    I've been vaping for approximately 10 months. I have of course first started on the traditional tobacco flavors. And then it was tobacco blends. However recently I've been trying more sweeter and fruitier type of eliquids. Is it normal for a ex cigarette smoker /tobacco flavor vapor guy to start looking at all of the other marvelous flavors out there. Did anybody else go through a similar experience? Just curious thank you for your response.

    No, from what I've seen on here, a gazillion other people have done the same. It seems to be a natural progression for many tobacco flavor vapors. Humble apologies for calling you normal. Congratulations on the 10 months! :toast:

    Yes that is quite normal. At the start you think you need that sweet sweet cigarette flavor *puke* but that's only because you learned to associate that flavor with nicotine kick. As time passes people realize they can have any flavor they like. Getting used to different flavors also can make it harder for some to go back to cigarettes as those taste just awful.
    I enjoy some tobacco extracts (not artificial flavors) from time to time but in reality they taste more like tobacco smells than burning tobacco.

    The only reason I didn't bother with tobaccos this time around, was that I'd vaped before and found them absolutely hideous. With that said, tobacco flavors may well have improved since that time, but I still don't much care for what my husband vapes, and I got him some of the nicer NET tobaccos. I can't stand the taste, and it's not really the taste of cigarettes that kept me smoking. They tasted awful and EVERYTHING tasted awful, as I had smoked away my tastebuds.

    It is also normal (if you ask me) to enter this love affair with this thing called "food" which I had never really tasted as an adult. Believe me, my "new" tastebuds are one more thing keeping me from returning to smoking.

    Yes, you are normal.

    I only smoked menthol cigarettes, so I started vaping with a menthol flavor. I tried a few of the tobacco flavors out of curiousity, but meh. Most were nasty.

    I quickly branched out to fruit and coffee flavors. Currently my favorite flavor is coffee cake.

    Probably. Though I still like tobacco flavor vapes. I have drifted toward fruits and even candy flavored vape recently for part of the time.

    I've discovered recently that I always loved tobacco. I wasn't addicted to nicotine. I just loved the act of smoking.
    When I quit smoking, my first instinct was to distance myself from tobacco. I spent a few months trying the fruits, bakery etc. Eventually bought a gazillion concentrates and started making my own "flavours". That didn't go well and confused me even more....
    Then somehow I tried a tobacco flavour, and it hit a instant cord with me. I then started collecting a few gazillion more tobacco concentrates. Made loads of flavours again. I thought I was in my happy place but something still was amiss...
    Then I discovered NETs and the process repeated itself again...
    Longer story short...with all these hundreds of flavours around me, i've settled on HHV. Its all i've been doing for the last few months now. The absolute best for me being Triple Thread with 10% Aroma WTA mixed in. Its the closest thing to a real smoke i've tasted. To me this is how smoking should've been. Not the damn route big tobacco took us on...!!!
    I'm doing Organic smoking :thumbs:

    Vaping for a few years now. Started out with really sweet stuff THEN I discovered tobacco flavors and that's all I vaped for about a year. Since then I have gradually moved towards light sweet stuff, custards, creams. I do not like really sweet vapes. If its too sweet I'm good for about 4 or 5 puffs and then I'm pouring it out.

    If you REALLY want the authentic cigarette taste when vaping, you have to buy unflavored juice, and then roll your drip tip around in an ashtray before vaping it. Otherwise, vape what tastes the best to you personally. Enjoy.

    I personally know a few who used various tobacco eliquids when they were first switching to vaping. But all of them moved away from them to other flavors after maybe 3-4 months. I never wanted to even try any tobacco though, because I wanted something totally different. The first eliquids I chose were Mint Chocolate, Coffee, Vanilla Bean, and NannerBerry. They did the trick for me, and I was able to get off the smokes and never have even a craving for another one.

    In the longrun...finding whatever type of eliquid works for you, is what's important. We're all different and have gone down many different paths to being smoke-free and loving vaping now.

    Ten months is a long time. Way to go!

    I was more stubborn than you. I chased that perfect tobacco flavor 'round and 'round and boo coo bucks later I realized that I'd never find it.

    Now it's coffee, desserts, beverages, sweets, some fruits and I'm wide open to other possibilities.

    Vegetables? Who knows.

    I started with tobacco flavors, branched out & tried all sorts of non tobacco flavors of course I always had tobacco flavors to fall back on.
    Took me about two years to get through tons of flavors and find I prefer tobaccos, I cannot tolerate sweet, NET & WTA doesn't agree with me.
    I gave away & dumped literally gallons of e liquids trying to find something I liked or could even tolerate that were non tobacco flavors.

    When I say tobacco I mean actual tobacco not cigarette only non sweet, no hints of this or that, tobaccos.
    Blends of a few to several are my favorites, my ADV is a blend of 5 tobaccos. I love tobaccos.
    When / if I run out, unflavored works for me, but, it can be too sweet after a few days to be an ADV.

    I still like both tobacco blend type juice and assorted custards, fruits, and whatnot. Vape whatever makes your happy and away from smoking. Changing tastes is hardly unusual and not just restricted to vaping.

    No I just buy straight tobacco juice and mix it with Menthol juice and it tastes just like a Newport. Not exactly like a Newport but it's close enough that you should enjoy it. It's really very easy. Just add more menthol until you like it
    Let me give you an example this might help you. My wife only Vapes pina colada. I bought her all kinds of pina colada and none of them she liked. So I got for her a bottle of pineapple. And I got a bottle of coconut for her. She puts 3/4 of a tank of pineapple. With a quarter tank of coconut. She's been happy ever since. She adjusts it for different amounts of flavor
    do you get it kind of?
