I was just a cigarette/cigar smoker for years, but always enjoyed the smell of a good tobacco.
I started making my own cigs, which in a roundabout way led me to piping.
I tried a couple different pipe tobacco blends mixed in with my cig tobacco.
They tasted pretty good so I tried them in a pipe. I've been a smoking a pipe for a couple years now.
I've learned a lot from a few forums & this site as well. Thanks for the help guys!
My favorites are mainly what I've tried & liked so far, I'm sure it will change as I go along.
I quit the cigs within a year of taking up the pipe. If you are looking to quit them as well, pipe on my friend!
