    This darn cold is killing me. Can't sleep properly, can't taste anything and can't enjoy a smoke in the crisp, cold winter air on my balcony. Hopefully it'll be gone before Christmas. I have a couple of weeks off and was planning on enjoying my recent PAD binge by smoking up a storm, but haven't been able to smoke anything.

    /rant off

    If I were you, I would make a bet with someone that I could smoke a tub of M79. Since you cant taste anything, you would have no problem, thus winning the bet, and enabling you to spend the money on a pipe or something...

    Same here. I've been sick 14 days long . Worst flu ever...for 3 days now, it's so much better and i finally can start smoking again. I hope you feel better soon, so you're able to enjoy Christmas, at least to some extent. :wch:

    I hope you get better soon. As for the smoking, sometimes I go without smoking a pipe for weeks and I'm not sick. The beauty of the pipe it's not addictive for me and I smoke when I really feel like having one, thus making the whole experience more enjoyable :)

    Take two nurses and call me if you need help.
    It can't hurt.

    I am not addicted to the tobacco...but the process of pipe smoking. Sometimes, I'll just sit with a pipe in my mouth, unlit...

    Hope to see you get over it sooner rather than later! I put my pipe down for a while, and I think that I'll probably get a new one, since it's been sitting in the garage on the top of my fridge.

    I agree completely, I smoke a pipe when I'm in the mood to relax. Sometimes I go 1-2 weeks without smoking. In the past 2 weeks I have enjoyed maybe 3 bowls total. Of course with habits like mine, it means it will take me decades to color my pipes... lol

    Thats a drag , man . I hope you get better for Christmass . My wife and I will have a prayer for you today . I would do it myself but it only works if she does it also . Sometimes i think I'm half a Catholic and am a source for Gods amusement at times .. lol .. but the wife negates all that somehow :th1: ... ya gotta have a smoke on Christmass !
