First Lady

My Name is Susan LaPointe and I'm the first lady

The First Lady – It all started a few years ago when my husband moved west. For me, smoking cigars started as a way to escape my day to day.

As a very busy business owner and a mother, down time

wasn’t something I got to see very often. When Chris moved here, he showed me that I very much needed to sit back and take a “deep breath”. Smoking cigars very quickly became that couple of hours a day where I didn’t have to think about work, kids, errands, chores, or my phone, it was just him and I. I believe this is when I really got to know my husband. And for that, cigar “hour” will always be one of my favorites.

I am the second half of Not Gentlemanly Cigar Smokers.
Smoking cigars has been a passion of mine for a long time. I don’t even know when I first started smoking.. at least 20 years ago.
For me, it’s a way to wind down, escape the outside world and just relax. Preferably with ‘The First Lady’, Susan. It’s Our Time!
A while back I started writing my reviews and Susan would model for them. People loved it and would message us all the time. Eventually with Susan, we started ‘Smoking With Chris’ on Instagram and that led to the creation of ‘Not Gentlemanly Cigar Smokers’ on Facebook. We started that group and this webpage because we felt the majority of cigar groups/pages/magazines seemed to forget that a very large portion of the cigar community is ‘the working men & woman’. And that is what we mean when we say “Not Gentlemanly”. We are blue collar, cigar smoking, every day people and proud of it!
