A vaping consumer advocate for tobacco harm reduction living in Finland. I started smoking at the age of 13 and kept on smoking a pack a day for 30 years. In March 2014 I got myself a vape pen to see if I could stop smoking. I haven't taken a puff from a cigarette since that day. After noticing how my health improved, I became interested in the research on e-cigarettes and what various health organisations thought about vaping instead of smoking. I was baffled by the opposition against tobacco harm reduction.
