    In answer to your question, from what i've heard it seems that since pipe smokers are more concerned with flavour, and so proper pipe tobacco is the way to go. However i would imagine that normal rolling tobacco would be fine to use, just that you wouldn't achieve the same aromatic blend that pipe smokers come to expect (apparently ).

    And for gods sake leave the guy alone, its his choice to smoke, he shouldn't be chastised for it. Start a separate thread if you want to bash smokers, as if there aren't enough of them already.
    You, sir, are a fine man. Ta for the info.

    Well how are you qualified to respond? Only a complete blockead smokes a cigarette or a pipe (or more or less anything smokable for that matter) for the 'smell of the smoke'.

    More to the point, does anyone actually know the answer to my question ?
    not exactly sure but there is a fantastic tobacconist in covent garden that whenever I buy some tobacco asks me if i want cigarette or pipe tobacco...so i assume there is a diffence...i think you might be better off trying to get proper pipe tobacco.

    Oooh. Where is it ? I'm always up for trying fun new brands anyway, even if I don't get into the whole pipe thing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if, were you to become a successful medic, you decided to recommission Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen - to exact your revenge on smokers and the tobacco industry! You make me sick to the stomach!

    I'm all for a ban on public smoking. Some people really are immensely stupid in the places they smoke. Except in pubs and sectioned off areas off restaurants.

    Hopefully Kenneth Clarke will be in the lofty halls of power by that time. And we all know his views about smoking. (For your information - he's a pipe afficianado and works for BAT)

    You would hate Spain - picture people waltzing into clothes shops (or any shop, hotel, public place etc.) and sparking up cheap tabs in your face. Do you think that the Spanish have, for a minute, entertained the idea of a blanket smoking ban? I think not.

    On second thoughts, maybe it would do you good to emigrate there. Seeing as it would be a positively densensitizing experience for somebody as puritanical (and hellbent) as yourself. Good Lord! - I'd even pay for your airtickets!

    Just to keep you updated folks:

    Me: Feeling as triumphalist as ever, and yes Daveo, I have posted your airfare - bon voyage too!

    Daveo: Licking his wounds, regretting the day he ever crossed swords with God himself (a.k.a me), quietly organising his journey to Gatwick and considering which brand of cigarettes to buy from Duty Free, for his first puff.

    Actually I have more important things to do than argue about smoking when i'm clearly the one who is right. I'm not the who who is killing myself am I :rolleyes:

    The day I smoke a cig is the day I relinquish my life to the companies who make those little white killers.

    Well I'm guessing that's tomorrow - as I've sent the ticket by recorded delivery and your flight is in the afternoon. My personal recommendation is B&H Gold or Camel Lights - but it's up to you.

    I'm going to miss you though.

    You never cease to surprise me! As for the future - I strongly feel that the UK should look towards PR China for ideas: a country where civil rights are curtailed, the rich live like Kings and every man, woman and child (over 7-y.o) is an habitual smoker. To paraphrase for you - 'Bliss'.

    I've recently come by a rather fine pipe, but should I use the same tobacco I use for rollups (i.e. Golden Virginia or Drum) or get some of that fancy dandy pipe tobacco ?
    dont use rollups unless u r really bent upon ruining ur throat. try some light stuff initially . i wud recommend captain black preferably ''gold". dont place the pipe on ur tongue wen u start or it will burn it. dont count on one pipe, u will have to buy a few more if u wanna enjoy it.n plez dont smoke cigarettes n pipe at the same time. my advice is just stick to one. dont forget to keep ur pipes clean. enjoy
