Default Anybody smoke when they're sick?

I've been fighting this head cold for a week now, and can't really smell or taste anything.

My head feels like a wet cinderblock. A cigar doesn't even sound good.

No. Why would anyone want to smoke a cigar when they are sick?

As soon as I start getting sick I smoke like a freaking chimney. The cold always clears up quickly. It's worked for me almost every time I've tried it.

No, I pretty much lose any desire to smoke. I'm just now feeling good enough to smoke after fighting a bug for the last couple of weeks. It's nice to finally "want" a cigar again.

I have smoked while sick and it isn't worth it. If you just wait and smoke when you are better you will be amazed at how good your senses are. It is nice to take some time off and come back, use the sick time for that IMHO.

I've tried it in the past and unless you're looking to get rid of a dog rocket, it's not worth it.

Nope, if you are that sick it seems it would be a waste of a cigar if you can't taste it.
