How often can you smoke a cigar safely?
According to the NIH, smoking one or two cigars a day doubles the risk of cancer of the lips, tongue, mouth, throat, or esophagus.
If you smoke more than two of them daily, the risk rises dramatically.
Is it OK to smoke a cigar once a week?
In fact, about half of all cigar smokers smoke less than once a week, and another 17.9% smoke 6 or fewer cigars a week. By the same token, excessive cigar use may increase risk for lung cancer, but further research might show that more moderate consumption reduces the risk of Alzheimer disease.
Is smoking a cigar a day bad for you?
Smoking more cigars each day or inhaling cigar smoke leads to more exposure and higher health risks. The health risks linked to occasional cigar smoking (less than daily) are less clear. Like cigarettes, cigars give off secondhand smoke, which is also dangerous.
How long should you smoke a cigar?
To keep it lit and smoking nice, take a drag or two about once every minute or so. Relax, and enjoy the flavor of the smoke. This isn’t a race! Depending on the size of your stogie, smoking it should take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.
