   I am Hoang. I just know about this group and subscribe it right away.
I have been smoking for a long time, but I just found the enjoyment of
pipe smoking. Here, I found this group.
   I really want make cigarette to my own taste. As a newcomer, I would like 
to ask if any of you could help me by pointing me to the right place to find
the techniques to make cigarette, tobacco blending, ... (books, brochure or
whatever is useful)

   Thanks in advance,


[ Welcome to the group, Hoang! Can anyone suggest a source of
information on rolling one's own? - S. ]

I've, err...well, I quit smoking. ;-)   I've got ulcer problems,
and while the pipe-smoking is psychologically relaxing, the tobacco
induces acid secretions that aren't very good for me.  So as much as
I've enjoyed it, I've given it up.  I've packed everything away in
case I want to take it up again in 5 or 10 years...but for now, it's
probably better for me to refrain from my favorite vice. ;-)

BTW, having gone through (1) quitting smoking and (2) cutting out caffeine,
I can say that (2) is *much* harder.  I still get headaches from not
having enough caffeine!

Thanks, and pleasant smoking!

[ Rich won't be getting this mail, of course, but it was a nice
letter, so I decided to put it in anyway. Perhaps one of our other
members could comment about pipe smoking, stomach trouble, and ways to
insure that the twain never meet? Hope we can hear from you again
someday, Rich! -S. ]

Re: A few pipeish notes

The holiday season has come, and for most of us has gone. Like some
lucky individuals, it left a few pipes in its wake...

While at the local Tinder Box, I bought a $1 special ("Imported Briar"
[as opposed to the domestic kind, which doesn't grow here anyway :-],
large router marks in an unsuccessful attempt to hide splits in the
grain). It's a small billiard shape, something I haven't posessed
before, and it's working out well. At the price, I don't care too
much... :-) While at a restaurant, I persuaded my friend Diane (an
inveterate cigarette smoker) to try a puff - reaction: "This is
_nice_!" Next trip to the pipe shop, I'll try to find another dollar
special for her too! My parents also got me a nice rough-surface
Peterson. I really like them - you can chomp down and not worry about
the stem too much.

Also, we got into the _Ephemeris_! (Although Tom spelled the mail
address slightly wrong, anyone with net experience should be able to
figure it out.) I'm _still_ waiting to get issue #2 of _The Compleat
Smoker_, and will write to the publisher before the postage goes up
again. Has anyone else heard from these people?

On the down side, it seems that two of my present roommates are moving
out, and at least one of the guys moving in seems to be an antismoker.
I've decided that next year I'm going to actively hunt for fellow pipe
smokers to dorm with. Any input from the Rutgers contingent would be
most welcome!

In the meantime, hope you enjoyed Christmas, preferably with the stump
of a pipe held tight in your teeth, and the smoke encircling your head
like a wreath... :-) Until next time,

					Smoke in peace,
					~\U Steve.
