Apricot and honeydew come together in this interesting sour blend. If you’ve been looking for something different, you may want to give Twelve Steps from Vapors Anonymous a go.

First Impressions:

I was not trilled about this flavor. I’m not the biggest fan of apricots to begin with, so bringing another layer into the mix (sour) had me a bit worried. Nevertheless, I totally dig the title, branding, and overall design of the Vapors Anonymous line-up. The center logo lettering is a bit hard to read (just needs to be a touch larger), but everything else is perfect.

Flavor Profile:

Satisfy your taste buds with this fruity and sour vape juice blend. A delicious apricot and honeydew exhale with a hint of sour to finish it off.


I picked up on the sour addition immediately, it reminded me of a sour cabbage patch kid or a warhead (for anyone who’s old enough to remember those…). I did take note of apricot as well, and if I had to go off smell alone, I’d say that the two may be a good combination. No sign of the honeydew at this point, but I do hope to find a bit of that freshness on the backend.

My Setup:

Dual claptons on the deck of the Twisted Messes Squared RDA, airflow closed 25-75%. Pulsed on the Volcano E-cigs Lavabox DNA 200 (40-60 watts).


Front – Okay, this one is sour. It’s enough to create a bit of a throat hit, nothing too harsh, but just enough. I had to really shut my airflow down to pick up on any notes of apricot, and even then, they were barely noticeable. No sign of the honeydew flavor mentioned in the description.

Middle – I turned my airflow down halfway through this review, in an attempt to find some of the fruity characteristics of the vape; and I’m glad I did! The Vapors Anonymous Twelve Steps really came alive after my airflow adjustment. I was able to pick up on notes of sliced dried apricot, and notes of honeydew on the backend of my palate. No sugars to note here, which is probably a good thing.

End – With the airflow cutoff, the fruits were thrown at my palate all at once. The apricot and honeydew actually work really well together. Vapors Anonymous Twelve Steps remains sour, but it’s much more tolerable towards the end, and almost an afterthought.

Aftertaste – No lingering issues to note here. As with the other Vapors Anonymous flavors I’ve tested thus far, the sugar level is low, which really helps to cut the filmy residue that can be associated with dessert vapes.


Airflow was a big game changer for this liquid. Twelve Steps changes from a Sour Patch Kids’ style flavor with subtle hints of apricot on the backend (airflow 10-25%), to a fruity blend of apricot and honeydew with a sour addition (airflow 75% off).

Cloud Production:

At 60w, 70/30 blends chuck a good amount of vapor. But compared to a 100%, the difference in the cloud density is like night and day. No big deal for me, but if you’re into cloud chasing, you may want to look elsewhere.

Final Thoughts:

I was a bit skeptical about Twelve Steps at first, but much to my surprise, it turned out to be a very flavorful liquid. I don’t think I’d be able to vape this one all day, but I would certainly recommend this guy to a friend.
