I started pipe smoking just because I like Sherlock Holmes.
I started pipe smoking in January 2018. I even hated smokers before, but I thought it’s good to start to new things to get out of my comfort zone.
There are many things to learn to smoke properly, but the process is fun.
I’ve never known a person who started smoking because of Sherlock Holmes, so this page about Holmes and pipe smoking might be helpful for some people, hopefully.
What you need to start smoking pipes
What you need for pipe smoking at least is a pipe, pipe tobacco, a lighter, a tamper, and cleaners.
A pipe is available even on Amazon, but I like buying one on eBay because they have cheap European pipes.

I like collections tins of pipe tobaccos.

Jars are useful to store tabaccos.

Practice, practice, practice.
It is highly likely rather difficult for most people to smoke a pipe for the first couple of months. You can find many tutorials on Youtube, but you may still find it hard to smoke in a satisfying way. All you need is to continue practising!
