    How long before you changed from a tobacco type to flavored.. I smoked menthol.. switched to vapeing.. started with a tobacco then to a menthol vape.. hard to find a menthol vape that is real menthol flavor, most are minty.. found a somewhat passable one.. thinking about trying out the flavors.. anyone else have a somewhat same progression? if so how long before you made the switch from a tobacco to a flavor vape.. did you find it as satisfying change?

    I'm still vaping RY4. Not due to anything related to smoking. It is nothing like that any ways. I just really like the taste of RY4.
    If you want a semi decent menthol vape, mix it with joyetech tobacco flavour. start with 50/50.
    I only vaped that once. When it was done I vaped some flavours, then came across ry4. Have not moved on since. RY4 is my ADV, then I just alternate it with something fruity once in a while.

    I actually went the opposite direction when I started vaping.
    For my first few months, whenever I tried to vape a baccy flavor, it made me crave an analog.
    It wasn't until after 2 months in, was I able to enjoy tobacco flavors without wanting a stink stick.
    My adv when I first started was cherry cola and various candy flavors.
    I would try some sweet stuff and see how you like it.
    At the moment I am hooked on dessert flavors and am making a lot of diy juice that are dessert flavor with background tobacco notes. Very yummy.

    It is a mild tobacco, with strong notes of caramel, vanilla, and something else I cant place.
    I really love that stuff.
    RY4 was also one of the original juices when ecig just started out in the mid to late 2000's

    RY4 in all it's variations is a very... confusing flavor. Personally I don't consider it a tobacco flavor. There is a huge thread here about all the different versions:

    When I started I stuck with 2 or 3 very basic tobacco flavors for the first nine months. I just couldn't get past the concept of vaping "weird" flavors before that. I still mostly use tobacco types because I find I get burned out on overly sweet flavors in short order.

    Try the menthols from The Vapor Room - no fake mint flavors masquerading as menthol going on there. Some of them like Port Menthol (think Newport) have a great tobacco flavor behind the menthol.

    I didn't like tobacco flavors when I took up vaping a few years ago. I liked plain old vanilla, coffee, and cherry from the start and expanded out from there. The only tobacco juice I ever really liked was Tobacco Haze from M&P. I still do like it on occasion. I recently tried some other good tobacco vapes and even ordered a few bottles, but I don't think they will ever be ADVs for me.

    I still use tobacco vapes really only Naturally extracted or tobacco absolute versions anymore
    but usually with flavoring like RY4 types or vanilla tobacco and what not

    I actually just got a strait tobacco southern gentleman from MOV
    and really liked it but its been so long since I had a strait tobacco it was strange
    maybe I just got a strange feeling because everything I've vaped up until this point never tasted like smoking

    With that being said I also always have an assortment of other flavs
    like a dessert, something fruity or a tea just to keep the variety

    I usually have at least 5 flavs that I use through out the day but a flavored tobacco is always the bulk of it
    everything else is a supplement

    When I first came off analogs, I wanted non-sweet, dry tobacco flavors. In fact, the ones that fit that description were actually too sweet for me!

    About a month in, I tried an RY4 type juice (Heavenly Army from HHV) and was blown away because it was just fantastic and not overly sweet but more sweet than plain, dry grass.

    Then Halo sent me a sample of Voodoo for advance review -- and it had fruit flavors in it -- and again it just blew me away that I enjoyed it so much (and still do). Then they did it again with Southern Classic, which is a citrus tobacco.

    Now I am trying fruit flavors :) on my 5th month. And I can still enjoy some rough and tumble tobaccos like Apache, which other plainer tobaccos just leave me cold. So even though I am starting to like the fruit and sweeter things, I can still enjoy some bolder tobaccos. Not all -- just the more complex ones. Plain ones are just plain. I like some complexity, multiple flavors not just base ones.

    I DIY 95% or more of the ejuices wife and I use. BluBacco using MVB cocentrate if my wife's favorite at present while I am leaning toward Blue Tobbacco (heartland vapes) flavoring. Wife's desert type is Vanallia Bean Ice Creas (TFA) concentrare and I Am still trying many different BlueBerry and creames. I also vape a great deal of Vanallia Tobacco , Black Honey Tobacco and 555 Tobacco along with a little RY4 from time to time.

    My desire fr tobacco taste cmes from years ago when I smoked a pipe and cigars where you could actualytaste the tobacco. Anologs do not have a tobacco taste at all IMO. I never really enjoyed them but got hooked on them while serviing in VietNam andit took years toget off of them. I have not had a cigerra in around 25 years.
