If the world were perfect, then I would be able to smoke my pipes and pipe tobacco's as often as I would like and anywhere I would like. When I was younger I misguidedly thought the world was darn near perfect, and I did smoke when and where I wanted. Many folks did. The real world reality is of course different.
Yet, the reality of the world is that it is what it is. I am adjusting my behavior accordingly in many ways. And truth be told, so far all seems reasonably "ok". It is not what I would choose in my perfect world vision, but I am making the real world more "perfect" for me to live in. I try to do my work without angst to the best of my ability, I try to treat people kindly to the best of my ability, and now I am having pipe tobacco indulgence be as close to worry-free "perfection as my mind can currently follow.
Today is my 7th day of my new pipe adventure. I went from 80 pipes in a week down to two purposeful pipes on Friday with my elderly father-in-law. I savored those two most meaningful pipes for me and eliminated the rest. It was not easy, but it was manageable. That was a 97.5% reduction, which is close to perfection in this imperfect world. For now that seems good. I shall endeavor to carry on in this way.
