As I read through the what are you smoking section each day, and night, I noticed a trend for a lot of the smokers. When you are smoking, a lot of you are having a soda or some sweet flavored drink along with your pipe. So. Doesn't that sweetness adversely affect or enhance the flavors of the tobacco you are smoking, so that it tends to be a less accurate experience of flavors in the tobacco? The same could be said for some coffee's as well I am sure. I primarily drink unsweetened ice tea all the time, and it does not leave any tastes in my mouth, but if I drank soda, I think it would change anything I was smoking to some degree. Sorry for rambling on.
