Hey Josh, what is your favourite tobacco so far? I figured out my tastes in a way. I like stuff that is complex and has many ingredients like SPC Potlatch for example. I tried straight Virginias or straight burley and they just don't do it for me, too one dimensional.
It is a question of discipline but we wont get into that here. Just figure out how much you want to save each week then prioritise your spending. Sooner or later you will reach a point where buying a new pipe will not even be a consideration.
