I would, of course, enjoy smoking a pipe right now. Yet, I am trying to teach myself another way. I am wanting to think of the pipe as something akin to drinking.... an occasional endeavor. This time during Lent will hopefully help me to shape that idea.... occasional use, not constant use, as the norm for me. It has a learning curve to be sure.
I do not drink alcohol every day. Hell, I typically have 2-3 drinks once every other week or so. I should be able to think about pipe tobacco in the same way. It is NOT something I should enjoy every day, nor all day long. It should be an occasional joy or indulgence.
