Have been a pipe only smoker for about 10 years. Started with cigs when I was in the Army. Then switched to cheap cigars, every now and then would treat myself to a "good" cigar but usually machine rolled from Middletons. Then I noticed they were made from pipe tobacco, so I tried a pipe. No patience, no mentor, went back to cigars. About 10 years ago after a wake-up call with my Doctor, he suggested switching to a pipe. Older and with more to drive me, I slowed down and learned to smoke a pipe. Have never regretted it!
I refuse to count my pipes because then I would have an actual answer for when my wife asked "The" question. Tobaccos, prefer Aromatics, but don't think there is anything better than starting your day with Carter Hall in a Mod Cob with Maxwell House! Got into making pipes awhile back and one of my favorite smokers is a poker that I made for sampling tobacco at the Raliegh Pipe and Tobacco Expo.
And I do have a sense of humor, if you can't laugh at yourself, you shouldn't laugh at other people. I love laughing at other people! So enough babbling from an aromatic fart. Hope to find some Pipers in my area to meet up with for a smoke. Some folks call this a hobby, bless their heart, I think it's a way of life!

Welcome to the board. So your doctor actually recommend you switch to a pipe? What was his reasoning if you don't mind me asking? I love a good "the doctor to told me to smoke a pipe" story. Makes me feel good.

We thought I was having a heart attack, turned out to be a Spasmatic Esophagus. This is usually brought on by stress. It's like getting a wake-up call that if you don't change the way your handling things, the next one could be the real thing. So his logic was that if I tried to quite smoking the stress of quiting would do more harm than smoking. But, pipes is the least harmful of any tobacco. So if you can't quite, do the one that is doing the least amount of damage. But to his surprise and my relief, after 10 years of Piping I'm calmed down enough to not need any meds for stress or blood pressure. I contribute this to the calming ritual of smoking a pipe because it's the only thing in my life thats changed. Still eat what ever I want, do what ever I want (within reason, lol). So thats my "The Doctor made me do it" story.
And thanks for the welcome!
