The Pipe-Smokers Thread.

Postby asthmatic camel » Sun Jul 08, 2018 5:04 am

Having become a gentleman of a certain age and having failed to quit smoking cigarettes despite numerous valiant attempts, I have decided to compromise and become a pipe-smoker. I feel it gives me a certain gravitas which I previously lacked. (Unlike Mrs. Camel, who feels that it makes me look a cunt.) What do you guys think?

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Though you must have a devil of a time cleaning it. Do you have Thai Lady-Boys to do that for you?

What methods have you tried in your quest to quit the smokes AC?
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

I've tried e-cigs, nicotine patches and lozenges, snuff, drinking myself senseless, putting on massive amounts of weight and becoming a grumpy cunt that nobody wants to talk to. My GP won't prescribe Champix/Zyban because I'm a certifiable, suicidal loony. :D

As has been noted elsewhere, I often believe that I am Gandalf. Which is useful because rather than Thai lady boys, I have a team of enthusiastic Hobbits who clean my pipe for me.

When I was young my dad used to smoke a corn cob pipe. A bit like Popeye.

Is pipe tobacco cheaper than cigarettes in England these days? I've heard they really tax the hell out of smokes these days.

Pipe tobacco costs roughly the same as hand-rolling tobacco, around £12 for a 30 gram pack. Ready made cigarettes, however, are horrendously expensive at around £12 per packet of twenty. I was smoking about three packs of rolling tobacco a week and smoke about half as much pipe tobacco.

So, I'm saving money and, as I don't inhale pipe smoke, causing less damage.

How old are you, about 80?
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray
