    .....to everyone who kindly sent me a PM in the last few weeks that I have not forgotten you and will respond to each and every one when the time is right.

    I just need to get away from all things pipesmoking related for a period just so as to help take my mind off the subject as I go through my time of withdrawal since I gave up due to ill health.

    I'm using patches at the moment but I still get the occasional urge to spark up a bowl of my beloved #2015 but have thus far resisted.

    I'm sure you guys will understand.

    Regards,

    Jay.

    Keep fighting the good fight, Jay. I suspect you've faced longer odds than this and come out with all colours flying!

    Jay, if you're Jonesing for that old time pipe smoking feeling, just toss a tenner on the fire and enjoy the charring light and aroma ....

    It's not that different, right?

    But seriously, be well and happy and know that we are with you in spirit.

    Take good care, Jay, and come back when it's good for you..

    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.

    You gotta do what you gotta do. Hope to see you back one of these days, and if not, I wish you all the best.

    smoking comes first... wait... your health comes first... then smoking... or maybe family... I need to get my priorities in line.
    Take care of yourself. And, stay in touch. I've enjoyed interacting with you over all of these years.

    we'll smoke an extra bowl to make up for the difference. Hopefully that's a powerful medical technique.

    Best wishes, Jay! Smoking or not, you’re alway welcome to kibitz! Maybe even start a conversation with others who cannot partake of the weed, but still love their pipe collections.

    Take care of your health, first. We are always here for you.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.
