    Just curious as to who smokes tobacco from a pipe. An old friend in high school had a grandpa who smoked pipe tobacco at our games n u could smell it all the way in the outfield. Thought bout giving it a try but no experience with what tobaccoa r best as well as pipes.

    Also anyone ever tried nasal snuff. Found some in my college days, ozona raspberry some good stuff. Any others worth trying?

    Occasional pipe smoker and cigar smoker here. I don't usually bring it up since it's so politically incorrect these days.

    Of all the various ways to enjoy tabacco, smoking a pipe is my preferred option. A lot more choices in what to smoke, and much more economical compared to smoking cigars. There are a few drawbacks to smoking a pipe though:

    Steep learning curve. Takes most people 1 to 2 years to figure out the basics and not routinely burn their tongue. But once you get it, it's beautiful.

    Pipe acquistion disorder (PAD). There is never a reason not to buy another pipe, assuming the money is available. Just to give you a "small" idea on how many kinds of pipes are available for purchase https://www.smokingpipes.com and that's just one site.

    Tobacco aquistion disorder (TAD). There are literally thousands of different pipe blends to try (see above link), although the FDA is currently trying to reduce that number drastically. Also most pipe blends improve with age when sealed in a tin/jar, so there is an incentive to cellar deep.

    This is my favorite forum for pipe smoking: http://pipesmagazine.com/forums

    A follow up with a couple final warnings. While pipe smoking might be the lowest risk way to use tobacco (some would say swedish snus is lower risk, but I dont know if there are any studies to prove that), it is not risk free. There is a higher risk of oral and larnageal cancer, although still much lower than dipping or cigar smoking. That risk is primarly based on frequency of use. A Google search will provide much more information on this and how to reduce risk.

    As mention in my last post, pipe smoking can get one trapped in a materialistic cycle of continual consumption (you can never have enough pipes or tins in the cellar). If you find yourself taken by the ritual, you need to have the temperance of eventually saying "enough". I find ocassional abstinence from forums and online vendors is necessary to keep things in perspective.

    One upside though, is that the delivery of nicotine is so slow, its difficult for most people to get addicted to needing a nic fix once the novelty wears off, as there is no instant gratification involved. I can go for months without smoking a pipe during the winter, as I only smoke outdoors, and the cold makes it too unpleasant to do otherwise. However some people are more susceptible to addiction than others, so unless you are using tobacco in a higher risk form, it might be best not to start.

    I'm a super casual pipe smoker. I haven't lit a bowl all summer cuz it's too damn hot to sit outside and enjoy it.
    I've only got a 3 pipes: 2 meerschaum, 1 briar churchwarden. Nothing fancy, I'm just cheap. One of the meerschaum is smaller and as such is my backwoods pipe for camping etc. No fancy names, the cw is made by Ropp. The other two are just cheap local shop buys.
    I've also got a few mason jars of tobacco, but I've only got two real favorites: Lane Limited 1-Q and a local shop's blend called Crowne Royal. The CR is like 1-Q, but just so much more flavorful and aromatic.

    My wife enjoys cigars/cigarillos, especially CAO Eileen's Dream or Moontrance.
    On cooler nights, we like light a small fire in the backyard pit and enjoy a smoke and some bourbon or local craft beer and just unwind.

    I guess I'm lucky that I'm not addicted to nicotine. Same can't be said about carbs and salty snacks, tho :( That shit kills more than even cigarettes.

    PAD is very real. My Boswell, Hackert, and Peterson pipe collection is a little large. LOL

    I also agree with what you wrote concering tobacco tin purchases. Tobacco prices will only go up, and the tinned or jared tobacco improves as it gets older. Buy as much as you can afford now!

    2 stanwell, 6 missouri meerschaum cobs (great dane x 2, legend x 2, general x 2) , 2 missouri meerschaum hardwoods (Favorite smoker is my $5.00 ozark hardwood pipe), 1 Mr. Brog amigo pearwood, 1 mr brog pearwood army, 1 savinelli, 1 Dr. Grabow Omega, and 3 "made in china, lord knows what wood, take camping and smoke while I drink until I burn through them" pipes. All of my favorite pipes combined, total under $100. I still want more.

    I love getting the missouri meerschaum 7 day smokeable seconds, stain and refinish them nice, burr out where I need, make it look nicer than a first rate MM corn cob and give that and a few ounces of tobacco to a friend that always talks about how nice my pipe smells. One of these days, I'm going to keep one of them. My inlaws had a cherry tree cut down in their yard this year. I took a huge chunk to dry out and I'm going to attempt lathing out a few pipes in a few years once the wood is dried out.

    I like everything about pipes.

    smoke about 4 ounces a month, buy an average of about 1lb a month (bulk averaged out btwn orders). order from Cup O'Joes or Pipes and Cigar in bulk. I like Cup O' Joes better, as they feel more mom and pop.
    I'll continue to by more tobacco than I smoke because eventually, I know, pipe tobacco will be harder and harder to get. Tobacco Taxes keep making things harder and harder. I have to stop by boswell's at some time. I camp for 10+ days a year not too far from Chambersburg and always forget to stop in.

    Favorite tobacco is 7 seas black with blending latakia sprinkled in. Followed by Stokkebye b and B, with blending latakia sprinkled in, with PS proper english in a close third for everyday smoking. my break from the usual favorites are C/D Super Balkan and Match 965. Favorite Camping mix is prince albert mixed with kentucky dark fired, in a large corn cob during the day and prince albert mixed with a cigar leaf in my chinese pipes at night (lots of drinking and speed piping)

    My, I want girls in yoga pants with daddy issues to talk to me favorite, is Lane 1-q mixed with 7 seas black, and a sprinkle of latakia. Just kidding. Sort of.

    My favorite thing to do is load up my both of my Missouri Meerschaum generals and my Mr. Brog Amigo (all over 1 hour smokers) with a nice virgina flake with a little latakia and hit the trails on a saturday (always pre-load my pipes before I leave: packing and driving is no fun).
