what does"He thought better of it."mean? Henry Gonzalez smiled. He had never seen him smoke. He started to ask slyly whether the cheroot came from Castro and then, as the other Congressmen converged on them, he thought better of it. Henry's instincts were sound. Unwittingly he would have touched on a sore point. The cigar actually was Cuban, though preboycott. The firm of H. Uppman had been using Havana tobacco since Edward VII became its client, and Kennedy was a confirmed Uppman customer.

He started to ask slyly whether the cheroot came from Castro and then, as the other Congressmen converged on them, he thought better of it. He thought better of it is a typical phrase in english meaning : He thought it better not to do it. In this sentence he started to ask something but then decided that it would be better not to ask.
