    Howdy guys and dolls!

    I’ve lurked this site for a long time. Decided to finally join.

    Began smoking pipes around the middle of April of ‘07, after much complaining from my wife about the way I smelled after enjoying a cigar.

    I soldiered through all the beginner woes: tongue bite, tamping, constant relighting - you name it.

    I’m glad I did, as I now have the metaphor/analogy/similar (whatever- lol) that cigars, as good as they are, are sirloin, and pipe tobacco the finest filet mignon!

    Anyway, hello and glad to be here

    Welcome from Michigan! I’ll probably have a cigar at some point, but love the pipe tobacco flavors much more.

    Welcome from the UK. I'm brand new to pipe smoking, but if anyone can explain, scientifically, why smoking a pipe has the effect on the smoker that it does, I'd love to hear it.

    Adding your two cents makes Forums a whole new "thing." This from a manic poster.

    Welcome, puff. Glad you joined up.

    I think it's all the moving parts involved. The combination of pipes that become familiar friends, favorite tobaccos that we can't wait to smoke each time and the gentle dose of nicotine over an extended period that ties it all together.

    Like the analogy, it’s interesting to try the wide array of blends available.

    Haven’t checked back in a bit, sorry.

    I’m a Tennessee boy of many generations, going back to settlers in the late 1700’s, after the Revolution. Most of my great greats were burley farmers, as it grows really well in Middle TN. I worked burley one summer back in the 80’s - hardest manual labor I’ve ever done. I’m glad I smoke it these days instead of topping, cutting, spiking, turning, loading, hanging... phwew.

    I put up hay in a barn one Summer in Illinois; never again, partly cause I am allergic to hay dust, and partly cause it's backbreaking work. And I am no longer 15.

    Far, far fewer steps growing and selling hay, corn or beans than in the tobacco trade!

    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.
