What's happening to me....

Guys, I'm not well. I'm out of control.

Last night, I went bonkers and ordered another 7 tins of baccy. Along with a two place pipe ashtray with cork knocker (that's tough to say without mispronouncing cork, btw) and a MM Mark Twain Cob.


I don't think I mentioned it, but I have an estate pipe that's as old as me coming in tomorrow.



I, currently, have three pipes on hand, with two more in the pipeline (pun intentional) to bring me up to 5 in the rotation. While this doesn't sound like much, consider that my first bowl was on 4-18. That's only 21 days into this!!!!




I would blame you guys, but this is all on me (and my credit card).

I don't know what I don't know.

You mentioned not being well and I was concerned but after reading your post I find everything to be right on track. Started 7 months ago and have a large wine cooler full of tobacco, and started buying expensive pipes for no reason. You won't find a better set of enablers than here.

I merely want to point out, that with only 5 pipes you still need 2 more to complete the"pipe for each day of the week" rotation.

I also want to point out that orders over I 100 I think ship free from smoking pipes and p&c.. so cleaners, pipe tools, and baccy you haven't tried always help to round things out.


Wait, I think I misunderstood... You were looking for deterrent, not more enabling? I should really pay more attention.

At the risk of enabling, estate pipes, wisely chosen, are a very good deal. They're automatically less (often much less) than half the cost of the pipe new. Most of the reputable web sites offer good pipes. I've never tried eBay.

Personally, I think you’re showing a remarkable amount of restraint!
Fleabay is a mine field anymore, there are still a few trustworthy vendors and it’s still possible to get a ‘deal’ they’re just harder to find. Make sure and do your research before diving into the deep end of the bay.

I'm a sucker for free shipping, and find it way too easy to flip that switch.

I don't know what I don't know.

I'm not a big fan of the bay. I've had an account forever, and probably have less than a dozen purchases.
