Let us know whether it's a couple times a week, or 20 times a day!

Into my 49th year of pipe smoking and still look forward too my next blend to enjoy. Depending whether I get sleep on any particular night my pipe enjoyment can be from 11 too/as much as 17 bowls a day. In the past I've done 19 a few times but it's a bit much. Need the old taste buds too rest Twisted Evil

Most days 7-9 bowls a day however when I'm bothered with insomnia the numbers climb. One day within the last couple weeks I got up around 5:30 in the morning and didn't go back to bed until 9:00 AM the following day. During that period I smoked 18 bowls of tobacco. It took me three days to clean and polish all the pipes I used. Rolling Eyes

I have no average number, all depends on the WX/temps. Lately two or three in the late afternoon/evening. Nice temps, maybe more. Hotter than hell or colder than a well diggers azz, none! Lots of you guys pump out more in a day than I do in a week!! Another reason my TAD days are over!! I'll probably never smoke all the 'baccy/cigars I have accumulated!! But I'm tryin.' cheers FTRPLT

Sure, Lat blends are good but expand your horizon and also try a few Burley blends. Like John Patton's Storm Front, Solani ABF, also an old codger... Carter Hall...especially aged a few years in a Mason jar. HH Old Dark Fired is basically a pressed Burley with a nice touch of Virginia's.

2 bowls/day M-F. Weekends it may be 3/day. More than that my palate is compromised.

Few bowls a week. Used to smoke at least 1 bowl a day, 2-3 bowls on weekends, but then my children got a little older and I have no time to sit around and enjoy a pipe.

In the meantime, at least my tobacco is getting a bit of age on it. Wink

Just wait until you retire, your tobacco consumption will double. Try using the gravity drop and slight tamp with your finger since you have a sensitive palate, might help. Much cooler smoke. That's one reason I can smoke as much as I do with no tongue or palate issues. The firmer you pack your pipe the more restricted it is and your baccy will get much hotter as well as the briar. If I smoke a blend that's to moist I will get what I call " a snake bite "! Can burn like HELL

Can't say how many bowls I smoke since I'm too lazy to count. Some pipes I smoke have bowls big enough for two pipes, so in my case, gram weight might be a better gauge. I know a guy who only smokes cobs, and he smokes about 12-14 a day, but if he was smoking briars or meers, that number would likely be lower. Doesn't matter, he's happy with what he does, and I'm happy with what I do, which is what it's all about anyway.

Subtract the parenthetical cigars, and that's pretty much my smoking habits as well

One-2 bowls per day, 2-4 times a week, depends on the weather.

I am on the lighter end of the spectrum I guess. I seem to average 4-5 bowls a week at the moment. That may expand a bit with daytime bowls after school starts up and I've got the house to myself again! Very Happy

On work days I usually only smoke one bowl in the evenings. I smoke 2 to 4 on my days off. The count mostly depends on what I have to do that day and the weather since I smoke outside. Too hot or too cold and I smoke less.

2 or 3 bowls a day as I sip my daily Dram of single malt. If I'm
celebrating a particularly good day of killing weeds, I may opt
for a second Dram which requires filling more Bowls Laughing

Zero to six. I also smoke stogies, do a little snuff, and even an occasional chaw. Once a year, seriously, I might have a cigarette cadged from my brother, who, seriously, smokes about one a day...or so he says.

For me it's more a case of how many bowls do I FILL per day than how many do I SMOKE per day Laughing

I work from home and therefor I can/may smoke in doors and as much as I like.

I re-light all the time because I work while I smoke and I smoke while I work. Take a few puffs and put the pipe down just to re-light a couple of minutes later. I don't really like it this way but that's how the cookie crumbles. I prefer to fill a pipe and sit back and finish the bowl. But, as you all know, our work always interferes with our pleasures

So, I might fill 10 bowls but only smoke about 5 ....the rest goes down the drain.

To answer the question.....I guess I smoke about 4 to 6 bowls per day

I'm grateful for this thread. I've just realized that I'm in a rut which I've tried to avoid all my life. Smoking the pipe should be a pleasure, not a habit.

So, as from this very moment, I'm changing my habit to a pleasure lol!

1-2 bowls a day weather permitting (I only smoke outdoors and Winter really puts it less than that).

Sometimes on weekends I'll go 3 bowls but that is very, very rare. I think the most I smoked was 6 bowls in one day. My teeth and tongue felt like they were wearing sweaters and my mouth was as dry as a cork lake.

No of course not. Not that I'm in any position to judge, mind. Wink

Ted, not so sure about that. And I say this based on my consumption on my days off from work. After retirement I really don't see this changing. But we shall see!
