If a man smokes a pipe in the forest...

Much like the old question of a tree falling, if you smoke your pipe alone do you really "smoke" your pipe. The empiricist in me thinks this is a rather silly question, but the philosopher knows this to be a valid line of inquiry. While the image of a solitary smoker certainly applies to many of us, smoking alone is a valuable experience only to the smoker. Smoking in the company of others, whether a few good friends or in some other public space, conveys meaning beyond the internal.
******************************************************************

Yes, I smoke my pipe whether I'm alone or not. I puff on my pipe, I chew on my pipe stem, I smoke my pipe, simply put.

That's the way it is at Just for Him. Even the women who work there are smoking cigars.

8 months ago I switched back to a pipe and was the only one at the B&M. Then another said you smoke a pipe too? And he started to smoke his pipe in the lounge. The owner was like, hmmm been a while and lit up his pipe. Next thing I know there were 5 new pipe smokers. The owner started to bring in pipe tobacco the beginning of the year and started to add more pipes other then the local carver that he sold on consignment for the last 18 months.

I do 90% of my puffing solo, most of it in the woods behind my house, or on backpacking or canoe treks. With coffee in the morning, or other libation in the evening, it's a great way to watch the world wake up or go to rest.

When backpacking, I often think of that Robert Service Poem:

I have some friends, some honest friends,
and honest friends are few;
My pipe of briar, my open fire,
A book that's not too new.

If I’m smoking please somebody throw some water on me. Because i’m on fire. Now if my pipe is smoking I’m normally by myself.
