At Last a Pipe Smoker Empty
PostSubject: At Last a Pipe Smoker   At Last a Pipe Smoker EmptyTue Jun 28, 2016 5:05 pm

Gents,
I bought my first pipe 28 years and 3 months ago. Throughout this period I have remained a cigarette smoker, meaning to stop it and only smoke my pipes.
Beginning of January 2014 I had a really bad case of the flu that kept me in bed for over 3 days. I then managed to quit cigarettes and have never since then took even a drag out of a cig.
But I did compensate with Captain Black and Colts cigarillos often smoking a pack of 8 a day, making up for them darn ol' cigs.
Well, fu#$ me as the Missus would say. It's been over 3 weeks since I took a drag from these cigarillos I have only smoked my pipes.
I don't smoke for need of nicotine. I don't smoke a pipe because I have to, now. I smoke my pipe because I want to...What a difference! I don't have to choose my tobaccos because of their nicotine content either anymore but based on their taste profile.
Man that feels good. For all you guys meaning to quit cigs, don't give up and remain patient. If I, of anyone, managed to do it, boy you can.
Cheers mates and happy puffing!

Good job! I get so much enjoyment out of pipe smoking, can't imagine how good it feels to be done with the cigarettes.

This without a doubt, and congrats for putting down the coffin nails. I've known several folks who were lifelong ciggie addicts who were diagnosed with Emphysema and were on O2 for the last few years of their shortened life. In fact my very oldest friend is now on O2 with Emphysema. Sad outlook for him!


Cheers,

RR
