New here, and to cigars
#1
Where to start...well I turned 18 yesterday, but I might as well be upfront and say I've had myself some sticks here and there over the past month or two.  I live in the Chicagoland area and am a Senior in high school.  I have a Boxer puppy that is almost a full time job, but she's worth it.  I like photography, even though i don't do as much as I use to, but when I am feeling creative I will spend a lot of time getting what i want.

As for cigars,  I started out with Acids, but I've already developed a dislike for them.  A couple of my favorites so far (even though I have a long journey ahead of me) are the CAO Brazilia series, the Mx2, and the Romeo y Julieta Bully.  I tried an Italia this morning, and a Soprano yesterday, but didn't care for them too much.  I will have to come back to them later.  I still have no Humi, so I am buying by the stick unfortunately.

So there you have it,

Cory

I've actually been debating the humi issue, and I might just go for a cooler right away and just use an empty box for singles or something.  That way it will last me a bit longer...I hope.

Also..The humi I was going to purchase on cirgamony I had found elsewhere cheaper, but I'd have to pay shipping twice cause I'll need beads.  If I buy a cooler I'll just need to pay for shipping on the beads and a hygro.

[welcome] Another boxer owner! Smile I have a male that is now 10 months! And yes...a handful for sure!! LOL

Well, welcome to SC. Its a great place and you will learn a ton of info on cigars and things in general about the awesome hobby we all share. Serg is very correct concerning the humi or cooler. So that is a wise move for you.

So enjoy!!

[welcome] SW, I used to be a boxer owner, had a male fawn man they are a full time job even as adults, spend lots of time with her and train her right and it will be much easier.  I say you are on the right track with the coolidor and beads.

Acids, eh? Right on man, that's what I got started with. And ironically enough brazillias were one of those that got me off the flavored/herb sticks. Weclome aboard man, and welcome!

Welcome!

Buy yourself a cooler from Lowe's or HD and some beads, and you'll be set.  Oh- and freeze your cc in a block of ice now, before it's too late [devil]

Haha.  Luckily I don't have a credit card and hope not to in the near future.  I will have my debit card in the next couple days, but atleast that money I have.  Today I bought a plastic container that can hold maybe 10 sticks and a water pillow to hold me over until after the holidays.

Thanks for the warm welcome.
