Since I am new on smoking a pipe, and I want to try different tobaccos , sometimes I found myself kind overdoing it , and , feeling sick , stomach , headaches , tong bite , and such .
So the question is
1 how many bows should you smoke on a single day ?
2 how many do you smoke in a day ?
3 how many hours should be in between sessions? or how many session in a hour if that is your case 😀

any tips on how not over do it , and how to extend the enjoyment and avoid the side effects ?
Most of us have felt that way in the beginning, for me that was 45 years ago.
I smoke all day, everyday. Pipes, Ciggs, Cigars and when I can't I use snuff.

1 Don’t smoke another bowl because you are dying to try the next blend. Smoke because you are in the mood to smoke a pipe. I did the same as you when I started pipe smoking 16 years ago. I wanted to try everything, and the excitement of a new blend often motivated me to smoke to tongue bite. A PSF box pass made my tongue feel like an old shoe sole and my sinuses were messed up for a week.
2 After the newness of piping wore off, I settled into a “whenever I feel like it” mentality. Once a day, 3 times a week, skip a week or 2 back to back bowls on a beautiful day… I enjoy it much more with this mindset.
3 Same as above

You can tell when your mouth has had enough. When the taste starts going numb, you’ve pushed too far. Relax, smoke when in the mood, and know you can cellar new blends and they will be there when you want to try them.

Does any of you start a bow , and then put it down , and finish it later? i think I have preconceived idea that I have to finish the bow I started , so I can clean my pipe , I think I am being to strict
Fellas around here call this DGT aka Delayed Gratification Technique. Here’s some good threads on it: https://pipesmokersdens.com/search/85112/?q=Dgt&c[title_only]=1&o=date
Personally I think it tastes bad, but just like everyone’s sage advice here: you do you, boo.
