Cigars have a way of letting stress melt away. They slow time, relaxing the mind and body. The idea of kicking back with a cigar is a break from the vigor of everyday life regardless of what kind you lead, or how much money you make. Throughout history and pop-culture cigars have been depicted as a luxury item for the wealthy and social elite. However, diving into the depths of this culture will prove otherwise and show that it is enjoyed by every walk of life. Cigars aren’t accessories for the ego, they are a luxury item for the soul and that has no social barriers.
