Meet Mt. Baker Vapor – Sean’s Story

There is nothing like that first cigarette in the morning. That amazing rush, the feeling of calming and lightheadedness. It’s what starts the addiction. I started smoking around 22 years-old, and ever since I started, I had always known I was going to have a hard time quitting. Between the stress of work, school, and family, a cigarette would really help me get through my everyday struggles.

The first time I was introduced to a mechanical mod was at a party back in LA. One of my good friends let me try it out and soon after, I realized that vaping was going to be my savior from my addiction to smoking. I went to my local vape store with the intentions of buying an E-cig and to use it to quit my awful habit. The first setup I received was an eGo-C Twist with Kanger protank 3 and some e-juice.

I’m not going to lie, I definitely didn’t just quit smoking that easy. Vaping was a great deterrent for a bit but the hunger came back and nothing would feed it better than an analog. It wasn’t until I met my girlfriend and moved to Washington that I finally bit the bullet and quit smoking. Shorty after, I got an amazing job with a vaping company called Mt. Baker Vapor!

Once I moved to Washington life became a little less stressful and a lot more easy. Life in L.A. was far too hectic and stressful. Shortly after the move, I set a quit date for myself and stuck to it. About a month after I finally quit smoking, I started working for Mt. Baker Vapor. Within my first week working there, I got a really nice Mod and tank; The MVP with the Nautilus mini, and all the juice I could vape. Now when I say “quit,” I’m talking about quitting smoking. I’m not saying vaping is more or less healthy, and I vape nicotine from time to time, but I try to stick to no nicotine as much as I can. I can say I feel much better being a vaper than I did while I was a smoker.

For about three months now, I have been working for Mt. Baker Vapor and I can only say I love my job. I started out working in the wholesale department and had a great time. Even though the stress of making cold calls, I tried to be the best salesman I could be. One day, I got the opportunity to show my true talent for the company and draw up some graphics for our store. Shortly after, I was offered a new job title and a raise as a graphics designer in marketing. That moment was when my dreams started to come true. Finally, I had the opportunity to let my creativity fly.

Working for Mt. Baker Vapor is amazing and the opportunities with this company are endless, like my creativity. Every day is better than the last and the Marketing department has got to be the best group of people I have ever met. From day one, I have felt at home with this company. With everything from trying new e-juice, to creating new logos, I have been able to let my creativity run wild.
