Once a day? Five times a day? once a week?
Once a day? Five times a day? once a week?
6+ a day
Well, it varies from 3-6 times/day with the usual being 3-4 times....
I try once a day, but that has been tough due to the cold weather recently
I average a good 3 a day.
When I'm on the road, really never, but when I'm at the house and in the office, probably one or two. I can go days without or days within, really depends on the mood, circumstance and how busy I am.
2-3 a day between cigars. I have the time.
Yeah the cold weather has made it tough for me as well. In fact its 5 degrees here in Iowa.... ugh... Havent had a pipe in a few days.
Two to three daily;
mid-morning. (almost everyday)
early evening (most every day)
very late evening (every day)
4 per week in the winter
Not enough, but like many, cold weather almost precludes me from ever getting a smoke in, but some rare nights (like tonight) I get out and have a pipe. In warmer months, I get 1 a day-ish.
Under 10 a day when I'm working( got all kinds of time with my job).
I'm lucky to get 1 a day when I'm home; and often its none.
once a day, all day long.
2 to 3
3-4 times a day.
3-4 times a day.
When I can, too cold past few days, even for me (about 10 out right now after wind chill). I miss 32-50 after windchill, my favourite temp range by far. It seems the second it drops below 32 my body goes from unaffected to. . . frozen.
1-2 times a day, about 5 days per week. I love unclearthur's post!
When I'm awake...
I like when I'm awake Fred. As a recent cigarette convert I tend to want to smoke a lot. But since you can't really have a "quick pipe" like you can a quick cigarette I have cut down from 20+ cigarettes a day to 8 to 10 pipes. I have to say that the Pipe I have in the morning on my way to work and the one I have on my way home are the best, I use to have to smoke several cigarettes, now one or sometimes 1 1/2 pipes will get me to work and that is smoking darn near continuously, just the way I like it.
During the winter I tend to smoke some more cigars since I'm not fishing as much, but I tend to smoke 1 to 2 a day. In the warmer months when I'm working more I smoke mainly pipes throughout the day.
I like at least one good smoke a day but not even that right now, it's 15 degrees outside and I'm not gonna do it. I do smoke a little more on the weekends or when the weather is nice. With 2 daughters in school (basketball and band), I really don't have the free time in the afternoons that I would like to have to smoke my pipes. Now that I'm unemployed, you would think I would have lots of time during the day but I find myself doing things for wifey and kids that keep me on the go (cooking, laundry, shopping, etc...) I really don't mind the sacrifice for my family. I have been blessed.
once a day, all day long.
When I'm awake...
5-6 bowls per day, more on weekends.
average around 6 bowls per day.....
my favorite pipe stays warm from coffee time to bed time.
Three times a day. The last bowl of the day being the most cherished.
Nearly all the time this week. I love the taste of good tobacco.
2 to 3 times a day
2-3 a day
At least 2 to 3 a day.
Here in the winter I'm probably averaging 1 every other day, although a morning bowl on my way to work is becoming the norm.
breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacktime, noon-tea, brunch, one-sies, dessert.....
I sort of look at it like' Pippin's response to Aragorn in Lord of the Rings, just replace the idea of 'food with 'pipe'.
"Aragorn: Gentlemen, we do not stop till nightfall.
Pippin: What about breakfast?
Aragorn: You've already had it.
Pippin: We've had one, yes. What about second breakfast?
[Aragorn turns and walks off in disgust]
Merry: I don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.
Pippin: What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn't he?
Merry: I wouldn't count on it."
This question comes up a lot. I'd say about 5 per day.
I average 4 per day. 5 if I take a late night wander outside.
I do have a question. Those of you that smoke multiple bowls a day, do you use the same pipe over and over, or which with each smoke?
Thats a great question and I wonder that as well!
If I am home I usually smoke more like 4 - 5 a day... If I am out and about it falls to 2 or 3! I have upped my consumption recently though!
As to jsharp's questions... If I am home I will grab a different pipe for every smoke, since I have plenty to choose from. But when I go out I only bring two pipes with me and I smoke one bowl out of each, if I decided to go for a third I smoke the pipe I smoked first that day!
Over the years, I've been fortunate to be able to acquire about
100 Pipes. I might smoke a Pipe twice in the same week. If I smoke
7 Pipes in a day, they will be 7 different Pipes.
I wonder at why some don't smoke a pipe due to cold? That's one of the reasons I started years ago while stationed in Korea.
I average 1-4 bowls a day depending on what I have going on. A nice relaxing day might see 4.
Probably about once a day but maybe 2-3 times on weekends.
Because I don't have to be outside in 10 degree weather? If I did, I would smoke outside in the cold...a lot. Though I do still have my fags no matter how cold it gets -- those don't take NEARLY as long heh heh.
If I could smoke in the house everything would be so much better --- I was once able to, but then one day my mum said no more several years back, then the dorms said no, then I moved back in with my mum because I hated the dorms but can't afford my own place -- then she moved in with her mother-in-law who has a rather large house and let me move in as well (because I still hate the dorms and am not willing to be as broke as it takes to have my own place) and once again. .. no smoking in the house.
What kills me is everyone I have ever lived with, even my roommate in the dorms, smoked. The only time it made sense to be told no smoking in the house was my father, who smoked as well -- but he did smoke in the house I just wasn't supposed to smoke at all heh heh. (I was like 12 at the time if I recall? been a -long- time since I've seen my father)
Everyday, 2-3 per day, on weekends, 3-5 per day.
I smoke 4 to 5 bowls a day and usually rotate two pipes sometimes three during the day. I never smoke two bowls in a row in the same pipe and I rack my smoked pipes for cleaning when there are about 10 that have been used.
To other men: I prefer large bowls and I smoke the entire bowl slowly. Do you all smoke your entire bowl or do you put it down midway and relight the same bowl at a later time in the day?
Work week - just one in the evening after dinner (sometimes 2 if I'm up late)
Weekends - Usually 2 - 4.
With regards to outdoor smoking, the wife and 2 daughters simply won't allow it in the house (despite my efforts to explain what I've learned about room notes...LOL).
We have a screened in back porch off the kitchen where I'm allowed to enjoy them; and being in Chicago that means it is still cold, but at least I have a comfy couch! This time off year especially I'd like nothing more than to smoke indoors by a crackling fire, in a comfy chair, with a book and my dog. However that would require swapping out the aforementioned wife and 2 daughters. I'm simply not willing to do that!
i keep around 5 in easy reach and switch around all day with many bowls a day.
trying to get my share before its outlawed.
Only just started but am getting in about 1 bowl every couple of days. Like a lot of people here though that varies depending on the weather.
The girlfriend is not too happy about the smell even though she smokes roll-ups. So i've ordered some Sweet Vanilla Honeydew in a hope to win her over in the room note department
Usually two to three times a week, though I'm still pretty much a newbie at this.
A couple of weeks ago I would of responded with "1-5 times a week". I re-discovered my short cob pipe, we're looking at 5-6 times daily. Full sized bowl I'll go with 3-5 times weekly. Good way to put the day to rest.
When I first responded to this thread, I guessed 5 or 6 bowls a day.
As it turns out, that's right on the mark; most days it's 2 in the morning, 1 or 2 in the afternoon and 2 in the evening.
And, yes, I smoke indoors.
My wife and I are empty-nesters and have a fairly large house, so I'm free to smoke in my den, living room and basement where my workshop is, just not in the bedroom or the kitchen. I'm a semi-retired pensioner so I only work part-time, about 20 to 25 hours most weeks.
My wife's a cig smoker who doesn't care for pipe smoke but she'll tolerate PA and CH. She objects to aromatics, heavy english blends and (for some reason) to Half & Half (one of my favorites). When I smoke any of those, it's in the basement or den.
Fortunately, PA remains my go-to baccy with CH firmly entrenched in 2nd place.
Actually, she is now so accustomed to the subtle room notes of PA and CH I can make frequent trips to the kitchen with a "live" bowl and she doesn't even notice.
I smoke between 4 and 8 bowls a day depending on whether I am in work or university. Also depends on the shifts I am working.
I rotate my pipes and if I am smoking when I am out I bring two pipes but only one type of tobacco.
In answer to the cold weather I smoke indoors as I have an understanding other half!
I am a 2-3 times a weeker.
To those that smoke multiples in one day:
Do you smoke the same blend all day? Swith with each bowl? Different pipe, different blend?
I've never smoked one blend all day but I have smoked two blends (1792 and P.A.), three times in a row in the same pipe, on two different occasions, with no problems. Note that I was using a Falcon pipe.
I would never attempted more than two bowls in a row with a traditional briar but I do often go back-to-back with the same briar & blend on the weekends.
I've never smoked a pipe twice in a row with different blends and doubt I every will.
I used to smoke maybe twice a month. Now I do it about 1-3 times a week. Although I will add that everytime I come to this website when I am not at work I get the urge to smoke a bowl.
I currently have 6 pipes on my little table besides my chair in my smokin' hole. I'll swap them up when I feel they need a rest. Right now I have a Caminetto, 2 churchwardens, two pokers, my TRG out and ready to pack. Currently smoking the Salisbury Poker.
Some days I'll smoke 6-8 bowls while reading posts. And, days like I've had over the last few... 2-3. It all depends. I tend to smoke more at night than during the day, but that I think is natural because of the relaxation level.
I will often smoke the same pipe all day, with an interruption of another pipe just for giggles.
Here's my Smokin' Hole for those newer guys who haven't seen it:
Nice setup, Lawrence.
What's that big fan thing on the right?
Varies, but I would say I average 4-5 pipes a day. I don't have a normal rotation. Usually will smoke the same pipe at least twice, maybe 3 times. I will then switch according to what tobak I want to smoke next. Larger bowl for English and smaller diameter for virginia or virg./Per. Small capacity bowl if I am smoking something really kick ass like Irish Flake.
Four sometimes five bowls usually rotating two pipes each day. I always switch blends from bowl to bowl but I stick with English/Balkans so my pipes are all interchangeable. I've tried VA's but never favored them. I'm finishing a tin of OGS and probably will not replace it. I've also had a tin of Marlin Flake and also never a second. I think there are certain things that appeal to a man and he tends to stick with it. Whether clothing, pipes, tobacco, cars, trucks or guns. We like what feels right in our hands,in our mouths over our skin and what propels our ass....and we don't f--k with what ain't broke. I guess it boils down to being creatures of habit. I do experiment, but, usually come back to the old familiar favorites.
I smoke 1 to 2 bowls a day. I usually never smoke the same pipe 2ce in the same day. I tend to smoke a pipe no more than 2 times a week. I like to let my pipes rest for at least a few days before smoking again.
Presently on weekdays it's only 1 bowl a day, late at night...because I can't smoke at work of course (wishing I was back several decades ago...what a pipe paradise, back in the fabled days of liberty and personal freedom).
On weekends I can usually get in at least 2 a day.
What's that big fan thing on the right?
The fan looking thing is a TV, I have since replaced it with a smallish flat screen.
If the game on the wall is what you are inquiring about; it is a "retired" Japanese Pachincko Pinball machine from Tokyo. Made in the late 40's. The War Department hates it when I play. It's just a tad on the noisy side... kinda like... well... a very noisy Pachincko Machine... It has a thousand or so small steel balls that bounce on brass pins and off of a bell, and when the machinery shifts the load of balls... It can get just a bit LOUD!
It depends on the time of year. While it's difficult enduring the harsh San Diego winter, I always smoke on the back patio or front porch and that's usually at the weekends. 2 - 3 bowls on a Saturday or Sunday, sometimes both. During the summer when the days are longer I will light up a bowl after work as well.
I smoke on the back patio when I want to just relax. I smoke on the front porch when I want to annoy some of the neighbors
Yeah, since I've gotten my truck I've cut down to one a day, if that. Mostly because I have to move the truck the second I get out of my classes or I'll be fined or towed...no time to sit at the chess boards and smoke. PLUS Portland has been colder than usual this year, in addition to the usual rain.
I can't wait for summer, when I can again ride my bike to school and sit outside for hours at a time, comfortably smoking away.
Almost everyday, 3 to 6 bowls.
