I am curious: how often do you smoke a pipe?

I always answer no at the Dr., insurance queries, etc.

I go through spells where I smoke 4 to 5 times a week and then it falls off to 1 or 2 times a week....but the rough average is 3 to 5 times per week...since I smoke outside, it is sometimes governed by the weather

I relax about every other day, so 3-5 times a week. I need to relax more!

Three to five bowls a day, more on weekends. Too much, probably.

Typically one to two bowls a day during the week now that I have a pipe smoking colleague to smoke and chat with.
A bit more on weekends for me as well.

I just brought a couple of Petes up to school so I could have a few more pipes in the rotation at work.

Between five and seven bowls per day. I used to smoke between seven and ten, but it was easier to smoke then.

I chose 1-2 a day, but it does vary. I usually smoke a bowl in the evenings on weekdays and a bit more on weekends. If I'm fishing I smoke more and I'll occasionally skip the evening pipe.

3-5 bowls per day

Bob,

You might need to ask about the size of bowls, too. For instance, if I'm smoking 3 to 5 or more bowls a day in my little pipes, and Goose is smoking the same number out of fishbowls....

I'm not voting because it varies widely depending on my schedule. I may go 2-3 per day or I may go 2-3 weeks between smoking.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

It is my understanding that unless one smokes a pipe, frequently & regularly, they will not develop "a palate." They will not develop tastes for tobaccos they like. They may like a bad tobacco and dislike what would otherwise have become very pleasant to them.

I have no idea how more than one person could simultaneously smoke a pipe. I suppose "they" could smoke a hookah to develop their tastes.

3-5 a week Rarely more, but sometimes more (redundancy). Sometimes will go a couple weeks without a pipe though.
