    I have my favs too that I can't even figure out what flavorings they're using let alone duplicate them. I'm hoping that if things go south they'll sell that mixed flavoring and just say how much base to put it in or just sell it zero nic with some masked direction for a PC or VG nic amount to add. Hey, I have to hope... the other option is too dismal and causes panic attacks.

    I agree with you (the part I bolded). Isn't that the weirdest thing?

    You have 2 and I have ZERO closer than a 5 hour drive

    We will manage somehow.

    When I first started vaping at the end of March I heard about the deeming regs that were supposed to come down in April. I panicked. I mean serious full tilt panic.

    Right then I started my plan to stock up on things I wouldn't be able to do for myself like attys. I picked up Mechs and Rebuildables.

    I learned to DIY. I didn't even bother with buying juice. After my first few orders of juice I just started using my own homemade so I never got a taste for designer juice. I CHOSE to reduce my nic levels. I went from 12mg to 1mg now. I could do zero now if I had to.

    What I have been watching is what hardware the online shops are clearing out. SO many are dumping thier stock of cigalikes. Makes me wonder if they know something about how it is going to go on hardware.

    I am also looking at the big name new entries to the market. PLAYBOY is doing an ego type device. Johnson Creek who does the juice for the Blu has their own line of Ego type devices. If anyone knew anything about what is coming down the pipe it would be Johnson Creek. For that matter I don't see Playboy jumping into a sinking ship AFTER the sink has been announced. Their line was announced shortly after I started vaping when the coming deeming was well known.

    Watch the big players people. They won't get caught out if they can help it.

    I do admit I found a cigalike that although it aint my favorite thing in the world I could at least cope with in a real pinch (NOT Blu).

    The best cure for panic is rational thought and considered planning.

    My 2 cents on it.

    I've been making my own juice for a while now. I started DIY'ing while I still had great pre-mixed juices to vape, but I never tried to reproduce those. Yes, I took my favorite flavors as a starting point in determining what I would try first. But I never did get why I would not just start from scratch and see what I could come up with. I'm kinda like that when I cook too. My wife always asks me what I put in it this time. Not everything will work out, but when it does finally come together it's great.

    Yup, if anything becomes a problem it's going to be the nic.

    Ovale came out with the Emini and Joye the Eroll cigalikes.... both proprietary. I think that's a good sign. And Joye came out with the new Ego CC with its unique proprietary design. So the big players are still sinking money into innovation.

    There's no way the govt (any of its arms) is going to give up a way to rake in the cash. Ban nic sales anywhere... make it hard to get... and they loose... MONEY! And without the hardware who's going to buy nic? So I figure what we need will still be around just in their approved forms and very pricey with "sin" taxes. If I'm wrong, they're more dim witted than I thought they were to give up such a cash cow. But, I suppose, stranger things have happened.

    I'm having trouble too - the only one I've been able to make right is menthol. Luckily, menthol is my ADV. So that is a huge savings and super easy to do. But trying to make complex flavors like Caramelnut Mocha - OMG complete fail.
