I also smoke mainly in the evening. Sometimes one or two bowls, depending on what I feel like at that particular moment. Usually not the same blend, though. I'll mix it up if I smoke more than one bowl.
My day is so varied and I'm an omnivorous consumer of tobacco that each day may be totally different. When I want a (shudder) cig it's an all natural, additive free RYO using hand injector and filtered tubes. Or a cigar, perhaps an Artuero Fuente robustos. Or a pipe, maybe a Balkan or PA. And when working in the yard, perhaps a chew of home grown tobacco. Yeah, I love tobacco. :puff:
i have between 2-4 bowls a day i start my day of with petersons irish whiskey, and may even have that for my second as well, maybe some arcadian perique on occasion and at night i usually smoke a bowl or rich's old perth, typically out of my churchwarden. as i try more tobaccos and expand my collection of pipes that all may change.
I've always got through two ozs of pipe tobacco a week. I rarely sit and smoke through an entire bowl, unless I'm testing tobacco, in one go.
I usually load the first pipe of the day before I get up in the morning while I'm drinking my first pot of tea and nip outside for a smoke ( my wife has asthma so I don't smoke in the house ) and that pipe lasts me til lunchtime smoked off and on. Reload after lunch does me til dinner time and reload after dinner doe me til bedtime. At bedtime I load a half bowl and smoke it through.
Real creature of habit me - that's been my routine for as long as I can remember
Start the day with a pipe & pot coffee or tea, reading the forums. Smoke a second bowl after lunch, a third after dinner and every now and then, I'll smoke one late in the evening.
I rarely have more than one tin open at a time, usually GLPease Westminster. Smoking the last bowl from a tin GLP Odyssey I opened Monday right now, this afternoon it?ll be back to GLP ? WM for the next 2 or 3 weeks.
All of my smokes are outside while the dogs are out. Depending on if it is cold (below 20 degrees) or windy depends on how long I am out, or if I even smoke.
I usually smoke 2 or 3 bowls per day, typically 2 of the same, 1 different. As of late, I am smoking Captain Black in the morning and perhaps afternoon (getting rid of this pouch), and a Virginia in the evening (Rattray Hal O Wynd or SG FVF).

Up@ 330am, shower, dress, pot of coffee, maybe some cereal. I pack a bowl of Frog Morton in my smallest bent pipe, and head to work to load my milk truck. This usually takes 15-30 mins, and is a rather intense workout, since it is all done with a drag hook by hand. Sometimes upwards of 350 cases, dragging 6 at a time. Around 445, I'm ready to roll out towards my first stop, 35-40 mins away, and I light the bowl of FM, and prepare for the day.
Around 830am, I'm done delivering to all the schools in this particular county, and its another 35 minute drive to the next set of schools/county, so I pack up the straight Savinelli with some virginia, and head off down the road. Sometimes I eat a lunch before I smoke.
Then, depending on the day, or what time I get off, I'll have 1-3 bowls in the evening, all before 8pm, usually depending on how tired I am, or if I have any new pipes or tobaccos to try out.
The weekends I usually have a bowl when I wake up, almost always the Frog, sometimes a virginia. Then no more until the evening, and then almost always with a scotch. I swear, there may be no two substances on earth more suited to be together than pipe and scotch. I love it!
I pretty much smoke all day. Up in the AM with something mild with coffee, like PA or EMP. Smoke burley much of the day. In the late evening, finish off with a Lakeland tobacco, like Brown Bogie or 1792.
I usually only smoke in the afternoon/evening on weekdays: One bowl of Peterson Luxury Blend, Marlin Flake or University Flake while having my evening after dinner coffee. I don't finish the bowl in one sitting so it pretty much lasts me the whole evening. I am allowed smoking one bowl inside/day and my wife likes the smell of the Luxury Blend so it is usually that.
On weekends I have 2 bowls: Starting the day with Irish Flake (for the nicotine punch) or University Flake and in the evening as above.
