An update. I now have a good routine down and usually smoke 6 or 7 bowls a day.

Most of the time, I'm smoking light aromatics, or non-aromatics. Occasionally a light latakia blend. The days of lat bombs are over for me. I just don't like the taste of latakia that much anymore. Can't take Virginia either (scorches the heck out of my mouth) unless I use a charcoal filter.

The heat and humidity is already hitting Houston. I'm in the garage with my Vornado running on high. The portable AC will be running soon.

Being retired, I can smoke all day. And I do. I write a bit on my current novel, then smoke and maybe do some research, then write, then smoke. It's a good life. 🙂

Thanks for sharing your words. I feel the same concerning Latakia, just a pinch in the mixture is enough. I don´t imagine myself smoking pirate kake again.

I can imagine myself smoking Pirate Cake, Kieler Foerde, and similar delicacies in winter. The problem is that I live in a country where to find good pipe tobacco it´s turning into a nightmare. I was specting new supplies for this month, but there is nothing interesting at the tobacconist.

I haven´t see you for a long time here. Happy to see you again.

This winter I experienced an unusual craving for Latakia. The more I smoke Latakia, the more I discover new nuances. In February I discovered Turkish Latakia, when I tried Pesse Canoe Latakia Flake 40. Recently I read that there is just one company making Latakia in Cyprus. This company receives tobacco from Syria (Shek el Bint variety, the same used in Syrian Latakia. Mild flavor high nicotine) and smokes it in the cyprian way. I would like to know which blenders use this Cyprian Latakia made with Syrian tobacco.

Daily routine? Don’t have one. This hobby is still an adventure of discovery for me. So much so that I keep a journal. (ha, ha) Like GreyWoodie, I smoke at whim - what I want, when I want. But, my responsibilities often limit my whims 😐

My weekly average has grown from 1-3 bowls per week last summer when I started back up - to 5-10 bowls per week lately. Seldom smoke the same thing twice. My morning and mid-day smokes are 20-30 minute small bowls, evening smokes are 1 hour+ sipping smokes in medium/large bowls.

If it ever becomes a chore, I will stop, or only log new-to-me stuff. For now, it’s part of the fun 🤩

As many as I can! Time is my limiting factor. During a busy work day I might only get 1. Left to my own devices I will probably get 8 in. Most days fall somewhere in-between maybe 3-5. No set routine or blend plan, I just smoke what sounds good at the time.

These days usually 3-4. It used to be 7 - 8.

I'm 57 and retired. So I usually smoke a bowl after I get up but before I go hiking or to the gym.Then one after hiking or the gym. And one before bed. Sometimes a 4th around our "California sober" happy hour if the weather's nice

Very good thread!

When the weather is good: 4-5 bowls a week. I’m still learning tobaccos, so there is great variety in my choice currently. I do seem to love Peterson’s EMP if it’s a morning effort though. 

i only smoke when I can relax and enjoy it. I got into pipe smoking for that very reason; to simply shut myself off and relax.

 In the winter, I only smoke when lunting. 😀

Two bowls per day, at late hours between 10 pm and 2 am and always in the balcony of my house 'cause I'm not permitted to smoke indoors... Here in Medellin, Colombia the weather is pretty much stable all year round, for this reason this town is called "the town of the eternal spring"...
