I fail to understand why people are here bitching about prices. Yes they are expensive and yes I wish prices were lower but I smoke cigars for 1 reason: ENJOYMENT. When it is time for me to have a cigar I eant to have something I like, so if that stick is between $11-$25 so be it. What is my enjoyment worth? I probably cant get a meal and a drink for myself for $25 and certainly can't bring a friend for that price. So if you enjoy cigars then pay up and shut up, or stop smoking, or smoke cigs, or $2 seconds from the gas station for crying out loud!

We as consumers hold a lot of power, because our money is more important to them than their product is to us. If they don't have our money, they don't have an income. If we don't buy their cigars, we just spend our money on different cigars and there are lots to choose from. Of course that would have to happen on a huge scale. :)

Yea...that sux.
I will just enjoy the ones I have, unless a good deal comes around. It does narrow my buying choices..so that's good in a way..:unsure:

Not sure how long you have been collecting or smoking cigars, but I think this is less bitching and more poking fun at the continual rise in prices of CC's over a short period of time. No one here is foreign to "paying up" for cigars but if we use a medio siglo cohiba as an example, (arguably a worth it but still pricey petit robusto) that was 15$ 2ish years ago that is currently market priced around 34$. If the plan is to increase that price further, then it doesn't make sense to purchase in a very saturated market that has many fantastic cigars in the 0$-40+$ range just because its a cuban cohiba.

Everybody knows that after work I eat dinner and smoke a cigar. I have a saturation point when it comes to human interaction and work usually takes me past that point.

Being quite comfortable with minimal inter-personal interactions during the pandemic I have come to the conclusion that in my next live I will be a Bigfoot. People will believe I exist but have no real evidence except for the ocassional pie missing from some old lady's window sill.

Same here. Every few years some camper will be quoted in the news saying something like "it looked menacing, but all it did was grab a couple beers from my ice chest before scratching itself and disappearing into the woods."
