"Perhaps already mentioned but the manliest thing, if there is such a thing, would be to have enough discipline to just stop smoking and not let it impact your life or social surroundings.  enjoy the company not the activity."

"The tea idea is pretty cool. I gave up alcohol this year (with the exception of a few hiccups) and I find I miss the collector's impulse I get in accumulating a nice selection of scotches or tequilas etc. Tea seems like something I could pick…"

"May I suggest target shooting? You could do a little William Tell with your friends' pipes and shot glasses. Downside is, if you are a bad shot- you'll need new friends."

"You've just inspired me to go out and buy some lollipops. Soon I may become the quirky eccentric sporting a sucker (<-- is that the typical American name for it?). "

"I like the whittling idea, although depending where this happens the shavings might be obnoxious. I had a group that would always play a low-key card game when we sat around.  Nothing very involved, just so that our hands were doing something…"

"I wrote an article about tea back when I was a reporter:  http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2007/mar/28/tea-overview/ The internet is very confusing, full of bad and conflicting info about tea, though there are some good materials out there. …"

"Not to depart from the original post topic, but you've intrigued me, Brad, and I'd like to get to know more about the world of tea.  How would you recommend I get my feet in the water?  Go out and start buying/trying teas;…"

"Excellent response, exactly what i had in mind when i recommended it to him. Tea is a quite manly pursuit with a rich history as you pointed out, and like any manly hobby it has more to do with how you aproach the hobby then with how society views…"

"I also suggest tea.  I acquired the tea taste over here in Asia, where tea houses and tea drinking are a serious institution.  Lots of people, including me, spend 5 or 6 hours at a tea house, talking, snacking, playing cards or mah jong,…"

"Excellent reply, all those points are good ones. Although, the act of smoking a pipe is now considered eccentric. So if this fellow becomes eccentric himself, he will just fit in more with the group. I myself am a proud eccentric. The key thing to…"
