We Want to Hear Your Vaping Success Story!

vaping success stories

One of the best parts about working at Mt. Baker Vapor is getting to hear from so many customers about how vaping has positively impacted them. Every day it seems our Facebook and other social media pages are flooded with stories from people who have taken up vaping and seen a significant increase in their personal quality of life.

We feel like this is an aspect of the community that deserves more attention. While everyone loves hearing about new flavors and exciting hardware developments, at the end of the day this industry is about helping people live better.

With that in mind, we wanted to extend an offer:

Every week we will be featuring one customer’s personal vaping success story on our company blog. The topic can cover anything you want: the joys of learning a new hobby, bonding with new people about a shared interest, getting off smoking cigarettes, or whatever else you love about this great pastime. The only requirements are that the story is longer that 400 words and that you include a picture for use. That’s it!

We will go through the submissions for each week, choose one story, then feature you on the blog and promote your story via social media. As a special thank you, whoever we choose to feature will receive an 8oz of whatever Mt. Baker Vapor e-juice they desire. It’s a win-win, you get free juice and we help promote the great stories that make vaping awesome.

If you would like to submit a story, please send your submission to kspotz@mtbakervapor.com with the subject line “My Vaping Success Story.” Can’t wait to read what you all have to say!

  1. a little over 2 years ago i suffered a severe Pulmonary embolism that pretty much destroyed my right lung i just about died. Even after my near death experience and the knowledge that smoking puts me at a very high risk of redeveloping a clot, after 8 months of no smoking i picked up a pack of smokes and smoked for about a year after a while i started noticing a increase in pain on my right lung and tried everything to quit again i tried the patch the gum even the pills and nothing did the trick the pills interacted with my medication the patch made me brake out and the gum didn’t really do much of anything. One day i was at the local tobacco shop and they had a vape kit onsale for 29.99 i said “F” it i think i want to give this a shot so i picked up my pack of smokes and that kit i opened the smokes and had a cigarette on my way home and thought to myself i hope this vape thing works. I got home and told my wife about what i picked up at first i thought she was going to be upset that i chucked 30 bucks on something but her only reply was i hope it works. So i fallowed the instructions and took my first vape of a caramel tobacco flavor……….it’s been almost 6 months and i still have that pack of smokes in the glove box with one cigarette took out.. and my pain in my lung has almost gone to 0 🙂 ”””’vape on””””

  2. I smoked cigarettes for 31 years and had NO interest in stopping. I finally invested about $40 in an e-cigarette 6 years ago. I haven’t looked back and couldn’t be happier. Now I can scale the stairs at work without huffing and puffing. I consider e-cigs a life saver…literally.

  3. I was a smoker for damn near 20 years. Got hospitalised for a week, with pnumonia, and some damn chunk of shit in my right lung. Apparently I freaked out a few doctors, so after the x-rays, MRI’s clean air isolation room blah blah blah.

    Shit got better, I was discharged from the hospital. Crushed the pack of smokes that I was smoking on the way to the er (lol) and vowed to quit smoking ’cause I didn’t want to experience that shit again. Hospital food is worse than prison food. Goddam…

    Anyway. 3 days into quitting smoking. I was ready to kill everyone around me.

    My son gave me an old ego twist with a kangertech something. That got me through the first week. Then he took me to a vape store, where I got setup with a bigger battery and a nautilus tank.

    Shit snowballed from there, going on 6 months got me a cool mech, and a brand new sig 150. Learning how to drip. And I’m healthy and happy as holy fuck all.

  4. I smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a day for more than 30 years. I tried everything to quit – patches, gum, even hypnosis. None of them kept me from smoking for more than a few days.

    I decided to try vaping and thanks to Mt Baker Vapor I got a nice hardware setup and have been able to keep myself stocked in Thug Juice.

    I’ve been cigarette-free for a year. My lungs are clear, I can taste and smell food again, my house doesn’t smell like an ashtray and I no longer have to scrabble around looking for a lighter. I don’t know if you guys have saved my life but I know you’ve extended it. I haven’t felt this good since I was a teenager.

    1. I am very happy that we were able to be there for you in your time of need 🙂 Please make sure to send your 400 word story to the email that was provided in the blog 🙂

  5. I started smoking at the age of 17. It wasn’t until I was in my 30’s that I even thought to quit. I tried hypnosis (that lasted about 30 days), I tried the gum (didn’t work for me), I tried the patch (didn’t work for me), I tried Wellbutrin (that made me a bit loopy), I tried the patch AGAIN (nope – still didn’t work for me). Years of trying to quit and I wasn’t having any success. I enjoyed inhaling and exhaling. I enjoyed smoking.

    Flashforward a few years and I found e-cigs! Eureka! THIS is going to make me quit smoking now! Alas, it did not. I was using the ecigs in menthol and just switching between analog and e-cigs because they reminded me of analogs.

    My husband smoked e-cigs and didn’t like me smoking regular cigarettes. I came across an article about vaping and purchased a set-up for HIM to try and I ordered a non-menthol fruit flavored juice for me to try. That was it! I was hooked! Why in the world would I want to smoke a disgusting tasting cigarette when I could vape FRUIT! FRUIT!

    6/11/14 was day I put down cigarettes, after smoking them for 30 years, and started vaping regularly. I started out at 6mg and am now down to 1.5mg. I plan to get down to zero within 6 months. I honestly feel that vaping has changed my life for the better. I can walk up stairs without being winded and without my heart feeling like it’s going to burst out of my chest. Of course, I no longer “stink” of cigarettes.

    It’s been a little over a year since I put cigarettes down and I’m so happy that I discovered vaping!

  6. I started smoking at the age of 17. It wasn’t until I was in my 30′s that I even thought to quit. I tried hypnosis (that lasted about 30 days), I tried the gum (didn’t work for me), I tried the patch (didn’t work for me), I tried Wellbutrin (that made me a bit loopy), I tried the patch AGAIN (nope – still didn’t work for me). Years of trying to quit and I wasn’t having any success. I enjoyed inhaling and exhaling. I enjoyed smoking. I really didn’t see how anything could replace my crutch.

    Flashforward a few years and my regular spot to purchase cigarettes had some e-cigs on display. The cashier told me to try them and I thought EUREKA! THIS is going to make me quit smoking now! Alas, it did not. I was using the ecigs in menthol and just switching between analog and e-cigs because they reminded me of analogs.

    When I met my husband he used e-cigs and he complained about me smoking regular cigarettes. One day, I came across an article about vaping, did some googling and finally purchased a basic pen set-up for HIM to try and I ordered a non-menthol fruit flavored juice for me to try. (it was probably free with his order) That was it! I was hooked! Why in the world would I want to smoke a disgusting tasting cigarette when I could vape FRUIT! FRUIT!

    We’ve gone through many different flavors of juice and many different companies to find the right one. I’m happy to say MBV Extreme Mint is my all day vape (ADV) and I’ve tried many different brands and flavors.

    6/11/14 was day I put down cigarettes, after smoking them for 30 years, and started vaping regularly. I started out at 6mg and am now down to 1.5mg. I plan to get down to zero within 6 months. I honestly feel that vaping has changed my life for the better. I can walk up stairs without being winded and without my heart feeling like it’s going to burst out of my chest. Of course, I no longer “stink” of cigarettes. It’s basically a win-win for me.

    It’s been a little over a year since I put cigarettes down and I’m so happy that I discovered vaping! I do tell people I know about the benefits of vaping and if strangers inquire, I tell them too. I don’t even see the point of smoking when you can vape caramel or pineapple or chocolate!

  7. I started smoking when i was 16, it wasn’t an all the time thing, but as time went on my cravings grew. i started out smoking the cigars in a pack, rationalizing that they weren’t cigarettes, that was a lie. I finally got some real cigarettes, and loandbehold, i smoking bare minimum 2 packs a week. i tried lots of different brands, and it was great. The harmful effects hadn’t really kicked in yet at that point. i had tried different ecigs and ego mods, but they all failed me until i got serious about it. i got a joytech ego with pass-through, and a protank, and that served me well for about a month until i decided i wanted more, and i wanted to really get into the hobby. i then got an eleaf and an isub tank, and i’m about a month in on that. i quit smoking cigarettes( i was smoking about a pack a day for 2 months and i realized what i was doing to myself) . i still smoke the occasional cigar, only for pure enjoyment, but I’ve been cigarette free for over 4 months. I can smell the rain, taste the steaks, and best of, i can walk around knowing i smell like yummy deserts rather than nasty cigarettes. if you smoke cigarettes now, get a vape setup, skip the ego, get an eleaf 30watt and something like a protank to start off with, trust me, you will love it. it may taste bad at first, but as your progress you can buy a better tank and better juices.

  8. I started smoking at 14 (I know, ridiculously young, but I worked at a restaurant and it was the norm) , and became a pack a day smoker for the next 4 years.

    After discovering vaping, and buying my own setup from MBV, I haven’t picked up a cigarette since.

    I now notice how much I actually smelled when I used to smoke, and I can finally run again without being winded!

  9. Vaping has helped me so much. I’ve been smoking about a pack a day and dipping around half a tin a day. Tobacco has been such a pressure in my life for 8 years, and quitting methods never did anything for me. You name it, I tried it… One day a coworker showed me his vaping setup, and I thought about it for weeks. All I could think about was that I’d end up spending at least $100 for another failure. But finally I bought my own setup. 3 months later I can breathe, I can smell and taste everything, and life in general seems better. I’m not going to advocate vaping as a totally safe habit, but it certainly is far better than the alternative. I haven’t touched any form of tobacco in months. I may have an urge now and then, but vaping completely takes care of it. My endgame is to quit vaping eventually as well, but for now it has been a savior. A delicious, craving stopping savior.

    1. This is what we like to hear! As much as we don’t want to lose customers we care way more about people beating their addictions and eventually getting off of nicotine all together. We just want you to be healthy and happy!

  10. So I want say yesterday was my 1 year no cig anniversary. But I have been struggling for the last 2 to 3 months I crave a darn cig so bad and vapeing just not doing it so I placed a order on Saturday. Instead of getting the normal fruit flavor freebie I opt for the menthol ( I was truely wanted a tobacco flavor but didn’t see it.) so I got my order today. Put my fav strawberry kiwi in my tank and I’m still wanting a damn cig so bad I said ok let’s try the menthol. So I had 1 part strawberry kiwi and throw in 1 part Green Ice and let me say oh my god I’m happy again! Then it came to me I used to smoke Newport and switch to lights when I met my husband but if I was going out with the girls drinking I would stop for a pack of Newport. So of course I need a menthol duh…. Here’s to another year without a cig……Thank You Mt. Baker.

  12. I used to be a light smoker for 10 years, I was only smoking 1~2 packs a week (1 or 2 a night after work). I got interested in vaping after a facebook friend of mine told me about his experience with vaping. He was a pack a day smoker, and had ran out of smokes at a party he was at. A friend of his had some mech-mod & RBA (I don’t know exactly) but he took a couple of decent vapes from it. He said that after that, he didn’t have the craving for a cigarette for 2~3 hours. Also the juice he vapes was only 1.5mg nic.

    So anywho, after hearing about that, I got my first starter stick kit, and was intrigued. The starter stick helped me ween away from cigs. It wasn’t until after I got the Aspire Nautilus Mini & CF battery that I kicked the stinkies.

    I was happy with the Nautilus Mini for about a month, but I was getting jealous of the people at vapor shops I was visiting. They had drippers, RTAs, and box mods. I did about a week of research, and decided to get the VaporShark DNA-40. I found a seller on eBay selling his brand new VS DNA-40 .. he didn’t like how small it was. He was selling it with a new Orchid v3 RTA. I bought it, and I have been very happy with it and the Orchid v3.

    After 2 week of using it, the 510 wire came loose, and I had to send it in for repair. I was bummed, and could not wait to sub-ohm vape again. I did some more research for a 2nd setup, and ended up getting the eVic-VT w/eGo ONE Mega.

  13. I stopped smoking cigarettes 4 years ago because I would have shortness of breath just from walking. Started vaping and well I am here to say I can briskly walk and talk at the same time and I have no problem with shortness of breath. Love being able to vape in my house and car no stinky cigarette oder. .love love love to vape 🙂
