It is misleading, though, for them to emphasize the risk of a cancer which is so rare among pipe smokers. I think the health risk boils down to just doing what you do, those enjoyable habits be they good or bad which make up a person's lifestyle. If one is in the habit of doing something which isn't destroying their life, why give it a second thought?

I don't say this because I agree that our next day could be our last. No, first we'll work ourselves to near death, grow senile, run out of savings, whatever. That's more likely, and doesn't sound nearly as rosy as getting run over by a bus tomorrow. Given that probability and the fact that life's a bitch, it makes good sense to do what you enjoy. You won't die tomorrow, but you will have to drag ass into work.

Damn, Harlock, that's kinda sad.

Yeah, I caught a cold, followed by another cold, then the flu (102 temp), then yet another cold. If I'm lucky I might be able to smoke again in a week. It's been rough...

3 to 4 bowls a day during the week; 4 to 5 bowls a day on the weekend. I home-office most of the time, which facilitates matters. I also tend to smoke more in the cooler months, and less in the hotter months.

Since I started seriously smoking a pipe my overall stress has gone down an amazing amount. I find myself sitting quietly, almost in a meditative state, for a few hours out of my day, instead of a few moments or seconds. I think this will, in turn, lead to a much better quality of life and, dare I say it, a longer life.

Excellent point, CLVR. I also believe the relaxation factor could help your health in a very significative way. After all, first cause of deaths among the male population are heart attacks. On weekdays, I usually smoke after lunch at a park just accross my office. My work also improves in the afternoon after having smoked at noon.

But also as Harlock does, if I feel a little sick I stop smoking until my health is back to normal. There is no point in smoking pipe, if you are not at your best to enjoy it.

2-3 a day, little more on weekends. As far as health concerns, there are so many damn things that can kill you in this world, I am willing to take the chance with pipe tobacco.

A few bowls a day, although lately been fighting a respiratory infection, so my pipes are getting a serious rest.

More than four would be extremely rare. Even four is pretty uncommon. Always a day or even two each week when I have none. Two would probably be the peak of the bell curve.

Once a day, usually on Friday and Saturday. I find that if I smoke the day before I lecture, my vocal chords tighten a bit. Of course, this week (no classes after tomorrow night), I will probably enjoy a pipe every day!

I usually have at least one day a week that I don't get around to lighting up. On average I smoke one bowl on my lunch hour and one more after work. But there are plenty of days that I will smoke up to 6-7 bowls

2 pipes and 1 cigar on weekdays. Possibly more or less on the weekends, depending on what activities I'm participating in.

One cigar and one pipe per day; sometimes three, 2 and 1 or 1 and 2.

I envy you guys with the iron mouthes who can smoke n pipes a day! Mine simply won't tolerate that even if I succeed at smoking very slowly, at which I'm starting to improve.

I have a commute to work, so I typically have a pipe on my way home, however, seeing as the wife does not fully appreciate the leaf as much as I, I take a couple days off during the week (married life is not without compromise I love you ). The weekends are free game, I'll smoke any chance I get.

On my work days I smoke on my way to and from work. I work three 12 hour shifts a week. I don't always have the time to smoke a pipe on my days off (with a wife and three young kids it's hard to carve out time for myself.) Other than my work days, my pipe smoking is unpredictable.

I'm down to 1-3 per day because I can't smoke in the house due to my wife's COPD. When she was healthy and a cigarette smoker, I would often smoke 6-10 bowls a day. Smoking at work is not an option, either.

I smoke about 1-2 bowls a day during the work week mainly at night after my kids have gone to bed. Weekends are free game, however, and I will smoke whenever I can but still maybe 3-4 bowls on the outside.
