I used to smoke cigars more often but over time, those opportunities became few and far between. This got me thinking that I would smoke them on certain occasions. Some occasions are worth feeling good about, but then some occasions are worth celebrating with a cigar. It may sound like a cliche, but there is something magical about having a cigar with your closest friends to celebrate each other’s successes in life.
While occasionally people do take up cigar smoking as a regular occurrence, these days, many people tend to reserve them for a special occasion. If you are looking for something for those momentous episodes in your life, the having a cigar like a Montecristo No. 3 is a great cigar for that.
On The Birth Of A Child
When your partner has just given birth, and after everything has settled a bit, grab yourself a few minutes with your closest friends and family and have a cigar. Smoking a cigar after the birth of a baby is more of a symbolic act. You’re about to enter a new world of responsibility. Gather those that have gone through it before around you, and you can listen to their experienced words.
Whether it is your wedding, or that of a very close friend, celebrating with a cigar is a right of passage that should be done.
Again, sharing a cigar with those you are closest to is not necessarily about the smoking. It is the marking of a passing life milestone, and there is no better way to do this than with your best friends.
Of course, there are far worse things that can be done at a bachelor party. Smoking cigars together marks a sophisticated send off for you or your closest friend.
Mark the completion of your annual trip around the sun with a cigar. As long as you have already had the necessary legal amount of birthday’s required, smoking a cigar once a year on the anniversary of your birth can make the occasion feel more special. Sometimes it’s nice to have these little rituals in life.
New Year’s Eve
The end of a year and the beginning of a new one represents the potential for a renewed start in life, it is also a chance to reflect on how the last twelve months have gone for you. Enjoy a cigar to celebrate as a new year starts and mark the closing of the previous year.
Earning A Promotion
Whether you have earned a promotion or a good friend, it is time to bring out the cigars. You may also want to smoke a cigar with friends and close work colleagues if you have secured a major deal, sold something big, or completed a major work project. Celebrating success is important as it makes you feel great about yourself and builds confidence. Celebrate those successes.
A poker night would not be a poker night without whiskey, dimmed lights, and cigars. Of course, this is not really a monumental life moment. But, it’s still something that it could be argued is entirely necessary.
