    Given the erratic timing & frequency of my pipe time, I'd say 25-50g per week. But my most recent estate pipe showed up & was less of an Ashton and more Pipe-a-saurus Rex. I usually stick to smaller bowls, but this thing has it's own gravitational pull. So far I've lost a tin of Mac B' s HH Highland, 1/2 tin of Royal Tudor, & 3/4 tin of Black Ambrosia to it's clutches. So obviously, that average is going up.

    Anyone seen my dog?

    For me I'd have to guesstimate something a bit more than a pound a month. Now I buy two and a half pounds a month (give or take -- sometimes there are some tins included). I jar and work from storage. But, for over 10 years I had a "just in time" inventory approach -- with it arranged for a vendor to send a pound each month by subscription. Of course, about the third week I'd get concerned and call to have the next pound sent. :beck:

    I think I smoke a lot, but I really only smoke in the evenings, and then it's one bowl after another. I would say I go through an ounce to an ounce and a half of tobacco per week. In the grand scheme of things, this isn't very much at all. Just enough for my lifestyle.

    I smoke a bowl each evening if I'm lucky. Haven't been that lucky lately. Sinus problems are keeping me away.

    I'm around 1/2 an ounce a week during winter and 3/4 an ounce in spring fall and summer per a week

    I used to smoke mainly my larger pipes...now it's the regular sized ones. As a result, I go through far less tobacco each week.

    Apparently not much! So little that I pretty much have to respond in terms of bowls (sorry)... I average two to three bowls a week these days. I try to make time once a week to smoke one of my larger pipes, but usually I enjoy my XX or XXX Ashtons.

    I smoked a bit more than 50 grams this week but that's a lot for me, in Toronto I'll smoke at most 3 bowls a day.

    So, smoking indoors I'll smoke roughly 50 grams a week but if I'm only smoking indoors I'll smoke about 3 bowls a day, which is much less.

    I smoke probably 6 - 10 bowls per week, this tends to go up in the Winter since it's freezing outside.

    I'm with the OP on this one, an ounce to an ounce and a half per week. That's a couple of pipes a day on average and a far cry from the entire pack of cigarettes I smoked up until about ten months ago. I have always smoked a pipe at least once or twice a week but mostly cigarettes. Got to the point one day where I honestly just could not bring myself to smoke another cigarette and haven't since. That sudden and that complete, just done one day for good like that. Oddly I do not find I have replaced my cigarette habit with smoking a pipe more to fill the void. There is no void to fill. Smoking a pipe is a whole different ballgame and I am perfectly content with smoking once or twice a day, some days not at all.

    I'm still addicted to the stinky sticks but slowly winning (to explain my love of nicotine, and no I don't inhale with the pipe hence it's helping)
    This weekend just gone was great as I only had 1 cig each day and 6 pipes each day.
    This was in a MM Legend, MM Hardwood, my beater pipe that has a similar bowl size to the legend, a Meer' lined Morris that's slightly smaller bowled than the legend and both evenings rounded out with my Barling that's about 1.25 times the bowl of the legend. This would be perhaps 5 a day on work days when I can finally make it purely pipes.

    Going by Jayson's scaling and saying 5 on work days and 6 on weekends, that puts me at about 7.5g work days and about 9g on days off so my normal weekly gram-age would be around 55g.....it sounds a little bad now I'm adding it up.

    FWIW, the pipe smoking competitions usually give you 3 g of tobacco and a cob. 3 g a bowl seems to correspond to my reality. A 50 g tin should have about 16 or 17 bowls at this rate. I often have a bulk I am smoking as my regular smoke, and I will have one bowl a day of something like Presbyterian Mixture. That tin will last me two weeks - maybe a little more.

    Using 3 g a bowl, 6 oz of tobacco a week is about 8 bowls a day. Does that sound about right UncleVint?

    I am going through around 100-150grms per week still haven't figured out how many bowls a day that is. does anybody have any ideas I am smoking a falcon pipe and yesterday I just got a Peterson dongle pipe though it has a smallish bowl on it compared to the falcon

    I am right at 4-6 oz per week depending on travel. I have gone through 8 oz in a week on long travel weeks. Smoking in my truck is the best way to pass the miles.

    FWIW, I got a .1 g scale. It seemed like a nice thing to have, and so I decided to test this. I weighed a Peterson African meer Dublin empty and then after loading it with some rubbed out Wessex Gold Brick. It was 3.4 g of tobacco.
