Pipe Smoking

In a nutshell, pipe tobacco can be considered one of the oldest forms of consuming tobacco in the world, if not the oldest. There are centuries of history behind its first usage by the indigenous people of America, which dates back centuries ago. It is believed that the first consumers added ingredients to tobacco such as honey, licorice, and spices to make pipe tobacco as we know it today. Up until the 1960s, pipe smoking was one of the most popular forms of tobacco consumption in Europe. Since the 1980s onwards, the use of European pipe tobacco has declined significantly, and today only a very small percentage of smokers still use the traditional pipe in their smoking habits.
