Sigmund Freud (6 May 1856 – 23 September 1939), the founder of psychoanalysis may justifiably be called the most influential intellectual non-conformist of his age. His creation of psychoanalysis was at once a theory of the human psyche, a therapy for the relief of its ills, and an optic for the interpretation of culture and society.
The saying, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”, is attributed to Freud, a great friend of cigars who it is said, became annoyed in social circles where smoking was frowned upon or where other men weren’t smoking. As Freud’s stature grew and he became a celebrated professor, people noticed that his students and medical assistants took up cigar smoking as well. In addition he was addicted to cigarettes as well and chain smoker par definition.
You may ask yourself what is the meaning and the idea behind the quote “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”? The answer requires analysis – why do we enjoy a good cigar and what attributes give us so much satisfaction.
This brings us back to our question if the cigar is sometimes just a cigar. Well, in my opinion, no – a cigar is always so much more than just a cigar.
Smoke it BIG.
