Some advice for a first-time cigar smoker on /r/cigars:
Enjoy the experience. Don’t focus on enjoying the cigar. Enjoy the weather. Enjoy the company. Enjoy the music or conversation. Enjoy the beverage (I’d suggest water or tea or coffee without too much crap in it). Yes, also enjoy the cigar, but the time should be about more than the cigar.
I’m learning this every day of my life: don’t focus on the list/goal/want, enjoy the experience. Enjoy the quiet. Enjoying having made. Enjoy their smile. The list is just a way to get to do more of those things you enjoy and be able to enjoy them more. This time should be about more than the list.
