    I think we all can relate to this.

    Keep on puffin,

    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.

    That's scary....

    Southerners don't talk slow because they're dumb, we do it because there's really no rush.

    Yep

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    It would appear with pipe smoking that the real risk is not to health but to pocketbook...

    I've yet to fool myself.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    Ask the 'brush! It's not curable.

    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.

    It's important to remember not to utter those fatal words, no more pipes! Consider yourself in constant negotiation as an extremely picky pipe buyer. That gives you a sporting chance of passing on pipes that you notice but have not yet fallen in love with. As dreadful as the prospect is, consider culling the herd every few years (every ten years? Would you accept fifteen?) Of course, when you go looking for the pipes you no longer smoke, you try them all out. We know how that ends. Another pipe? I'm thinking about it.

    My last relapse was a Ben Wade straight billiard clencher, smooth with light stain, at my local independent pipe shop, after seeing it on a visit to buy a small order of bulk tobacco, appropriately Proper English. I was impelled both by the pipe, the price (the proprietor made the price tag to include tax), and my desire to support the shop at this difficult time in tobacco pipe history. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    I can't count the number of times I've said that but it never seem to work. My therapist said PAD is the worst form of OCD known and one with no known cure so I stopped going and recycled the money I usually paid her to my pipe acquisition fund, content to suffer this affliction for the remainder of my days.

    I am now broke. I have financially reached the 'no more pipes' place. I may be selling some soon to free up some cash to buy a different pipe.

    One way to postpone is to thoroughly clean all your pipes, every last one. The racks. The accessories.
