Default Longest period without a cigar?

Gentlemen, it's been a long time...

Unfortunately I've only managed to smoke one or two real cigars in the last couple of years, mainly due to not having a proper smoking area in my tiny rented apartment and the UK having sucky weather (of course!) which pretty much limits me to about 48 hours of sunlight in July...

On the plus side, I have about 5-6 boxes of stogies that have been ageing nicely in the humidor!

So, what's the longest period you've gone without a proper smoke and why?

About two weeks while I was sick.
I didn't have a cigar from birth until I was about 15 so I guess 15 years would be the longest time for me.

I spent about a year under the foolish notion that I could be satisfied going without. Then, I remembered that cigars are good.

Welcome back, Harpo!

Winter time seriously limits smoking up here. I go months at a time without smoking. Been a warm winter though so I've been able to get a weekly smoke in this year without a problem.

Maybe 10 days when I was sick, or had surgery.

Maybe about 2 weeks because of being too busy on deployment.
I smoke one everynight on shift because about 80% of my fire department is into cigars and it's a good way for us to come together after dinner.
