Absolutely, positively wrong! What nether orifice did you pull that out of to make room for your head? I'm, a cigar smoker and know many others. There's no consistent point of view on anything except the love of cigars and the freedom to smoke. If pressed to generalize, I would say they probably have libertarian leanings.
Obviously you don't care for the smell of smoke. I think that cigar smokers would support you in your right to go where you won't smell any.

Cigars taste like fecal matter.

I'm afraid to ask how you know what fecal matter tastes like.

Even cigar lovers say that about some cigars, we call those dog rockets.

The best cigars usually are known for a little "barnyard smell", Cubans are particularly known for that.

Having briefly experienced the alternative it's no big deal. That will definitely change your outlook on the end. Enjoy life for it will be over no matter what you do.

I don't smoke (due to respiratory problems), but quality tobacco (without additives) smells heavenly!
