The good news is that I have slowed down, unless I get caught in deep thought and I tend to puff like I'm stoking a forge but I catch myself usually and it is becoming less commonplace. My problem is that I cant keep it lit and I think I may have some packing/lighting issues. I have to be pretty agressive to get enough fire to stay lit for any ammount of time and it ruins the case thus making the baccy taste like dookie. On relights I have the same problem even though I tamp firmly and try for a good circular motion with my fire. I use the 3 step method ( I think) to pack my bowl and if the draw is too hard I will repack. I dont have a problem with having to relight, I mean it doesnt hurt my pride or anything....not like its a grill or anything, its just the requirement of having to abuse my tobacco and the awful flavor (due to the abuse)....maybe Im just a weenie... either way, I feel that having to relight every 2 or 3 minutes is too often. I should probably mention that the first 25 - 50% burns decent.... Perhaps someone could break down proper packing and lighting for me?
