My Journey To A Smoke Free Life.
Hi! My name it Trei I started vaping in 2016 to aid in stopping smoking, at that time it was a stressful time in my life, and I was up to a pack and a half a day. I was experiencing 3:00pm headaches, brain fog, and my asthma was getting bad, that's when I met my now fiancé Jordan, he introduced me to vaping. He helped me get set up with a device and a delicious flavor that worked for me. I tried what felt like a hundred different flavor’s, before I finally settled on one that was perfect to my needs.
When I first made the transition; the first few days were a little rough, I experienced a bit of coughing, which is totally normal if you are transitioning from smoking to vaping, that passed after a few days. It wasn't too long before I started feeling really good and had little to no cravings for cigarettes, my headaches were gone, I could think more clearly, and I didn't smell like an ashtray. I found that I could easily go for a hike and not feel like lungs may collapse. In my mind that was a huge win! As time went on, I stayed dedicated to not smoking and just vaping. Making the choice to quit something takes strength and dedication, I still had the odd cravings but for the most part they were gone, and I have not looked back yet.
In the summer of 2019, I joined the VapouRevolution family in Kelowna B.C. I have learned so much about vaping since I started working for the company. I love my job, the staff and our loyal customers, especially the doggos some of them bring in with them.
I have to say that I get so excited to help new customers start their journey in quitting smoking, because I have been there myself.
I believe education is key to quitting smoking. We are all unique individuals, and that applies to vaping as well. We have different requirements and unique flavor profiles; one person might love a specific device or liquid and the next can’t stand it. I like to ask when a new customer comes in what their smoking or vaping habits are and most importantly what flavors they tried, what their favorite was and what they absolutely didn't like. That helps give me a base to start with, so I can make suggestions that I think may work. 8/10 times I get it right, and have a happy human on their way to a smoke free life.
We are all human and all so unique, so trial and error is important, just keep on trying until you find what works best for you, like I did.

Hey everyone, name's Alex, I'm a part of the team up in Yellowknife. I've been a vaper for just about 4 years now and this is my story.
Before I discovered the wonderful world of vaping, I was a smoker. I smoked just about 2 and a half packs a day. I had tried quitting a number of times over the 11 years that I smoked, nothing worked for me. I smelt like an ash tray and at my worst doing the most basic of exercises was a challenge. I hated how I felt and smelled, but I didn't know how to solve the problem. Then one day I stumbled upon a new shop that had opened up and I had a peek inside. It turned out that a vape store had popped up in my hometown of Whitehorse and being naturally curious I started asking questions. About two weeks later, I'm buying my very first vape and the difference that it made was nothing short of life changing. About two weeks after I started, I began to taste my favorite foods way better. I could smell better among other things that just made my life so much easier. As the weeks and months passed, I started to get into vaping properly and I got my first box mod, then my first rebuildable etc. Ever since I made the change, life has slowly gotten better to the point where I don't even think about picking up another cigarette. My favorite flavor that I have vaped from the very beginning to this day has got to be Bucktooth from Beaversauce. Fast forward to present day, I now work for the amazing company that helped me start my journey into vaping. I'm super thankful not only to the team that I work with but for the opportunity to better the way that I live.

Hi there, my name is Natalie I been in the Fort St. John Area for about 15 years and been with VapouRevolution for almost two.
I started at VapouRevolution thinking I was not going to stay long or get any benefit from working in retail. The past two years though I have met some amazing people, learned so much about the vaping industry and I get to work with some of the most hardworking people I know. I have been vaping for two years now and my favorite E-juice is Dam Iced by Beaver Sauce.
