Always the worst, not only do I have to deal with the discomfort of being sick, I will mostly have to take a break on pipes for a while.

I'm just getting over a pretty nasty upper respiratory infection, and I took a break from smoking for a couple of days.
When I was smoking cigarettes (pre-2006), I would still smoke even while coughing up a lung.
The difference is, I miss my pipe, I was addicted to cigarettes.
Feel better Chaplick

Imay have understated things, I never take a break until im really sick, The dr says I have such a bad case of strep throat it may turn to scarlet fever even though he already gave me meds.
I feel horrible, and im missing my pipe already

That doesn't sound so good. A sore throat is the worse! Just get a lot of rest and drink

a lot of water for that throat! I don't think I could smoke with a throat like that. Well....Maybe! :puffy:

Take care of yourself bro! I wouldn't do anything to aggravate your illness. The sooner you get better, the sooner you can again enjoy your pipe. Get well soon! :puffy:

Keep an eye out for a red rash that feels like sandpaper & head straight to the Doc at the first sign.

I have been sick for over a week and haven't smoked in almost that long. In the past I know that it takes a long time for me to get over a cold and get the medicine out of my system. If I smoke too soon, it all tastes like crap anyways. Just my luck as I got a nice TAD order right before I got sick! :(

I wonder if you need to sterilize your pipes if you had strep, and continued to smoke? I throw away my tooth brush after strep/sinus infections to prevent becoming infected again.
