It's not really poisoning...when the small amount of nicotine in a cigar makes you ill, it's usually referred to as a rush, not quite as far along as a poisoning...for it to be poisoning it would have to be sixty milligrams of nicotine (the amount in about 30-40 cigarettes), whcih has the potential to kill an adult who is not a smoker if all of the nicotine were absorbed. This figure is ~120 mg in chronic cigarette smokers, smoking an average of 20 non-light cigarettes delivering ~1.7 mg of nicotine each daily.

While a soda works, hard candy would take too long...the easiest solution is just a teaspoon or two of sugar and the nicotine rush is usually neutralized within moments...

Probably has a bit to do with it. The AVO Heritage is a fairly stout cigar, speed smoking something like that has the potential to give an experienced smoker a case of the spins, let alone a newer smoker. Best to slow down a bit.

I feel for her, man. My 3rd cigar was a Diesel UHC and it put me down. I was dizzy and felt sick for about 20 minutes. I went to the bathroom, blew chunks and felt tons better. Still a little woozy, but better.

Now, when I start to feel the dizzys I grab a soda or some kind of candy. It takes away the stomach aches, however, the head spins still stay

Are you inhaling it? An AVO is usually a great gentle smoke to me at least. Maybe go with a lighter smoke,smoke it slow and drink water with it after a meal maybe. And take your time and enjoy the smoke, put it down for a few minutes if you have to. Its no race.

Definitely helps to smoke a cigar after a decent sized meal.

I find it interesting - so let me give you a bit more information about what nicotine actually does to the body.

The way that nicotine reacts with your brain causes the reaction of dumping "reserve" sugar into your blood stream. This takes your "reserve" sugar and convinces your brain to flood all of it into your blood stream - far more than it would normally. This rapidly depletes your "reserved" sugar FAR faster than you will be used to. So after some amount of time you end up with a bottomed out blood sugar.

A "nicotine buzz" is actually an extreme form of a sugar high.

PS - about 4 weeks ago I cleaned vomit off of a carpet from where a female friend of mine was smoking hookah and had lied to me about the last time she ate. I now keep sugar packets in my room.

I keep some plain M&Ms handy just in case. As stated, sugar is your friend when smoking a strong cigar, and so is slow speed. Many times smoking too quickly will result in ill feeling. So, Rebekka got a double-whammy of empty stomach and speed smoking. Never a good combination! FLY NAVY!

1. PICS are needed for things like this.

2. Did she eat anything before hand

3. How can you have no boiled sweets in your house

I almost forget my remedy is soft toffee a cube or six (like anyone stops at one cube) works wonders.

Heh she would have killed me if I'd taken pictures of her on the floor. It might have been worth it though. We usually smoke after dinner but this was an after lunch one, lunch is a lighter meal. What is a boiled sweet?

The consensus is sugar is the fix, which i whole heartedly agree with. As far as the delivery system, I have had great success with emptying a sugar packet or two under my tongue and letting it dissolve.
Oh yeah, my first time my "friends" definitely took pictures.... just sayin'

Hahahaha!!

Im perfectly ok with her killing you just as long as she tapes it.

And a boiled sweet is the English thus proper and correct way of saying hard candy.

I was smoking a Cain Daytona the other day and accidentally inhaled a full pull. I used to smoke cigarettes so I guess maybe I reverted back to my old habit when not paying attention. It kicked my butt, I got light headed and had to out the stick, thought I might get sick, but the feeling went away pretty quickly. Luckily I was most of the way done with it.

Oh, why is it called a boiled sweet, I mean hard candy is self explanatory. Boiled sweet sounds like something sweet thrown in boiling water. Like a hard boiled egg or something.

The term is a bit redundant as the only way a Brit knows how to cook anything is to throw it in a pot and boil away for 2-4hours.
