Being the good Irish boy that I am, Tom Crean needs a mention.

You don’t have to smoke to be a good host. It’s true. You do, however, have to extend the privilege to your guests. And when I say “extend” I don’t mean letting them brood on a frozen balcony with cigarettes clenched between chattering teeth. You want smokers at your party and you want them to be comfortable. Why? Because smokers are the best partyers.
Think about it—anyone who smokes in this day and age of acute awareness of the many and sundry risks involved obviously has a death wish. They’re risk takers. So are stuntmen, soldiers of fortune, test pilots and spies. And those are precisely the sort of people you want to party down with.

Great post Dave :lol:

Funnily enough, I was at a 40th birthday party last night, and my pipe smoking certainly got people talking to me. I dressed in my new look Tamper Peterson mode, the one that has all the fathers of heavily built daughters from Dunoon to Aberfeldy quaking in their boots. ( Harris tweed jacket, tattersall check shirt, Chinos, FVF in a Dunhill, and an attitude to match :lol: )
They had two marquees in the back garden for the smokers, and a caterer from the Spice of Life Indian restaurant supplying the food. Great night indeed

Oh, I saved that picture.

Regards,
Jim

Aleister Crowley was very famous for being able to smoke pure perique soaked in Rum. Not just that, but it was his favorite, according to him.

Oh, he was also the Great Beast 666, the Master Therion, Frater Perdurabo, a small host of other identities and the Prophet of the New Aeon, and the single greatest occultist of the 20th century.


Sadly, a lifetime of pipe smoking, heavy drug use and completely unrestricted wanton promiscuous sex led Crowley to die at the tragically young age of 72. Here's old Aleister with, as he liked to say "Nothing left but pipe and wit":

The most notorious Occultist Dave. IMHO, the greatest Occultist of the 20th century was Austin Osman Spare.
