No worries, I'm a huge SW geek myself, as is my daughter. I corrupted her at a young age.

I probably could have handled the new movie better if they'd found someone that could act to play Anakin, or if he hadn't been such a whiny b*tch. Luke was bad enough fer cryin out loud.

Welcome to BoB, brother Vercer!!! I'm in the Volunteer State... opposite end from NC.

At 50 years old, I have been a cigarette smoker for a long, long time! And, I've decided to convert to a pipe. Knowing that you too were a cigarette smoker, my curiosity is aroused. If I may, how heavy of a cig smoker were you... how many a day? How are you dealing with the habitual craving to light up a cig??

I'm just curious. I still find myself lighting up a cigarette fairly often during the day. But, I'm smoking a lot less cancer sticks than I was when I started... thanks to my pipes!!

Speaking of pipes... if you want to try out a Peterson or any other quality pipe, check out Ebay's estate pipes. They can usually be had for a fraction of what the new ones go for. And, if it happens to be that you get one that you don't care for, you might have a decent chance of getting a good portion of your money back by selling it on Ebay!

Good luck!! And, again... welcome!!!

Robert

Thanks Beebiz, I smoked cigarettes for almost 17 years. Honestly I don't miss them at all unless I'm somewhere that I can't smoke a pipe (my folks house for instance). Then I'll generally bum one off whoever is around.

I smoked around a pack to a pack (no drinking) to a pack and a half (if drinking) a day and no run about 4-5 bowls a day. Don't miss the nicotine at all and am already finding I breathe much easier. The little one much prefers the pipe smell over the cigs too!

That's wonderful, Vercer!! Keep up the good work!

My beast is a bit larger and older... it's almost 40 years old... and for the last 20 to 25 years has bounced around the 2 to 3 packs a day size!! Add to that the fact that I have addictive and teetotaler tendencies, and my beast will take a while to kill or convert!!! But, kill or convert it I will!!!

I've got no little ones at home. But, my wife certainly loves the smell of the pipes... and, loathes the stench of a cigarette!

Good luck, my brother!!!

Welcome to the BoB, fellow pipester! This thread is an excellent example of how the Brothers tend to digress... but that's okay, as most of 'em are fairly harmless. This is a great site with awesome folks; stick around and have fun!
