    Some days when I am working in my shop, I lay out 4 or so pipes and smoke one after another with each a different blend as I work on projects. Does anyone other than Jim, smoke multiple different pipes and different blends all at one sitting?

    Yep...I will typically lay out what I feel like smoking during the day when at work and will prepare my pipes ahead of time, having usually 3 or so ready to go. I might not get a chance to smoke them all in one sitting straight, unless I too am at home in the garage working on something. As soon as I'm done with one, it's pulled out of my maw, another one replaces it and lit while I dump and scrape the previous and onward my working goes.

    I set a workbench all day also. My minimum pipe consumption is 12, going as high as 16 or 18. I wouldn't call it binging, and I do it all of the time, so it is just par for me.

    When I got restarted in pipe smoking about ten years ago (delinquent from the late '60s), i smoked a dozen bowls a day. Trying and testing out various new tins as they arrived. I learned that NIghtcap put me on the floor with my head spinning. I got seriously into English/Balkan blends, but still kept acquiring all manner of stuff suggested here.
    Including shopping with Pipestud, etc. for the rarities.

    Someone just posted recently, asking if members used the same pipe for their next bowl.

    A different blend in a different pipe is my way of utilizing my various (100) pipes and equal number of tobaccos in my pipe smoking life!

    Carry on.

    Binge sounds so negative. Yes.

    You refer to it as "binge smoking." I've always got something burning tobacco in my maw.

    I smoke aromatic in one pipe and non aros in a different pipe. I smoke a devil anse in my truck. I smoke 4 to 8 bowls a day in usually three different pipes.

    I rest my pipes for about 6 to 8 days.

    I’ve posted about this in the past but I’m a big proponent of smoking pipes this way. I rarely smoke just one pipe at a time, I usually smoke in tandem, two pipes, two blends and when I get the time I’ll load as many as 6 Pipes for one session, however, I like to alternate the pipes as I go, really makes the flavors POP when ya switch over to the next pipe. I even make note of great combinations that really work side by side, I love doing a good English in one pipe and a straight VA/VaPer in another, for some reason the Lat really helps bring out the flavors in the VA blends for me.

    I sometimes pack a couple at a time, but nothing I do could be described as binging. Glacial comes to mind.

    Yay. So I don’t have a problem?

    When I’m off work, I’ll typically start the day with 2 or 3 bowls back to back. Different blends, sometimes different pipes. I usually have 2 pipes loaded and ready to go throughout the day.

    Just added to my ever growing pipe collection so it’s time to start experimenting. Different blends in different pipes would mean 8 to 10 pipes a day. Sounds good to me!

    I do not. I typically take a break in-between bowls of at least a couple of hours or more.

    Between a month in and a year into resuming the pipe I binged. Many pipes different blends, same pipe, same blends, morning, noon and night, over a dozen bowls as day. A bit later I started smoking less and enjoying it more. Now between 4-7 a day. As always, mileage varies.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I do the opposite, go days or even longer periods when I don’t smoke because I’m just not in the mood.

    Most of my pipes, excluding freehands and commissions, range between group 3 and 4. It takes me at or around two hours to finish a bowl and I smoke the same pipe twice per day for a week before switching out.

    That's impressive. How many relights and pauses in the smoke?

    When I get to sit down, maybe 2-3 relights and pause just long enough to take a drink.

    If working, the same pipe will last through the drive to work, 10+ minutes, two 10 minute breaks and one 30 minute lunch break, then smoke the rest on the drive home.

    On the days that I can smoke on the job (outside job) I’ll load 4 pipes and two pouches sometimes three, one bowl of Latakia, this is my morning drive, two beaters and then something for the drive home. The beaters each get multiple bowls per day.

    I never have the time to binge. I usually can only squeeze maybe 2 bowls back to back on any given day. I’d love to have the time to “binge.”

    Binge would mean one smokes a lot occasionally when the opportunity presents itself, not your normal day to day smoking consumption. Thankfully, I do not have to binge smoke. I smoke a lot every day.

    When you are retired as I am...there is no such thing as binge smoking...I usually smoke about 6-8 bowls a day...that pretty much IS my day.

    I totally binge pipe occasionally. Often, on a day off after too many days working I'll smoke tree bowls and have a cigar in succession.

    I typically only smoke on days off and maybe 1-3 bowls on those days.

    It varies, but most often it is bowl after bowl

    Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop smoking my pipe

    I'll binge if I'm going to do a long road trip. I'll load up 3-5 in advance so I can switch out still keeping my mind/eyes on the road, then when we stop for food/gas I'll reload them. (Food more often; I can usually get about 500 miles out of a tank in the Sonata.)
