How many bowls a day?

When I worked for Premal we had a customer that we made a blend for. I cant remember what the blend was exactly but I think it was 50% latakia and 50% HGL. He ordered 5 pounds every month and would get upset if we were out of stock or there was a delay.
Holy Smokes! That has to be some sort of record. At 3gms/bowl, which is a pretty fair amount of tobacco, that is right at 25 bowls/day. That is assuming he wasn't squirreling some away. Even if he was, that is some solid smoking!

On average, 2.5. One before work with my coffee and one after work/after dinner. On a good day, both one after work and another after dinner. (Today is a good day) :)
Weekends...usually the same, but with one or two more in the afternoon if not leaving the house.

I think he used very large pipes like big Danish freehands but still it is more than I could ever imagine. That is just over 2oz a day.

This time of year.... I'm lucky to get in a couple a MONTH. Thank the gods for General snus and snuff. BUT.... MMM is coming! I have a 4 day weekend coming up starting tomorrow, I think I will drag out all my meers and give them their pre-MMM cleaning.
Think how long your tobacco stash will last at your rate of consumption! Maybe I need to cut back.

I think I have probably two life-times of tobacco cellared up right now. Hela, I'm mid 50's right now... and at the rate I'm smoking... I have a good solid 30-40 yrs of tobacco socked away.
My goal is to smoke the bejeezus out of what I have so I actually have to buy more.

I've picked up smoking a lot more than I used to, due to my night time ritual of a pipe and a drink with my wife (she smokes cigs) just before bed time.
When the house has quieted down, with all 3 of the kids in bed and all chores finished for the day, we like to finish the day that way.

Other than the weekends, it's usually one pipe a day, most times with small bowls while having a little chat with my wife.
I've calculated that I go through about 50g (one tin) a month...

at that rate, my cellar will only last me only about 5 years. Time to stock up.

That said, I only started smoking pipes 5 years ago and have yet to finish tin number 20. and so far, I have not smoked
much from my cellar. Every time I finish a tin, I buy 3 more, smoking one of the fresh ones and cellaring the other 2.

Between 5 and 8 a week, usually closer to 5 lately. I smoke between work and bed on all my work days, but on my offdays I am usually having snuff and snus. The snuffs I enjoy are fairly stout, as are pretty much all the pipe blends I enjoy. Eventually I'd like to have a pouch of snus in pretty much all the time and add snuff and pipes to that, without ending up a sweating nauseated mess. I'm still working on that second part, lol...
