Do any of you smoke tobacco pipes? I recently took it up and have found it to be quite enjoyable.

I smoke both a pipe and cigars when my blood pressure allows me that is - which hasn't for a very long time Smile

Garcia Vega Crystals were my choice of cigars (don't really care for the Cubans) and a blend for my pipe tobacco.

I'm out of cigars but I still have 2 bags of pipe tobacco (one at home and one at work) that are waiting for my blood pressure to drop.
Oh, yes sir, I mean, I learned my lesson. I can honestly say that I'm a changed man. I'm no longer a danger to society. That's God's honest truth

I tried it on a very casual basis about 30 years ago. I did like the smell of the tobacco, but the affectation didn't last more than a few months.

I have vape pipe, which I got from a pal of mine who has a business selling them. I use it at the casino where they banned smoking but I don't really like it.

Yep they banned it everywhere more or less here in the UK.

I think it is the same in the USA. I have not seen them smoking for ages on the poker shows, apart from these Vape things.

The last time I was in Vegas was 2003, and last time in a U.S. casino was in 2007.

The air filtration in Vegas was an engineering marvel.

I like the smaller amount of tobacco in the pipe. And it's easier to store the tobacco and monitor humidity here in Arizona. I just put my tobacco in mason jars in a drawer and I'm done.

So, yes, I pretty much quit cigars a year or so ago. I still have a nice humidor from the 20s or 30s that we use for a table. haha.

Sorry to hear about your high blood pressure. Do you take medication for it?

Mine was creeping up, but I recently started a cholesterol medication that has helped it to drop.

Pipe smoking is a lot more about the ritual than cigar smoking, at least for me. Prepping the tobacco, packing the pipe, learning how to smoke the pipe, etc. All these contribute to the enjoyment.

Then there are the seemingly endless varieties of different blends.

I recently picked up some Orlik Golden Sliced and some Mac Baren Plumcake to try. The Orlik is a Virginia/Perique blend. It's very good and burns great. Haven't tried the Plumcake yet.

I think for me, pipe smoking is also about slowing down from the world for 20-60 minutes. Just sitting on my back porch with a pipe, chatting with my wife, the dogs running around, reading; whatever. It's very relaxing.

Thanks for the replies!

I smoke Cannabis, but not tobacco. I prefer the pipe. I have a nice glass one.

People with glass pipes shouldn’t get stoned.

My BP decided to spike 5 years ago and I've been on medication since. Before then it was never high.

A pipe or a cigar is a time consuming process which should never be rushed. If I don't have the time I don't smoke. That is what I hate about cigarettes. They are far to easy to smoke and get you hooked fast.

Real Cuban cigars are available here in Kuwait, but they are packed so tight that it feels like I'm breathing through a coffee straw. I rather have a nice mellow Maduro.

Rubbing Alcohol will clean the resin off of glass. The trick is to add course salt and shake till clean.
