Smoking a pipe can be a relaxing and enjoyable hobby, and there’s no reason it shouldn’t be. I want to say that there’s a slight learning curve for smoking a pipe that’s not straightforward as a cigar or cigarette where you light it and go. There is a little bit more maintenance that you have to do while you’re smoking a pipe. It would help if you didn’t get overwhelmed by that, and I also don’t want your first few smoking experiences to taint any future enjoyment you may get from smoking a pipe. Everybody’s first few times smoking can be a little frustrating just because it is something new, and you have to get used to it and learn.
