Re: Age Issues...Thanks
- Thanks for the overwhelming response to my
message. I have just a few things to add in light of the
wisdom you imparted to me. I have already extensively
researched pipe-smoking and had already made up my mind. I
knew of the cancer risks and I also knew that
statistically, pipe smokers live longer. I had already taken
into account the legal issues and the endangerment of
tobacconists. I would simply smoke in private and obtain
tobacco second-hand. I posted the message to see where
public opinion was. I've never considered smoking
anything besides pipes. Cigarettes revolt me and I don't
care for the smell of cigars. I love the aroma of pipe
tobacco and hold an aesthetic fondness for pipes. I never
thought of smoking to "look cool". My interest in pipes
is simply for their flavor and relaxation factor.
Once again, I thank you for all your responses and
hope this message helps you understand my interest in
- Thanks for the info. Ya know, for a medium it has a lot of flavor. I would have thought it was full strength. Makes me wonder what my reaction would have been towards the full strength? I like Latakia, but not to the point where it's all you can taste. I bought some C & D stuff, Odyssey - I think it's called, and I didn't care for it, but I used it as an inhancer for some blends I thought were lacking something and it was pretty good smoked that way.
