a cigar is a cigar, means there's no underlying or hidden meaning.

This line is attributed to Freud. He has said this to a colleague or a student shrink.

In psychology, there are a lot of symbols, and shrinks tend to decode and interpret them, in real life or in dreams.

For example, you dream of offering a cigar to someone

Now cigars have a phallic connotation. " a cigar is a transfer for a penis"

So this can be interpreted as wanting to have sex with this person.

But Freud warns about the limits of symbols. If you just feel like smoking a cigar, shrinks should always doubt that there is ALWAYS an underlying, hidden meaning. Your intention is just smoking, not necessarily a phallic activity.

freud: sometimes, a good cigar is just a good cigar.

Don't insist that something is always something else.

First of all, Sigmund Freud was an avid cigar smoker, since he was 24 til he died at age 79. In his studies, he would say things that were in dreams and everything came down to sexual meanings deep inside one's fantasy. He would say things like cigarettes could be marketed to women as a phallic symbol of empowerment. And so he was asked by someone, what was the symbollic intepretation of a cigar? His reply, "Sometimes, a good cigar is just a cigar." In other words, not everything has a deep meaning. Sometimes simplicity is just that, simple.

It depends on what you mean by miniature cigar. A little cigar the size of a cigarette is smoked the same way a cigarette is smoked. A cigarillo, which is just a slimmed down version of a cigar, is usually already cut and ready to light. Hope it helps, enjoy your smoke...

Nothing. "Close the nose cigar" is nonsense. You should ask the person to tell you what they said more clearly.

According to Cigar Afficianado the top cigar of the year 2012 is Flor de las Antillas Toro. The reasoning of this according to Cigar Afficianado is because of their hard work of cigar making, and because of how many times they made it on the Top 25 list of cigars according to Cigar Afficianado.

By a "dry cigar" I hope you mean one of the small European cigars that's intended to be smoked dry. Those you light and smoke like they were moist cigars.If by "dry cigar" you mean a moist cigar that got dried out...I know a guy who rehydrates such cigars with amaretto. He has a special humidor with a bowl of amaretto in it. The alcohol in the amaretto helps the moisture work its way into the cigar, and it comes out with a nice flavor. Takes a long time, though.AnswerYou can smoke a dry cigar but it is less that ideal. You will not get a nice flavor from the cigar. You best bet is to rehydrate the stick.AnswerYou can rehydrate it but you can't bring it back... once the oils dry up , they are gone forever. If you have acquired a taste for good cigars... it'll go to the trash...
