I recently took up pipe smoking again. It's hard to beat a relaxing smoke on a Sunday evening. And the tobacco options are amazing, I'm smoking a tin of Balkans stuff right now

Copenhagen fine cut was great.

Fine cut? That tiny-cut stuff with the texture of sand? Nah, long cut is where it's at.  ;)

I just use the ultra cheap, probably the cheapest of the cheapest, longhorn straight pouches. In my opinion they are delicious and I love being able to move the pouch around in my mouth. Once I'm done I just tossed the pouch and take a shot of mouthwash. Swish it around can follow that with some water to rinse the rest of it out.

In my experience dip is more addictive than cigarettes.

Quote from: Romans 8:13
For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die: but if by the Spirit you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live.

Quote from: Ephesians 5:1-7
Be ye therefore followers of God, as most dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath delivered himself for us, an oblation and a sacrifice to God for an odour of sweetness. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not so much as be named among you, as becometh saints: Or obscenity, or foolish talking, or scurrility, which is to no purpose; but rather giving of thanks. For know you this and understand, that no fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person (which is a serving of idols), hath inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of these things cometh the anger of God upon the children of unbelief. Be ye not therefore partakers with them.

I have seen many priests smoking tobacco. Further i have not heard a sermon saying that cigaret smoking is sinful. Although it seems to me that cigaret smoking, inasmuch as it can cause cancer, would be a sin since you are harming your body and we are supposed to take care of our health?

I'd say that cigarette smoking can be sinful if it becomes a habit that is detrimental to your health and finances.

An occasional smoke doesn't seem to meet the requirements for sin.
"For there are no works of power, dearly-beloved, without the trials of temptations, there is no faith without proof, no contest without a foe, no victory without conflict. This life of ours is in the midst of snares, in the midst of battles; if we do not wish to be deceived, we must watch: if we want to overcome, we must fight." - St. Leo the Great

Actually my current pipe is a French made one.  I got the No. 7 sandblast.
