People under 25 are not allowed to post here. You must be at least 50 like the rest of us old grumpy bastards. You also must have yellow stained fingers with long gross finger nails loaded with nicotine. Hair growing out of you ears and nose that are long enough to be braided are also a must. lol
There are plenty of young guys here, you will fit in very easily and remember us old guys have no memory so you can definitely mess with us. Welcome to the site young master.
19 almost 20 here. Tried pipe smoking out when I was 16, with a grabow omega I still have, and Prince Albert. I came to this forum because I saw that this is the most knowledgable group around. I stay away from reddit because of hipsters.
I'm not. But I was. (Counts for something, doesn't it?)
Pull up a chair and don't feel so rare -- you look at least 26 with that briar hanging from your jaw.
(Started smoking pipe at 10. And PS: I was a teacher for 24 years. Some of my last students are mid 20's -- and they not only smoke with me, but have taught me a few things. Educated little smokers are teaching their teacher!)
I'll be 19 in a week and a half. I'm fairly new to pipe smoking as I didn't start until I turned 18. This forum is an awesome place for younger folks. Many of the posters here have been smoking pipes for 20+ years and are great sources of advice and guidance. Mentorship is extremely important for any art form and I find pipe smoking to be very much like art. The huge variety of pipes, styles, and tobaccos allows for a wealth of possible combinations and the folks here are a great guide to finding the perfect smoke!
