Smoked a tobacco pipe, on and off infrequently since about 1990( Although I did make homemade pipes from bits of wood as young as 10 yrs old and smoked tea in them!!!)

I never really understood or appreciated what pipe smoking was about until I gave up smoking cigarettes in2003.

Pipe smoking is the only way for me to totally relax and escape from the stresses of the modern world.

My mum gave me my first pipe for my 19th birthday, in 1989. It was the Falcon international with a rustic bulldog bowl which I still have and keep at work, so use almost daily.

Bensons & hedges straight, apple bowl gold colour mount, was my grandfathers.

Rustic reject straight, was my grand fathers.

Ducan nubent rustic, was my Fathers.
