My name is William and I am half (probably the better half...lol) of the duo that operates VistaVapors.com. I wanted to introduce myself to our VistaVapors, Inc. family and personally extend my wholehearted appreciation to every single one of you who have supported us in becoming one of the leading "go to" sites for your e-juice needs. I also aspire to get to know you as I share a little about me and my motivation for starting VistaVapors. We look forward to your stories of how and why you began using e-cigs, whether it was to aid in smoking cessation, like me, or a first time recreational thing which turned into a passion.
So, here’s a brief summary of my story. I was a smoker for over 18 years... It was not something I was proud of because I wanted to be a positive example to my family and friends, especially a good role model for my children. I was on a mission to quit. So over the years, I tried a variety of things...Hypnosis, the patch, medicine, gum, cold turkey...all were unsuccessful. I was ready to "give up on giving up", when I discovered vaping...I tried it and loved it. Although I at first was skeptical and hesitant of totally quitting, I knew the potential was there for the first time in my life! So, I spent the next 4 months evaluating lots of e-juices, assessing tons of equipment and spending A LOT of money before arriving at a comfortable and acceptable position of no longer "needing" a traditional cigarette.
I became so passionate about vaping and what it had done for me that I wanted everyone to know about it. During this process I was challenged with the question of "what is in e-juice". Thus my journey began with countless nights of online research, talking to people in the industry, studying reports & doctors' findings, and meeting with scientists. I was fascinated and excited about what I was learning, not only the huge cost savings, but more importantly, the elimination of many chemicals. At this point I remember thinking I needed to find a way to sell the best & most affordable e-juice in America, and thus my journey began which ultimately lead me to partnering with David and starting VistaVapors, Inc.
Hi I’m David and I’m part owner of VistaVapors, Inc. along with William. I wanted to introduce myself and offer my thanks to our entire team from our customer service department, marketing and graphics, quality assurance, packaging and shipping departments to all of our advisers. Not to mention every, single supportive customers who has made VistaVapors what it is today. I am excited to be able to hear all of the stories that you have to tell about your journey’s from switching from analog to e-cigarettes. I am not a smoker and never have been due to losing both of my grandfathers to smoking related deaths. I remember as a child watching one of them alternating with a lit cigarette and an oxygen mask, occasionally losing his facial hair because the two got too close together. The other died at 67. The way I saw it, cigarettes not only stole my grandfathers from me, but took from them the extra years they would have spent watching their grandchildren grow up, get married and have their great-grandchildren. Though many of my friends took up smoking, because of this, I vowed never to smoke. I never even took my first drag of a cigarette until I was 21; so when William approached me with getting into this business I was extremely hesitant. All I heard was the word "cigarette".
Hesitantly I went with him to an "ecig store". I remember every minute in the store I was amazed with how many people had stories of how long they had been "smoke free". Looking at the smiles on their faces and the passion they had for this I knew vaping was something special. I was all in.
Through vaping I've watched my friend (William) completely quit smoking. He’s worked his way out of nicotine addiction and is on a path that, if he wanted to, he could be done with nicotine completely. He's in control of something that once had control over him. This is my favorite part of vaping, giving people a way to take control over nicotine and win over something that has been a burden in their lives for far too long.
My favorite customers by far are the 50 year smokers who switch to vaping and love it. Hearing the joy in their voices as they talk about how happy they are and the new hope that vaping has given them is the best part about this to me; very few things beat that. So, that’s my story and I can hardly wait to hear each of your stories and thank you all again for making VistaVapors apart of your journey.
