Hi all, I'm about four weeks into my pipe journey and my experience wrt nicotine addiction is different to most other posters here, and I'm wondering why... Problem is, with the exception of erinmore flake every pipe tobacco I have tried has left me feeling light headed and irritable the next day. The flake is fine however, I have my one bowl a night and the next day I'm fine. The tobaccos that didn't work are amphora, mclellands drama and samsun. The amphora was first, I can tell right off that it was going to end badly, it tastes bright somehow, like ciggies. I imported the mclellands specifically because they were low in N but they were no better. So now I have a growing collection of barely used tobaccos that I can't use... Can't complain, I enjoy the flake and will be content with my daily pipe. It keeps me away from the cities which was the intent. It would have been nice though to experiment with different vaccines, seems like its half the fun I am an ex ciggie smoker (6 months cold), and I try not to inhale. I'm think it's more the tobaccos than the technique but who knows? I notice the flake is a mix of virginia and burley while the amph also has Kentucky and Oriental and the mclellands have Oriental and Turkish, maybe it's the type of tobacco? I guess buying some straight virginia and burley would putbthatbtheory to the test but the range in Oz is really poor, it would have to be imports and I'm reluctant to keep investing in stuff that I can't use... Any ideas???
