walking early in the morning. With the guys in my garage watching a sporting event of some sort or a little poker game, and always have one in my mouth when doing some type of yard work/chores.

For me it's when I am on my travels even though I enjoy doing almost the entire list of what was put up. The reason I like to smoke my cigars when I travel is because the cigar "cements" the experience of where I was when I smoked a particular cigar,,,an association of sorts. I can remember exactly where I was and was thinking when I smoked a Cohiba Espy in Rome, Italy,,,,a Partagas D in Gibralter or when I was at Normandy I smoked an Opus X Chateau Reserve while walking through the gravesites of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us. So many experiences and cigars that I can relive that cigar and time like it was yesterday and those hours of thinking and filing those memories into life experiences.
