How are the sales of fine cigars affected by the present anti-smoking mood?

Geronimo: There's a general feeling that cigars aren't as unhealthy as cigarettes and I think that's probably true because of the way people smoke them, i.e. taking the occasional puff and not inhaling the smoke, and the infrequency in which they're smoking them. The average person smoking Havana cigars probably doesn't smoke more than 2-3 a week and if he doesn't smoke cigarettes then the amount of harmful substances he's taking into his lungs is
Geronimo: Cigars have tended to gain in such circumstances and particularly the bigger cigars because the smaller, miniature, mass-produced cigars are really substitute cigarettes. You don't usually get people standing around on corners chain-smoking large Havanas.
