It's been one week since I've stopped smoking cigarettes and I've come into a pleasant surprise: The enjoyment I get from pipes and cigars has doubled, not because they still supply me with my nicotine, but because I'm no longer smoking pipes and cigars for their nicotine. Because of that the rate in which I enjoy a bowl or cigar has slowed, allowing me to relax and enjoy the characteristics of the individual tobaccos. Pipes and cigars are no longer a varied form to get my fix, they're a way for me to sit and introspect, sample the many blends and note their traits, and has breathed new life into my hobby. Just a little reassurance to those who may want to quit using cigarettes; once you shake the "gimme my fix" line of thought, pipes and cigars become a much more spiritual outlet of stress and form of enjoyment. Have a good one, all.
