    I believed I suffered from PAD, but is now clear to me that I misdiagnosed myself and in fact suffered from PQD (Pipe Quest Disorder). Awhile back I picked up a beat up old Petersons xl307 and almost immediately it became my exclusive smoke. Prior to the Pete I had purchased straight, bent, short, long, singers, meer, Kirsten, etc…In retrospect I realize I was searching for MPP ( My Perfect Pipe). I humbly submit that PQD is sufficiently distinct from PAD and deserves to be recognized as such. By definition PQD has a goal or purpose, whereas PAD is analogous to a crow collecting shiny things with no purpose or intent. Now that the constant inner struggle between false PAD and TAD has ended, I am at peace. I have been freed to pursue TAD without conflict….hmmmm I wonder if I suffer from TQD? I need therapy.

    One always leads to the other. PAD leads to PQD which leads to TAD which leads to PAD which leads to..........

    No you don't, a therapy session weekly would cost significantly more than a new tin of tobacco every week, even with good insurance!

    Yep...I'm done. I do have a meer lined kwood. It is a great pipe but pales in comparison to the Pete. Also picked up a shiny white kaywood a while back...stipped it down. Its a beaut now!
