I also smoke (outside only) and I never had that problem. If you are dragging on a cig every minute like a NORMAL smoker does it WILL NOT just go out. A cig is burning leaves, if its in contact with anything combustible and a slight breeze it will easily set a fire. If a lit cig is in an an ashtray it will burn all the way to the filter on its own.
I think you are confusing cigs with blunts. Oh wait, are you the nit that left that cig burning at Dr Wards office?
