    Do you have a preference as to which tobacco you smoke depending on the time of day it is or is there a point where you say thats enough and switch to maybe something stronger.
    Personally I like to smoke three or four a day gradually increasing the strengh, as I am a huge fan of G L Pease Chelsea morning is a must then Westminster and to round of my day Quiet Nights.

    If I do smoke more than one pipe a day I start of with a lighter blend in the morning and progressively smoke stronger tobaccos :)

    I usually go for CH at all three of those times. I am a fan of the AM Pipe, and it really is nice in the morning with coffee.

    I have a very stout blend in the early morning, lately it's been GH Dark Flake Unscented - but it could be a Virginia/Perique, Latakia, or straight Virginia blend in the morning, whatever strikes my fancy. My second bowl of the day is always a stout English.

    I smoke whatever I'm in the mood for at the time. About 90% of the blends that I keep on hand are full flavored blends so that is usually what I smoke. I like something mild from time to time but only when the mood strikes me. In my case, it has nothing to do with the time of day.

    My wife finds it strange that I can eat chili for breakfast but to me, it's just plain good anytime as long as I'm in the mood for it. A good stout smoke first thing in the morning can be a great way to start the day. So can a pleasantly mild blend. It just depends on my mood at the time.

    I start my day with some 7 Seas black and then i take my Leftover tin to work and smoke that through out the day. My left over tin is anything that does not fill a bowl goes in the tin. As im at work i dont bring my good blends most days. Then when i get home i almost always have a bowl of FMC and relax for the day.

    This is what I usually do, although I sometimes break this "rule"...

    I used to start the day with an English blend. I always felt it went best with my coffee. Some days it was a Burley blend.

    I smoke mostly strong dark flakes/ropes/dry cigars or medium latakia blends. They get smoked whenever.

    Sometimes I like a nice aromatic at the end of the evening or when with mixed company. I rarely smoke an aro in the morning or as a first pipe of the day.

    My mornings start with either CH or SWR and coffee unless I need a stronger Vitamin "N" fix which is not often. The rest of the day when at work, it is usually an OTC of some sort. At night it is usually a VA based blend with a little latakia (Boswell's Bear Blend) or a straight VA #5100 that I can smoke slowly and savor. On the weekend anything goes especially if I have some samples to experiment with.

    My morning starts with coffee and a vanilla blend in a MM hardwood and then progresses to whatever strikes me as good during the day. However, the last bowl of the day always comes back to a Dr.G with a light English blend.

    I usually don't have my first pipe until just after lunch, which is usually a bowl of Dunhill Flake, then after dinner I'll partake of a bowl of Mac Baren Navy Flake. It's getting cold here in Tennessee, so my after-dinner smoke will likely change to Northwoods or some other English blend soon.

    I usually smoke whatever strikes me as I look over my small cellar. Smoke that all day.

    I usually start with an OTC burley, or light English first thing (EMP this morning) then go to a VA flake through the afternoon, and end with something pretty strong at night (Nightcap most often). I may throw in an aromatic like MacB Vanilla Cream flake if I'm going to be socializing. There are also all sorts of exceptions to this pattern if I'm in the mood for something different.

    SWR in the morning 95 % of the time . The rest of the day depends on the mood
