Thank You, Cigarette Smokers...by SeanMike Whipkey

It's likely the places that value cigar smoking patrons, the places that realize the difference between the types of smokers, are those places that wish to maintain their customer base and fulfill those rules.

The all-new Cigar Advisor is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor has just published a contributors’ opinion piece relating to smoking bans, and the impact of cigarettes on such legislation.

CigarAdvisor contributor SeanMike Whipkey has some words of gratitude for cigarette smokers as it relates to smoking bans, and he isn’t even kidding. In an opinion piece entitled, "Thank You, Cigarette Smokers," Whipkey argues that a selective, properly-implemented smoking ban is actually a boon to cigar smokers.

Whipkey argues that the worst of the hardcore anti-smoking people may decry all smoke as horrible, but that they represent a minority. Most people really only hate cigarette smoke. With a ban in place, he writes, suddenly restaurant and bar patrons find they don't have to deal with smoke infusing all of their clothes and hair, necessitating more laundry and dry cleaning and late night showers if one doesn't wish one's bed to smell of stale smoke.

"But as a cigar smoker," he continues, "it's likely the places that value cigar smoking patrons, the places that realize the difference between the types of smokers, those places wish to maintain their customer base and fulfill those rules. Not all cigar smokers are going to smoke a cigar every time they visit a restaurant that allows it. More importantly, almost anyone, smoker or not, appreciates the ability to have a choice when it comes to sitting in a cloud of smoke over the course of an evening."
