I’m in the US and haven’t seen another pipe smoker in the wild since my art school days when my painting professor would smoke his pipe outside during break. That was in 2005? 2006? And I didn't smoke back then.
I think it's smoking prohibited everywhere in UK now, right? I went to London a few years ago, didn't even dare to smoke while walking on the street. Especially crowded area like Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus area.
Well its a tropical island so the weathers not too bad & the beach is a minutes walk away ?
I know a few South Africans who fly back home fairly often and many will bring me a couple of packs of tobacco back from there, so that's where I mostly get it from ?
(& I drew a face on an empty tobacco tin to have someone to talk to... He's called Peterson
It's pretty strict in the UK, but you can still smoke on public streets (for now). The reason you don't smoke in Oxford Cricus or Picadilly is because you'd have to be a complete lunatic and/or a tourist to ever want to go there. If you do go there, you will sure as hell need a smoke to get over it.I think it's smoking prohibited everywhere in UK now, right?

Out of interest, do you pay U.K prices for baccy or Spanish prices? And what’s wrong with Erinmore mixture?!?! ?If you think that's bad, I live in Gibraltar. Everyone here smokes cigarettes, but nobody smokes pipes, and the only pipe tobaccos available (albeit very cheaply) are Mac Baren Vanilla Cream, Scottish Mixture, Clan, St Bruno, and the dreaded Erinmore Mixture.
We pay about 7 pounds for 50 grams of pipe tobacco currently. I get most of mine shipped from Germany though, so I pay about 10 euros per 50 grams, depending on the brand.Out of interest, do you pay U.K prices for baccy or Spanish prices? And what’s wrong with Erinmore mixture?!?! ?
That’s less than half mainland U.K price. I suppose, if it was more expensive, you could just pop into Spain and buy it cheaper?We pay about 7 pounds for 50 grams of pipe tobacco currently. I get most of mine shipped from Germany though, so I pay about 10 euros per 50 grams, depending on the brand.
Also Erinmore mixture is foul. I think I am in the majority on this position. The flake on the other hand is quite nice, though a little strong.
I'm a pipe smoker who lives in Crowborough UK which is in the South East near Tunbridge Wells. Since I've been pipe smoking for a number of months I've noticed that I'm almost completely alone. There are tobacco shops all over the place but I've never seen one pipe smoker. I generally smoke either on the front step or on a local bench enjoying the sunshine so i wonder if most people are just enjoying their pipe in the comfort of their own home? Either way they must be out there because other wise the tobacco shops wouldn't be selling pipe tobacco.
Here in New Mexico we have alot of fires going on around us. They have signs on the road reading "don't throw cigarettes out your window help prevent wild fires. Yet they were started by controlled burns. Just another thing to blame on Tobacco which had nothing ti do with the fires. Go's to show the bias toward smokers of any kind.Sounds like in the U.S.. I think it's safe to say they are smoking at home to avoid all the anti-smoking harassment.
I guess I have to ask....did the little "Nose Picker" get a good sniff of the tobaccy and what was his reaction?Had a mother ask me if her kid could smell my tobacco once. It wasn’t even an aromatic.
This is where I should add that I am not crazy about kids to begin with.
