ST Scholarship Program
SmokeTastic is dedicated to finding solutions to quit smoking and one way is through electronic cigarettes. Our site looks at the best e cigarettes and other vaping devices on the market to make it as easy as possible to quit smoking quickly and efficiently. We do try to support students through their student life, and one way we thought, was by creating a scholarship. We do believe in helping passionate and dedicated students throughout their student life.
Vaping is becoming a very social habit, we do not support people trying e cigs or any other vaping device if they are currently a non-smoker, we concentrate on helping users transit from smoking to vaping and we try to review all the different types of products on the market, provide useful research and also show the best vape deals we can find online.
