    Default Effect of flavors on potential to relapse to smoking

    What types of flavors do you use in your liquid and how do these flavors affect your urges to light up the real thing?

    I vape mostly tobacco flavors and they all taste better than the real deal. The more accurate the juice the better.

    I vape dessert flavors. I have no urge to smoke, the juice is too good.

    I vape a signature blend tobacco.. no idea what's actually in it but when I vape it I have no desire for analogs even when its zero nictone. When I vape my fruits, I do crave analogs even when they're 12mgs.

    The nicotine flavor has absoltely no bearing on my desire to smoke. Flavor and desire to smoke have 100% absolutely zero correlation (to me). Its about the nicotine.

    My analogy uses food. If I were to eat chicken and become full, I'd be full and not have desire to eat. If I were to eat steak and become full, I no longer am hungry and therefore have no desire to eat. Same goes for nicotine. If I inhale nicotine, regardless of the flavor, I will become satisfied.

    Out of curiosity, I wanted to try one of the dissolvable strips just to see what they are like. The strip tasted terrible to me, and I realized that somehow I had lost my "taste" for tobacco. It also dawned on me that I had no urges whatsoever to light up and wondered whether it had something to do with my having switched to fruit-type flavors some months below. I finally gave away my stockpile of tobacco-flavored liquid, since I couldn't imagine ever going back to that flavor.

    i would do the same for some flavors that i have that dont particularly care for, if it werent for my fear that the govt will take away our ability to purchase eliquid.

    if they do, i will happily vape the less than desirable flavors i have. when that runs out, idk, maybe we can extract our own nicotine from nightshade plants

    Elaine, I'm afraid the poll leaves me out, as there doesn't seem to be an appropriate choice for me.

    I only use menthol and mint flavors - but specifically NOT the "tobacco-based but menthol added" kind of flavor that the first set of choices seems to imply, that is associated with traditional cigarettes. (I guess that's also why I've had to move to DIY for the most part, as too many sellers seem to provide menthol only with a tobacco flavored base).

    I thought of checking off the 4th choice, but that doesn't really hit what I use either, since I do have to have menthol in my liquid, and haven't really liked any of the fruity or candy based flavors that are available out there.

    In case anyone's wondering WHY I still have the SD as my sig, it's because I got my first ecig in January 2008 but still smoked for 10 months, until I got my first SD. I have other APVs, but also still love and use my SD (with a Bulli on top). I will be forever grateful to Trog for saving my life!

    yvilla you might re-read that ...
    the 1st choice is "Use only tobacco or menthol flavored liquid - have no urges to smoke."

    not tobacco & menthol ....

    I really only vape florals ,but will try a fruit or tea flavor every now & then ....
    so I decided that the fruit answer was probably closest...

    I think she is trying to break it down by "cig like " & "totally NOT cig like "

    & menthol falls in "cig like"

    I had to choose candy, fruit or beverage flavors as the closest in your poll, BUT I am a dessert vaper primarily. Only use espresso in the beverage line, no strictly fruit flavors and no candy flavors. I have never been able to vape anything tobacco flavored at all.

    I vape 4mg nic these days, DIY my juice and have not had any urge to light a cigarette since the day I started vaping 24 Feb 2011.
