I just want to pass along some things I’ve learned as a newbie to help my fellow newbies.
1) Read all you can, especially some of the great posts on this site but practice fiscal responsibility and use good fiscal sense. Learn with your heart but shop with your head
2) Don’t get caught up by ratings, they’re not all as unbiased as you might think
3) Keeping the first two I listed in mind remember that a good cigar doesn’t have to be expensive and just because a it’s an expensive cigar doesn’t mean it will be a good cigar.
