How many of you folks have only ever smoked a pipe? So never been a cigarette or cigar smoker, just picked up the pipe and that was it?

Yeah, thats me. Have tried cigars since, and have enjoyed them, just not as much as a pipe...

Unless you count the cigarette I stole from my grandparents when I was in like 5th grade and tried to take a puff of. Then the pipe was my first actual smoking experience. I have since tried cigars and also like them as well.

No, I'm not a pipe purest. Did cigarettes being naughty when real young, like six. Avoided smoking until college when it was just occasional Hav-a-Tampa cigars. Mostly non-smoking in the Navy, thus evading people who chain smoked bummed cigarettes. Did do pipes because I didn't want to imitate my dad or my professors.

If I could turn back the clock I would only be a pipe smoker. At 72 yrs old I'm set in my ways and enjoy all forms of legal tobacco use, but mostly smoke a pipe.

Honestly, the tobacco pipe was probably the LAST thing I tried smoking. Years of cigarettes, cigars, drugs of various kinds...
In fact, my initial experience with a corncob pipe was swiping one from a Walgreens (sorry Walgreens!) and smoking weed in it before an 8th grade field trip. In case you were curious, good ole' Missouri Meerschaum does fine in that regard as well.

I started with pipes, and it has been my mainstay for over 40 years. I have probably smoked about 20 cigars in all that time, and two cigarettes. Hated the cigarettes. I was lucky, and met a pipe guy early on and learned about good pipes and tobacco.

Skoal, Copenhagen, Camel Lights, Marlboro Lights, all kinds of cigars. Then the pipe....
Now, I smoke only the pipe. Usually, only at night after work and on the weekends more frequently .

Never smoked anything until I was about 45. I thought I might like to take up the cigar, and I ordered some online. I tried one, and probably only smoked 1/4 of it. It did not agree with me at all, and I threw the rest out.
But I still liked the smell of tobacco and the idea of occasional smoking, so I ordered a pipe and a tin of Peterson's Luxury Blend. Although my first couple of attempts to smoke it were disasters, I did like the smell and taste of the smoke and I kept up with it. Now, a few years later, I sort of know what I'm doing.

I have smoked cigarettes, chewed tobacco, sniffed snuff, cigars, and the pipe. The pipe and cigars is the only form I enjoy these days.

Never smoked tobacco, picked up a pipe at age 53, 4 years ago. Since that smoked 4 or 5 cigars (not my cup of tea)

Never smoked cigarettes; for many years smoked cigarillos or the occasional cigar when on holiday (aka vacation) or at Christmas but not on a regular basis. Took up pipe smoking 2 years ago. Still smoke the occasional cigar. :puffy:

I started out on cigs ... still smoke them on occasion, I may buy a pack or two a month. The pipe is something I smoke almost every day, if I have the time, struggling with cigarettes. I must admit though, they were my first and longest affair with tobacco. I also may smoke roughly a box of cigars per year, and maybe 10 packs of Garibaldis/Toscanos per year.
