I am a 37 year old (almost) dude who began smoking a pipe when I was around 27. I picked up the lifestyle because it was a “substitute” to some illicit activities that I was partaking in at that time, and that would’ve killed me had I not made a change! So I am an example of the pipe, and tobacco, SAVING a life. Contrary to the talking point that’s been told for many decades.
In addition to pipes & tobacco, I enjoy music, been playing guitar for around 25 years. Also drawing/painting, though I’m not any good at either, I still enjoy it.lol I’m unemployed at the moment, but am working on becoming an “entrepreneur”!
