I Enjoy Smoking My Pipes.

I enjoy picking out which pipe to smoke, the act of smoking it, the room note left behind from a good tobacco.

Pipe smoking has its down sides. It takes a good amount of time to learn to do it right. (20 years, and I still don't think I have it down pat). There is all the little fiddly bits, like tools, cleaning items, a place to store them, cleaning up after yourself when you are done.

But there are the upsides. The feel of a warm pipe in your hands, the aforementioned 'room note' that lingers when you are done. Picking out just the right pipe to buy.  Things like that.

I started smoking pipe when I was 20 years old and I still smoke on and off after 22 years. I love the aroma and the warmth of a hot ob<x>ject in my hands, specially when out and about with my dog in cold winter evenings. My only gripe is the availability of tobacco. I used to smoke Captain Black (blue pouch) and it disappeared from shops, Amphora disappeared and even the most 'popular' brand, Erinmore Mixture can't be bought in Tesco any more. Just received a fresh tin of Peterson's Luxury Blend in the post yesterday. Yummy!
