How long had he quit for? I did the same thing but it was probably 10-12 years between the cigarettes and cigars and I did not have that problem. I usually smoke a cigar or two on the weekends in the summer. I was about half drunk at a party 3-4 years ago and bummed a cigarette of a guy that was smoking there. Darn thing made me about half sick. They are so expensive now that I did not want to seem to waste it but the ashtray smoked most of it.
The best thing I did when I quit was purely by accident, I bought a new to me truck that had not been smoked in and didn't smell like an ashtray. My old habit was to hit the key then hit the cigarette lighter almost in the same motion. Newer truck no smoke smell and a determination to keep it that way. I also spent a lot less time in bars which helped a lot.
