Been lurking here on and off for awhile, am on a few other pipe forums as well.
Been smoking a pipe for about 8-9 years now, and have to take a break from it *sigh*
Recently had spinal fusion surgery and followed that up with 2 pulmonary embolism's, something I would not wish on my worst enemy. I think it is quite possibly the most painful thing I have ever experienced, throw in the whole can't breathe thing and its decidedly not fun.
In any case I now get to spend 6 months on blood thinners so that means absolutely no smoking or drinking, so I get to live vicariously through you fine fellows (and build up my stash even more!)
Hope all are having good holidays, and looking forward to posting
