I have decided that it is not going to work at just 100% instantly quitting the pipe. It has caused me a lot of rancor. I am now thinking and have been formulating for the past two weeks or so, a way to "unlearn" pipe smoking. My goal is to simply work in reverse how I became a pipe smoker. In this effort, I am going to begin with restricting my pipe tobacco consumption to only 1 ounce a week. That is a significant decline from the four ounces a week I have been smoking. I will write more about it as I proceed. I am thinking I will start my one ounce per week starting on Friday.
