    Not inhaling of course... Since the smoke is only in the mouth I don't see a problem necessarily. Do you think there is?

    Please discourse.

    No. It's not good to smoke when you are suffering from a sore throat or sinus problem.
    It just doesn't taste or smell the same.

    I am glad we have a good admin and responsible moderators.

    Sometimes, sometimes not, if I’m sick and can’t taste anything then there’s not much point to it.

    If I can taste and smell it, I will. Sometimes a cold will numb all senses of taste and smell and at that point, I'll lay it off for a while.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    I smoke everyday regardless. I will French inhale a cherry blend to sooth a sore throat though.

    Would you teach me that French inhale?

    I have a sore throat right now, it would be nice.

    Let the smoke slowly flow out of your mouth and inhale through your nose.

    Just don't make a habit of it and only do it for the sore throat. Any other time when not having a sore throat I just retrohale.

    Sure, if I want a bowl, I smoke a bowl. Sometimes my physical condition precludes the desire. Inhaling or not you are still pushing oxygen out of the blood and so, retarding the healing of any ailment. And, I don't doubt that some find certain blends to be soothing.

    I abstain while anything with my sinuses is off. I've been with running nose for a few weeks now and have not smoked at all.

    I prefer not to, if it's an acute problem. Sometimes it's caused by pipe smoking itself: latakia is just inimical to my throat.

    I've a sinus problem too, but since that's cronic, I don't let it get in the way of my smoking. However, I try not to retrohale; alas, I end up doing so a few times, incidentally/accidentally.

    Not often. Pipe smoke constricts capillaries, the little blood vessels, and slows healing, so you could be setting yourself back. Depends on how you heal. If you're young and/or especially robust, you may be able to shrug off just about any bodily complaint, but I wouldn't push your luck. Corny, but true ... listen to your body.

    I will smoke my pipe over a dozen times a day, easy... but, as soon as my health is involved, like a cough or sore throat, I have no problem putting my pipe down. IMO, I would be pretty stupid to continue smoking through a weakness in health. But, as soon as I am felling better, it's back to burning...

    I never smoke when I'm feeling under the weather. I just don't enjoy it.

    Luckily, I haven't had a sore throat since I started 8-9 months ago. I won't smoke my pipe if I have a sore in my mouth. Recently I burnt the roof of my mouth on a hot slice of pizza...I didn't smoke until it healed.

    Knock on wood I have not had a sore throat in so long that I cannot remember the last time it happened. If I cannot smell or taste anything I don't smoke, it is just a waste of good tobacco.

    Nope, I don’t smoke if I have a sore throat or any other health issues.

    French inhale was a thing that we did with cigarettes back in the mid-80’s as young teens. It doesn’t seem possible to let the smoke out of your mouth (either by pushing it out or just letting it flow out) and draw it into your nose without inhaling everything that enters your nose into your lungs.

    Be careful, French inhaling could be just one step away from finding a partner and shotgunning!!! Now there’s a throwback...

    Depends on how bad it is. If eating and drinking hurt, then smoking isnt exactly a pleasure so I dont.^^

    Seems like an interesting mix of responses. For me, pipe smoking is all about the experience. If I am rushed, I won't. If I haven't dried the tobacco enough, I won't. Same goes for a sore throat or cold, if it can't be enjoyed why bother?

    Usually along with a sore throat I've got a stuffed up nose and can't taste a thing. So I don't smoke.

    Interesting. I had seen a friend over 20 years ago do something like this for a smoke trick he called 'the cascades'.
