Lunting
(LUNT-ing)
Noun:
-The activity of walking about whilst smoking a pipe.

From 1540-50; Dutch "lont" match, fuse; akin to Middle Low German "lunte" match, wick.
The word "lunt" means a match; the flame used to light a fire. It also means smoke or steam, especially smoke from a tobacco pipe.

Used in a sentence:
“If it weren’t for lunting, I’m afraid I’d get little to no exercise at all.”
