I've tried drinking lots of water, taking simeticone, dramamine, ondansetron, and only dramamine seems to work. And yet this seems to happen from time to time.
But I don't want to keep taking tons of medications to continue smoking my pipe.
Any "natural" suggestions?
(I don't inhale anymore)

How long ago did you stop inhaling? That is a big part of it, I bet. Otherwise you have tobacco's that are too high in the nicotine department would be my other guess.

I stopped inhaling 2 weeks ago.
My tobaccos are exclusively aromatics so I guess they are low on nicotine.

I would say you either aren't drinking water or are using blends that are too high in nicotine content for you. Since you've already covered that...maybe heat has a part to play? I too wouldn't recommend taking medication must to smoke a pipe.

Make sure you have a full stomach well before starting too. Are you smoking a briar or cob or one of those questionable chicom Amazon numbers?

Funny that cigars didn't have all these issues... But I'm never coming back to them.
I like those little tweaks from pipes.

As said above nicotine lower your blood glucose which is what is giving you nausea. So 4 things to do are:

1. Use a lower nicotine blend,

2. Not inhaling (as much more nicotine is absorbed if you inhale),

3. Smoke with a full stomach and

4. At the first symptoms of nausea stop immediately puffing and eat a chocolate bar,

5. Do not take any medications.

Machado: I ask this with all due respect. Why are you so obsessed with smoking if it leaves you nauseated?

Also, I believe nicotine sensitivity wanes over time correct? I find myself able to tolerate stronger blends now as opposed to a year or so ago. Still get hammered by some blends but I know which blends do that to me and make sure I’ve eaten along with a cold beverage while smoking.
It does seem to affect me more so in the morning as I’m not much of a breakfast person. Coffee and a pipe are my first priority. I can usually feel the nicotine coming on and just set the pipe down for awhile if I need to. I do get occasional nausea but it’s short lived and I usually just ride it out. Not to mention I enjoy a moderate nicotine buzz anyway if it doesn’t go too far.

Are you taking time between puffs/sips? If you are already smoking slowly, this may not help, but if you are smoking too quickly it could be cutting short your oxygen intake and making the nausea worse for you.

It only happens sometimes. I enjoy smoking a lot so that's not really a reason for me to stop smoking.
I just want to prevent that from happening.
Those tips against nausea were nice.
