Guys, it's been driving me crazy- I've had a serious issue with pneumonia and major lung surgery that's dragged on for months...and resulted in absolutely no smoking and no pipe making due to the dust. I'm in the recovery mode now, returned to training on my indoor bike trainer, and back to maybe 85% lung function, so I figure a few more months until I'm back to normal. My son-in-law who is an occasional pipe smoker was over on Christmas day....so I promptly loaded him up a nice Dunhill pipe with 1Q and sat downwind out on the lanai for a few minutes.
1Q is a tobacco that I would never normally smoke, but man- when you've been pipe starved for months, the room note is a fabulous thing....:)

1Q is in my rotation, actually. I love it and it's a lot cheaper than MM's Great Dane (which is similar, but with deeper flavors); so I know what you mean...it's why I smoke it. Good to hear you're recovering well from something so major...

Glad you are feeling better, Zach. I'm sure the tobacco smelled good to the hungry soul.

Zack, I know its rough pal. But thankfully you are on the mend and will be all the better and can have that inaugural smoke soon enough.

It was way too much fun...Looks like another week on IV antibiotics and I'll declare myself cured....:)

Have you put any thought in to what that first smoke is going to be when you saddle back up?
I remember years back when a friend had his wisdom teeth pulled. An avid cigarette smoker, he wanted to avoid the chance at dry socket so he had me and others blow smoke in his face repeatedly.

Zack, good for you for taking care of yourself. You have to have air, so let the pipe smoke go for now. In the twenties, I think it was, the cigarette makers had one of the early jazzy ads to promote cigarette smoking among women, showing a woman hovering over a man smoking a cigarette, and the headline was, "Blow some smoke my way." Even more so with pipe smoke, people who have never, and will never, smoke a pipe comment on how good it smells. A good room note can be a good thing. Go slow with healing and get better right along.
