Oddly enough, I'm the latest addition to this dwindling band. I've smoked roll-ups for years because I refuse to 1.stop smoking 2. pay ten quid for twenty cigs. The pipe "thing" seems like a natural progression although I still smoke rollies. The next progression is probably emulsioning the ceiling more often!

Smoked since I was 8 years old, used to buy single Woodbines from the shop on Selby Road, although you could buy a packet of two.
Someone once gave me a full strength Capstan, god I thought my mouth had exploded. Had to stop 10 years ago now as they needed to replace a few pistons and pipes in the old ticker, still I have a nice zipper up the chest, its quite a showpiece.
I do miss it but the prices are stupid now. Never could get into the roll ups Liits, couldn't do them, its an art I believe.
Is this the end of the story ...
or the beginning of a legend?

Even at school, when the fashion moved on from smoking Rothmans Whizz-kids to roll-ups, I stick with the ready made ones because I couldn't roll. Many years later I did master it although, even after all this time, they still often look as though they've been rolled with an axe.
I'm finding the pipe thing a bit tricky and by the time I've finished faffing around I don't have the "urge" so I'm smoking a lot less. A good thing, I suppose, and better still because I don't have the guts to smoke it in public. That is a very Hipster thing to do and that's certainly not me!
