"Can't Raise an Eyebrow"
How has the pandemic affected your pipe smoking, if at all? For me, as an occasional pipe smoker, the cool/cold weather is usually my prime smoking time of the year. But I seem to be doing less of it this year. I have a chronic tickle in the back of my throat and have had since way before the pandemic, probably due to gastric reflux and/or post nasal drip, and just about anything can make me cough. Yes it has been thoroughly checked out. If I smoke, the next day the frequency of my coughing increases. In this Covid paranoia environment, I don't like the added attention I get from my variable chronic cough. Plus I work in the healthcare industry. I'm not concerned that my occasional pipe smoking would increase my chances of getting Covid, I just don't like the extra scrutiny.
