New pipe smoker. In a previous life I was a cigarette smoker and "vaper", the latter helped me kick the former. After I had proved to myself that I was no longer addicted to the nicotine I eased into smoking for pleasure instead of need. This, of course, lead me to cigar smoking and the guilty pleasures it provided with Diesel and ACID being my go-to sticks. I have since pushed them aside and, after moving and finding my old Dr. Grabow, picked back up pipe smoking. Or I should say have taken it up with earnest since I don't consider a camping trip in my early 20's with a drug store pipe and a pouch of Prince Albert to be anything more than a "thing".

I'm just now branching out from the OTC brands of tobacco, with an eye on aromatics.

Nothing fancy here: a Grabow Grand Duke (my first), Big Ben Jumbo, Longchamp billiard and the obligatory handful of MM's.
