So I was getting pretty irritated cause for 2 1/2 months I been smoking a pipe and for 2 of em I knew there was something I just wasn't getting. I read, I watched videos, hell I even laid awake at night thinking about it and finally I caught a glimpse of it last night and was able to duplicate it again tonight. I managed to get 10 minutes or more without heating the pipe up. I know I ain't there yet but I feel like I ain't pushing on a door that says pull anymore. Just wanted to share my happiness with everyone, and thank you all for helping me get there.
