Cigar/Vape smoking

I admit it. I used to love cigarettes. Now I vape, and smoke the occasional cigar. I am thinking of quitting all together, but I associate booze with smoking, so it's hard when I am drinking socially.

That being said, I do not drink in excess often, so I use my vape probably 2 times a month. Cigars are about once a quarter.

I know both are bad, but I like them. Is 4-5 cigars a year going to kill me that much quicker. I eat very well (5-10 servings of veggies a day), I am pretty active (cycling, flag football, basketball league, kickball, hikes, walks, etc) and I don't drink a lot like I used to. Eventually I would like to be smoke/vape free. Maybe I just need to button down and knock it out all together.

I smoke roll ups (I buy loose tobacco and roll cigarettes myself as a pack of cigarettes here in the UK cost a fortune) .... been smoking since I was 11 and doubt that I will ever be able to stop

tried the e-cigarettes, but they dont do much for me, and no-one knows the long term effects

Yet you know the long term effects of smoking and you still do?

If at all possible, quit smoking altogether.

When people say that smoking is very bad what they really mean is that the habit of smoking a pack a day is bad, and most smokers do because it's extremely addictive. There are areas in European cities where running for 15 minutes equals smoking one cigarette because of pollution.

I wouldn't worry about a smoking habit when it's expressed in weeks and months rather than per day. Cigars are nowhere near as bad as cigarettes because you don't inhale them. The dose makes the poison.

I had a pretty detailed account of watching my son die of esofigial (sp) cancer, but I'll let your imagination guide you. It was,is worse than you can imagine.
Don't wish that on your family and loved ones.

I have not smoked cigarettes for a very long time. I finally decided this at the moment when I realized that I had serious lung problems and I could not smoke so much. It was just suicide. I also could not simply refuse them because I was seriously addicted. I thought for a long time and my girlfriend advised me to replace cigarettes with a vape. At first I was skeptical about this, but then I realized that this is a really great idea. In the end, I started looking for a reliable vape and Vape Liquid with a low nicotine content. I found a great store and it became my favorite vape shop for the next 5 years
I got there a super tasty liquid for 10 bucks and an awesome and high-quality vape for $ 150 from the smok brand! for over 5 years and since then I have never smoked cigarettes ...

Is that relative low rate something you can't just stop?
