Just placed my first online order for a new pipe and a couple other items. Granted, not a big order, very small actually ($10.00 for a bent MM CG, a 3in1 pipe tool and a replacement stem for my MM Pony Express), but with all the talk and dire warnings about PAD and TAD, I'm wondering if I shouldn't just call the Betty Ford clinic right now and have em book me a room.

It starts slowly, seemingly innocently, then BAM! You are in the throes of PAD and TAD, and then you start bombing, which is the most fulfilling part of this darned lifestyle.

Good idea, go on, pick up that phone and start dialling, be warned though, you've just got bit by the PAD monster, granted it was just a small nibble but that's how it all begins, face it, you're doomed. affraid

My PAD hit me like a guided missile. Got 17 pipes in 3 months. Now I'm in my experimental phase. Have a Nording Eriksen Keystone pipe and a Falcon on the way to do a comparison of the two. For me it really is an obsession not just a disorder. I think I might need that number for Betty Ford too.

Cheer up--it's not as bad as cannibalism or similar depravity, regardless of what friends, family, or neighbors may say.

Feazelle- Ill get you that number. obtw, check your pm, I sent you a message.

Ftrplt- My dog told me that the dark side had cookies.

It gets better. It really does. I started smoking a pipe in January, and now have at least 20 pipes and approx 20 lbs of baccy cellared up. I just got bit by the danged LAD - Lighter Acquisition Disorder. *Sigh* However, you will hit a plateau where you are happy with what you have, until you run into that awesome sale you can't pass up.

Just roll with the punches and justify it as a hedge against Big Government raising taxes on baccy. That excuse worked with my wife (as long as she doesn't read this post LOL)

I'm glad I'm broke, because my PAD would be out of control. As a new pipe smoker myself, it's easy for me to get caught up in the excitement ..."Oh SHINY!" is my go to phrase.

Hopefully in a few months and the dust settles I will start buying a pipe here and there, and hopefully my PAD will be under control. But for now, I'm happy with what I have.

Oh dear, another bites the dust! Don't know how to break the news to you old chap, but Betty Ford smoked a pipe too. [just made that up but it made me chuckle. Oh the simple things].

Welcome aboard matey. Properly, welcome aboard.
