Yes, I enjoy smoking a pipe.

I have noticed that when I say this people's eyes often get wide and they think I am talking about smoking dope.
I think some people might assume this and never mention it. It's possible that I may have a reputation as being a dope smoker.

In my thoughts, maybe you are lucky that the yahoos assume you are only smoking dope. I'd almost feel more comfortable being known as a pot smoker than being some freak who smokes cigars and a pipe.

It is my well considered opinion that there are probably 20 or 30 people in this area who habitually abuse some form of illicit drugs for every one person who enjoys smoking high grade tobaccos.

I do NOT count the patrons of the hookah bar as being part of that group. It is a fad and a way to kill time, and not a long term passion, habit, and hobby.

You're right. A fellow who smokes tobacco in a pipe is quite the oddity. There are 3 of us on my dead end street. That's rare. I didn't know of any other pipe smokers in the city I lived in prior.
And my friend Tony will smoke a cigar right out in his front yard!

In my experience, many non smokers are much more tolerant of pipe smokers than cigar smokers.
I've heard many exclaim...they like the aroma from a pipe, but hate the "nasty smell" from cigars.

Not my opinion, theirs.

My wife, who fully supports my cigar smoking, had a fit when I got a pipe. She told me I looked liked an idiot with that thing hanging out my mouth.

This may be one of the reasons that I have smoked my pipe in well over a year.

For whatever reasons, I think a lot of people see a pipe as ridiculous.
