    Ever had a day when you just couldn't get a taste from your pipe? I'm sure it's just my physiology that day but every now and then...nothing. I'm just going thru the motions.

    Happens to the best of us. I'm sure your taste buds will be back to normal in a day or two.

    Yes. I determined it to be due to smoking Latakia rich Samuel Gawith Balkan Flake in excess. It took weeks to regain my ability to really enjoy the flavor of tobacco.

    I have the random off day like this. Usually just dump the bowl and decide today is not my day.

    Had one of those days last week. Nothing tasted good.

    Thankfully, it’s usually is a one day occurrence and your back in the flavor saddle the next day.

    Yeh, usually right before I start running a fever. I hope your not getting sick. Take care, and hopefully your next bowl will be a tasty one.

    Yes it happens.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    Absolutely. And another issue is bothering me lately. One of my favorite VaPers, Doblone d’ Oro, tastes like cigarettes. I even opened a new tin, but still tastes the same. I have no idea what is going on, but my perceived taste of this blend has definitely changed. Hopefully it will return in the spring when the weather and humidity change.

    I definitely have the occasional off day where everything is harsh and bitey. Certainly something to do with chemistry I guess and tried just smoking through it but even that usually doesn’t work. Completely unpredictable and I loath those days.

    The real question is how’s your backcast?

    When I ingest Lorazepam (an anxiolytic), my palate goes weird/numb and I can barely enjoy smoking my pipes.

    I get this on occasion. I have really bad allergies and when they act up, nothing tastes right, not even food. Those are the days I either refrain from smoking altogether, or if my sense of smell isn't affected, then maybe I'll just smoke a nice smelling aromatic to at least have me some tobacco potpourri going.

    Backcast is doing just fine. Not getting sick. 2nd day and I'm getting a little taste back. Glad it's not just me. Misery loves company.
