  • Harry Heavy smoker since 35 years old, did everything I possibly could to break the habit. My first device was a disposable vape, not a good fit but it inspired me to look out for new alternatives. 5 years’ experiences testing new vape devices, recording and sharing online. I believe that there should be no vaping among young people and non smokers, but, smokers should try vaping as an alternative.
