A friend of the family in the US had his own vape company

The flavour and harshness of the nicotine, was hard to find the right one for me

Cosmic Fog Milk & Honey

How did your vaping journey change?

When the Atlantis V1 came out that was a game changer!
I then met Craig Dyer (who still works with us) and him and some other regular customers were on powerful LiPo devices which created so much flavour and cloud and thats when my enthusiasm took the next step

Did you have any other experiences through vaping?
To start with i wanted to get into the industry and was caring for my grandma, she went on holiday and had a picture with my mum on a boat, on the sunset 1 cloud looked like the outline of the UK. It has sun-shining though the dark cloud and after getting into the vape scene it symbolised for me that vaping was a good way to remove the darkness of smoking and its effects. After my grandfather died of cancer and my grandma shortly after, there was more of an emotionally need within myself to help others.
After meeting so many types of people through the industry I realised that even though getting people to quit smoking was a prime objective there was much more to it.
It was bringing people together and gaining a strong social community - Ive seen people meet through vaping and get married, and have lots of fun at vape meets and events and I truly fell in love with the culture. 

What do you think about the ups and downs of the propaganda of vaping?From the beginning its always been apparent and there, but after digging deeper I realised it was never going to go away due to the fact we have to go against some of the most powerful industries in the world to stop it, who are back by endless money and power.I knew it wouldn't be easy, but I also knew it would be impossible to fail.

What is your current favourite set ups? 
Vaptio Tyro with Nautilus 0.7 mesh coil, but still love the Zeltu X due to its ease of use, durability and good battery life.
I do love the hit from a HOG though when I need some clouds!
My favourite ever set up was my Lucifer with Succubus
