Apparently, federal guidelines for the ACA say that a smoker is someone who has used tobacco four or more times a week within the past 6 months. It's a pretty good week if I get a chance to smoke my pipes three times. I never do four, so I'm a nonsmoker. I mentioned this to a friend of mine who said, "Oh, So I wasn't lying on my insurance forms!"

Another non-smoker! I might get away with 4 bowls a month! 4 a week is unheard of for me (alas!)

I guess I'm safe either way. I don't lie to them any more than they lie to me, which gives me a lot of latitude.

Two or three bowls a day for me so I guess I don't qualify. :puffy:

I manage to get more than that in, but I feel ya. If I don't have time to sit still and enjoy a pipe at least once a week, I figure I'm doing something wrong. A couple of years ago, one of my new year's resolutions was to smoke more.

:lol:

It's rare that I get more than a couple of bowls in a week, so I'm technically still a "non-smoker".

Hmmm. Does that mean AVERAGE 4 smokes a week or 4 smokes every week? Good weeks for me is 7-8 pipes; bad weeks is no pipes. Guess that makes me a non-smoker as well!

Yay! I get to smoke 50% more now!

(My original estimates for staying out of the "smoker" category were two bowls a week, I'm glad we have some clarification on that, at least by American standards.)
