    Well, this last week I've had a bad bout of PAD/TAD. First, it was the Dracula Peterson. Then it was an estate Savinelli Oscar 413KS. Then Pipesandcigars.com got me with the "Buy a Peterson get some tobacco for free" deal. Since I was already buying the McLelland's Christmas 2013, I also had my eye on a Peterson Donegal B10 ... so now I'm going to own one of those.

    The Dracula has came. The Sav is on its way ... now I have a box containing another Pete pipe, McLellands 2013 Christmas, some Erin Go Bragh and Pete Irish Flake soon to follow.

    I'm pretty sure I have beat my PAD, by giving into it fully. Luckily I have cash to spare and my birthday is just over a week away.

    I'd love to know what you think of the Erin Go Bragh.

    You're not alone! In the last month, approximately, I've acquired vast amounts of tobacco and at least a dozen pipes! I've GOT to slow down, WAY down!

    Me, I have Bradley and other friends who keep saying "go for it."

    Usually I don't.

    I found a Wilmer AAA for $85 recently. I waited too long. Then a few Sabinelli Straight Grains, unsmoked, that aren't made anymore. One of three left, haven't pulled the trigger. Now it's a pipe Reborn is selling that I salivate over.

    I can afford it. It's not the money. It's a personality flaw.

    Nonetheless, The Redhead and my friends still love me.

    I'll talk about the Erin Go Bragh in PAD/TAD Group Therapy. I think -think- that I have satisfied my PAD. That Pete Donegal B10 was calling me though. Fell in love with the shape and I don't have a rusticated pipe in my rotation anywhere.

    I have more than enough pipes now that I shouldn't NEED to buy another one ... unless it is a good deal, or a can't miss. SEE! There I go again!

    I give up: what the devil does PAD/TAD stand for? Oh, and Roth, if it's not the money, could you pass it along (in a brown paper bag) to my address, cash only please?

    There is no beauty without some strangeness in proportion.

    PAD = Pipe Acquisition Disorder.

    TAD = (pipe) Tobacco Acquisition Disorder.

    Both are euphemisms used to explain (or excuse) either as we pursue the internet being silly, searching for items to acquiesce our burning passion for this pipe or that tobacco.

    Oh, and Roth, if it's not the money, could you pass it along (in a brown paper bag) to my address, cash only please?

    Sorry Fred, w/o being rude, go beg at the altar of Peck

    OK, I know you're being facetious.

    That said, there's nothing wrong being on a budget as it were.

    More than once, I've seen this guy getting a great deal and that guy getting screwed, yet the latter guy having more money -- his bulb just dimmer.

    Most of the time it's all about how much effort one puts into it after putting the effort into what's important.

    And that's a fact.

    $500 for one pipe is just unreasonable for me. But, I sure could justify spending the same amount on a bunch of Petes and estates!

    I purchased a few briars off of ebay in the past week, with a couple auctions to close later today as well. nothing fancy, just some straight billiards from brands I didn't recognize.
    Additionally, I purchased several tins of tobacco, a pipe rack and a couple accessories from SP last night.
    I work overtime for the purpose of indulging my PAD/TAD
    I learned that I needed to have more briars in my rotation, to let the others rest.
    I could stop if I wanted to, I just don't want to...

    Congrats on your pickups cmdr!

    I'm pretty sure I have beat my PAD, by giving into it fully

    If I had a dime for every time I thought that - lol!

    If you ask me, PAD never goes away, it's just slumbers for a little bit.
