Greetings from Florida!
I am very new to pipe smoking. A friend gave me a corn cob pipe he made about 2-3 months ago and I have given it a few tries, receiving a burned tongue each time. I am now doing some reading before making my first purchase of a pipe and some different tobacco.
I have been a cigar smoker for about 15 years and enjoy 1-2 per week. I usually wait until I can get together with a friend because that is more enjoyable for me. I am hoping that the pipe will be a little easier to smoke alone to relax with for shorter periods of time in the afternoon or evening.
I've learned a lot from the forums here and am looking forward to learning more.
