Don't laugh. But I bought my first tobacco blend from the local…"

I have a little bit of a bowl of Five Brothers (a shag-cut burley with little-no topping) that I forgot I hadn't…"
"It takes a lot of frequent practice for the techniques to become second nature. Over time, you'll find what works for you. Fortunately, smoking is a very enjoyable activity, so it's not a chore to "practice"!

If you're smoking a cigar properly, there's not much more of a health risk than with a pipe. As I don't generally smoke cigars, I haven't…"
Hey all. I'm active on another pipesmoking discussion forum, and have been active on a couple in the past.
