For you pipe smokers out there, do you consider your pipe smoking a hobby or habit? I do realize that there could be overlap between the two. For me even though I usually only get one bowl a day I consider mine a habit. I started smoking a pipe back in 2008 when I quit smoking cigarettes. I needed something to take the place of a cigarette with my morning coffee, my last hurdle to quitting. Now I don't feel right if I don't get at least one bowl in the morning. I also smoke a pipe for the nicotine, and smoke 5-6 bowls on my days off. I also smoke for pleasure since I really enjoy the pipe smoking experience. I don't really collect pipes, and for the most part a pipe to me is more of a tool to smoke my tobacco than something to be prized and coddled (although I do appreciate a fine pipe and do clean and take care of my pipes). So all in all I think mine is more out of habit than as a hobby.

I am habitually addicted to nicotine, and I make no excuses for it. That being said, pipes are the least efficient way for me to put nicotine into my body. For me, pipes are a hobby, cigars are a treat, and other forms of tobacco are nicotine delivery devices.
