    I just spent the last four weeks trying to get the tastebuds in my mouth back in shape so I could taste my pipe smokes. Some of you have asked how long it takes to enjoy your pipe after you've had a cold or flu. There's no good answer. There's only the frustration that comes from trying to rush things. I've always been able to come back to normal inside of two weeks. This time it took four weeks! Four weeks!!

    Anyway, I was all the way back. I was enjoying my favorite hobby again. My mouth salivating at the very thought of pipe smoke. Then, I did something stupid. I used mouthwash because I had to go to town. I didn't think anything of it at the time. When I got home I fired up a big bowl of Penzance. I got no taste!? What the......!!! Then I remembered the mouthwash I used before I went to town. My anxiety level rose. I began to sweat profusely. My cure was to eat a half a box of Cheez-It's. I finally got my taste back and my level of anxiety is almost normal (that is what's normal for me) again.

    The lesson for me is this. I'll never use mouthwash again! If people can smell my breath they're standing too damn close to me!

    Be well.

    I am going through the same thing right now. Can't taste a damn thing through my pipe. I had just received some new cobs from walker & was dieing to fire one up. so I did too soon after this cold. It was like smoking air. Been smoking cigars lately instead, I seem to get a little more from them. It has been almost two weeks now & my taste buds are still screwed up. I think I'm going to go insane.nbg
