Bought my first pipe (Aldo Velani) when I was 19 years old or so...didn't know a darn thing about how to properly smoke it (truthfully, still learning!), though I still did so on occasion, albeit poorly. Picked it back up around May 2009, and found a rather relaxing new pastime.

Thanks to all of those who post reviews here, or add other helpful insights to make our pipe smoking experience all the more enjoyable.
