Last night was not a good night to smoke

Post by Bloodhound » Mon Apr 02, 2018 11:29 am

Everything I smoked last night tasted bitter and bad. I tried 3 different pipes and 4 different tobaccos...didn't matter what it was, it didn't taste good. I think it was a diet issue. I have been doing Atkins, no breads, no sugars, no potatos...but for Easter weekend I ignored Atkins and enjoyed the meals.

I don't remember ever having an issue as broad spread as the one last night...sometimes a tobacco or pipe aren't cutting it for me, I just move on to something else and its fine, but last night I ended up dumping the 4th bowl and just not smoking.

Meds can impact taste, also. I was on an antibiotic once that made my everything bitter and metallic.

When the Yucky Monster visits. Go into total lock down for 24 hours.

Then it’s coffee or hot tea with an old favorite.

If Yucky, another 24 hours are needed.

As DL suggested and after not using the DONZ for the day, I went out to the patio last night and enjoyed a bowl of Angler's Dream in a Turner Lovat. It was perfect! The "Yucky Monster" did not make an appearance. Things are back to normal, move along nothing to see here.

Aha! I've been on meds the past week and have not been enjoying my pipes the past couple times - especially yesterday. I think we're on to something here.

Without fail my evening pipe is always the very best one for me. I usually smoke from my store of McCl blends. The buzz from my libation also helps.
