Many of us had a pipe hiatus. Mine was about 8 years. Glad you're back.


Cheers,

RR

Welcome back!

Years ago (in a Galaxy far, far away) I had to give it up for nearly two years because my wife didn't want any second hand smoke around as she nursed the baby. Then another time for a couple months after surgery. We all have our reasons for taking a hiatus. But I'm curious as to what brought you back? Was it the relaxation, the ritual, or maybe a friend who smokes a pipe?

Welcome back! I gave up smoking pipes for cigars. I can't imagine how much tobacco I could have saved up instead of burning cigars the last 15 years!

a friend of mine is big into cigars and he was talking to my about cigars one day. I told him i had never been big into cigars but i used to smoke a pipe. The next day he came in with a old kaywoodie and a box of carter hall and said "My grandfather gave me this and i have never been able to get it to smoke properly, think you can show me?" So at break i taught him how to pack the bowl and taught him how to light it and he smoked that bowl and enjoyed it. Well me getting the pipe lit properly for him (only using a bic mind you) after telling him to slow down because he wanted to smoke it like it was a cigarette. It just reminded me how much i actually did enjoy smoking my pipes so that friday i went into a local pipe and cigar shop and bought a tin of moontance and fired it up. Since then i went and bought a tin of cult blood red moon and today i bought a dr grabow pipe along with a pouch of middletons cherry blend (i mean if your going to break in a drugstore pipe best do it with drug store baccy right?). So i guess you can say a friend has brought me back to it in a roundabout way.
