    Default The Backsliders Thread.

    This is a thread for all us no good, backsliding, Christmas and Easter Christians. I'm starting this as thread to discuss good beer, cigars, R rated movies, cars with bad fuel mileage, and anything else I'm sure the holy pious will shame us over.

    I just can't imagine a heaven without good brew.

    Tonight I told my diet to take a hike. I went to my favorite Mexican restaurant. They have started serving a brew from Lexington Virginia, called 'Devil's Backbone.' I'm drinking the Lager style now. It has a good, smooth flavor, kinda reminds me of a Spaten from Gremany. I have only seen this beer served in restaurants, never for sale at the grocery store. Our stores have a poor selection, that only includes bud light and Old Milwaukee.

    My drug of choice is nicotine. In my younger days I quaffed a few brews. I was born in Germany but have never had a German beer. Nine.

    I smoked cigarettes from age 16 until my son was born when I was about 32. I will still smoke some if I'm at a bonfire, drinking some. I actually started smokimg premium cigars, and that helped get me off the cigarettes. Nicotine is like an antidepressant. When my wife left, I smoked fir several months, and had to vape, and use the patch to quit. I still put a patch on from time to time, cause the dreams are wild. I understand all too well about nicotine. The craving never really goes away.

    And on that note, I never had a German beer until about 8 years ago. There is nothing like it. I'm so spoiled now, nothing but the best pass my lips. I'm a beer snob.

    It appears that we're the only two backsliders here. I stopped drinking in 1992, not because I had a drinking problem even though I had wasted a few times, but because I didn't want to end up like my older brother who's an alcoholic and still drinks to excess everyday. Like I said, I'm a drug addict and my drug of choice is nicotine.

    I don't believe that its a sin to smoke as I have never been convicted by the Holy Spirit but I also know that it may not be the wisest thing to do.

    I see absolutely no problem in enjoying a premium cigar, I smoke cigarettes but I also had a stogy back in the day, the cheap ones like While Owl or El Producto. Never had a quality premium cigar. I smoked a pipe for a few years but gave it up because it was a hassle to always be cleaning my pipes. Enjoyed it very much though.

    If I were still a drinking man I think that it would be splendid for us to drink a few and spill a few steins of fine German beer and fire up a cigar from Havana. I'll blow some smoke rings 'cause that's the type of backslider that I am.

    Oh, good grief... MY thread!

    I don't think Jesus would criticize us for drinking a beer, or smoking a cigar. I think he was human and understood the value in good social interaction. He DID create some pretty awesome wine, you know.

    I'm a daily cigar smoker. I started smoking cig's when I was 16 or so... started dipping Skoal when I was 15. I quit cig's the day before my wife and I married, 35 years ago. I quit Skoal about 10 years later.... started cigars about 15-16 years ago.

    I also enjoy a good adult beverage about every other day or so. Beer is not my choice as frequently as it used to be, simply because of the carbs. I like whiskey, in moderation, of course.

    I KNOW I can quit any of them, any time I choose. I've proven it. I do not let any of those things control me.... just like I don't let food control me, or buying lottery tickets...

    Jesus taught us moderation.... not tee-totalness... (is that a word?)

    We are fortunate in my neck of the woods to have a craft brew place called Franconia... the guy came from Germany. His family have been brewing for generations. His pilsner is just excellent.

    Those Germans can certainly concoct a mean brew. My thoughts are trending towards cigars now. Maybe break my alcohol fast and crack open one of those bottles in your pic.

    What kind of cigars do you prefer?

    If I had to choose only one cigar to smoke from now on, it would probably be an Arturo Fuente... preferably a Hemingway Signature.

    Fortunately (since I can't afford those on a daily basis) I don't have to make that choice. I usually get a "fumas" type of one of the brand names like Padilla, or Upmann. I used to like some of the Rocky Patel smokes, but they are simply too pricey for what they are. For that price, I'll buy a Fuente, or a Padron.
