Two bowls a week average. I'd like to smoke more but I prefer to smoke with friends if at all possible. For me, this is a social hobby. I like drinking with friends too. I tend to cut down in the winter tho since I don't have a three season porch.

115 views and less than 20 votes? Dudes, come on! I mean you don't have to vote. But if you don't, you can't complain about who the Presi...I mean you can't complain when I post a lengthy review of Condor Long Cut. :taco:
I didn’t vote because there wasn’t a good option. That’s a typical problem I have with voting. :lol:

I suspect you would think I should vote “I quit” because I haven’t smoked a pipe in a year or two. But I still own my pipes and a tobacco cellar with no intention of getting rid of it because I hope to incorporate it back into my routine eventually. I did smoke a cigar two months ago.
This is perhaps the closest voting option applicable-- exception being time ranges and cigars varying.

I usually smoke 2 bowls a day, maybe 3 to 4 on the weekends.

Had to quit 18 months ago because of my new job requirements. Will start up again if the policy changes or I retire, which ever comes first.
Sorry to hear that. Hopefully the policy changes.

Depends. Sometimes several bowls a day, other times I'll skip a week or even a month without firing one up. No rhyme nor reason and that doesn't bother me in the slightest.
I do enjoy a bowl sitting out on the porch on a rainy day/evening, and whilst out walking the pooch or 'round a campfire. Those times it just seems right. :pipe2:

Didn't smoke much at all this summer. Maybe once or twice per month. But, now that it's cooling off, it's ramping back up to at least once per day. With a day missing here and there. I voted weekly because that's probably about my average. It used to be twice a day when I smoked on my commute to and from work. Since I got a new car, I decided not to smoke in it so I've cut way down.

Honestly this is one reason i think I’ll keep buying old cars. I love my morning and evening smokes in the car.

Not the reason I buy old cars (only ones I can afford), but, I do love my pipe while driving especially so on the morning commute. So I get two bowls in the car, sometimes sneak one in on my walks to and from court, and, usually a bowl or two at home in the evening. Now that the weather is finally becoming pleasant here I will start taking a lunch break down in the park next to the office to enjoy my pipe too.

For the record the money part is the real reason I don’t have nice car. That and debt aversion! Does it bother you to smell like smoke at work?

I usually have an english blend in the morning so I like the lingering scent in my beard and quite frankly I don't care if anybody else does. Now on the ride home I have been known to have a virginian or a vaper and when I walk in my wife will remind me that I stink (and to be honest she is right).

Once my kids are out on their own, I intend to buy an antique pick-up to put around in. I'll smoke my pipe in that for sure. I have to entertain clients in my work car, otherwise i'd still smoke in it. I sure do miss my commute pipe smoking.

I smoke here and there. More lately than I used to but rarely more than a bowl a day if that. Depending on the bowl size I'll pick the remainder up the next day
