An article on the rise of cigar smoking in England, despite new anti-smoking laws.

http://www.newsweek.com/2010/07/23/smoked-out.html

My favourite quote from the article.

“There is a strong distinction between cigarette smokers and cigar smokers,” says Freeman. “What we hear from bars and restaurants is that cigar smokers are civilized people who spend money and spend time.” :o

This is excellent and extremely pleasing in one way, and quite worrying in another. While I'm all in favour of more comfortable places to enjoy a cigar with friends, this runs smack into the concern that cigar smoking is becoming a snobbish behaviour not for the 'everyday' man. That I don't agree with; what I want are more places where (if the mood takes me) I can smoke an inexpensive cigar with a coffee or a beer and not have to worry about 'keeping up appearances'...
